There are these small moments in the LOTR trilogy that make me so happy. Well, come make me happy, some make me sad but they make me feel.
I was doing a re-listen of the soundtracks today and the song when the Fellowship is leaving Rivendell came on. Which I LOVE. The music starts out soft, and it sounds a little fragile, almost trembling. You see the Fellowship starting their journey and they’re walking across a bridge, then you see them walking with Rivendell in the background. As they’re doing this the music is getting juuuuust a little bit more intense, but still quiet. The shot goes to them walking across vast plains, there’s panoramic shots, beautiful scenery, all that good stuff. The music gets louder, quicker and I always get a slight anxious feeling, but an excited kind of anxious.
AND THEN IT HAPPENS. The Fellowship walks past those rocks and the music INTENSIFIES.
