That's an interesting point about the building up of the musical theme, Arwen. I've seen the first film about a dozen times now but that is something I had not noticed. Next time I watch it I will look out for that point.

Welcome to Planet Tolkien, by the way.
Wow Arwen, how can i offer any other suggestions as to what you already have? I just had to reply to tell you how amazing what you wrote about the fellowship is. Reading it, i know that's what makes the books special to me, and i hope to everyone else.
Arwen,
I, too, will listen more closely. What you have noted obviously did not go unnoticed by the Academy as Howard Shore deservedly won the Oscar for his soundtrack.
The one thing I found remarkable about the soundtrack was that it blended in with the screen action so well, I did not consciously notice it during the viewing. However, my subconscious absorbed it all, because when I listened to the LOTR CD, I could visualize the entire movie in my mind. Your theory would explain this, for if the movements were all the same, I may not be able to make that association between the music and the scene.
Thank-you for sharing your amazing observation.
Arwen, your post about the music of the film was nominated for a runner up as Post of the Week. I really liked what you had to say. congratulations.

Well I just wanted to thank you and try to express my surprise, I think my little icon shows it already. The funny thing is that my English teacher says that if there is one thing in the world that I should not do is write (and i always thought that my writing skills were comparable to the ones of a mouse). That's funny..... Again thank you so much for the great news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember dear Arwen that although y our English teacher might be the most wonderful person, he or she is just a person with biases and feelings that may or may not be shared with others.
I always smile when I remember what was written about Fred Astaire, a 1920's,30's whatever superb dancer. The person that interviewed him for something said, unattractive, can't dance.
He went on to be considered just about the best dancer of his era.
Congratulations and keep writing. Smile Smilie
