22nd hour is passing when my eyes lied on beautiful creation called "The Return of the King". I can`t describe exactly what I feel now because thousands thoughts and feelings running through me so quickly that I`m about to explode. My eyes r teary,my nose red and my heart hurts. It`s THE END. I still cannot believe it but I`ve accepted it and I`m strangely calm. I realized all emotions which I was keeping inside but I wasn`t realized as I wanted. I just couldn`t cry so loud as I needed because I were sitting with lot ppl around me so I was kinda embarrassed if u know what I mean. Nevertheless my tears were streaming though all the movie. From sadness,happiness,relief. I had this very intense moment when Frodo and Sam sat at the top of Mouth of Doom and Frodo said to him that he is glad that Sam is with him at the end of all endings and I just burst with tears and literally bawl! I wanted to cling to them and cry so loud. When credits started to showing "Into the West" started and I was so angry that they didn`t let us listen to it and that lights went on suddenly when I was still crying so hard. This lady from movie theater stuff was watching with me so weirdly when I was walking through row of sits and I just wanted to get out from there as I couldn`t stay there to weep silently to Annie`s song. When I get out from the theater I thought I`m gonna faint. I was dizzy and the world was spinning. Luckily I felt fresh breeze of winter wind which stopped me from falling down. All the way home my sister was holding my arm as she said from slipping on iced streets and I was appreciating it because I wanted to somebody to hold me or hug me. Although it was darn called in the movie theater I wasn`t cold at all. I felt hot! Through ROTK I was shivering,my hearts was beating madly and I was breathing fast! I couldn`t feel differently! I just couldn`t...
I won`t say which scene or moment was my favorite because I don`t have any. Every sequence of scenes was different. Had its own powerful meaning and utter beauty. Although I must say that scenes of Frodo and Sam was dearest to my heart I truly loved whole movie!!! ROTK is definitely my favorite part from whole Tolkien`s trilogy and the best!!! It`s magnificent and very beautiful piece of art! PJ,cast and other members of crew brought to life,wonderful and magical story of dreadful journey full of hope and devotion of ppl who`s task was to destroy The One Ring and bring peace to Middle-Earth,which for many was it impossible thing to do. What was the key to the door of success? I think on this question nobody will answer explicitly. I think it was enormous effort,devotion,love and passion of ppl involved with this project from the beginning. Especially PJ. Undertaking of adaptation of LOTR required amazing bravery from PJ and everyone. All who were working on the movie,especially actors and director came a exhausting journey not only on the screen but also inside each of them while filming. They shared ups,downs,tears,joy,sadness,blood,sweat and any difficulties. All bonds were growing up between actors and crew while time passing time for them like it was passing in the movie. Everything what was happening on the screen,whole journey had paralleled place in reality. Emotions,words were real and honest. Every actor felt them very deeply. They were running right through them that`s why all of them were so wonderful on the screen. The story have taken them with itself and I joined to the fellowship last night to go and carry The Ring with Frodo and Sam.
Sean was brilliant as Samwise. It was a role of his life and I think as well for the rest of cast their own roles were too. He was amazing when breathlessly I was watching him fighting for his beloved Frodo. He deserved for AT LEAST for Oscar nomination,DAMNIT!!!! All his emotions was so true and were beaming from the screen and I was feeling them deep inside. I`m so happy that Sean gathered all those great awards for his performance!!! Elijah was wonderful. I realized why I love him as an actor. He portreted Frodo beautifully!!! His face and eyes were speaking for him. He wouldn`t have to say a word and I would understand everything what he was feeling or wanted to say. Fantastic expression of his face and look... I love it so so so much...
He WAS Frodo. Like Viggo WAS Aragorn. Ian WAS Gandalf. Dommie was Merry. Billy WAS Pippin. They all did magnificent job. They were chosen to become those characters. I CAN`T imagine OTHER actors playing our dear characters! I was happy to see Miranda as Eowyn. She was excellent! She blew me out in the scene with Nazgul! I almost got up from the seat and screamed "GO EOWYN!" (lmao) when she cut off a head of a beast. I whispered to my sister "She`s good!" and she winked at me hehehe ;) I totally fell in love with scene when Aragorn kneed in front of hobbits and then all who were there did the same. It was so beautiful and touching!!! And then Frodo`s face... So innocent,so unaware so modest... Masterpiece...
I could count all those scenes days and nights as I said that I loved whole movie and I don`t have my favorite scene.. Oh,what a fit elf Legolas is,isn`t he? *wink* He looked dreamy in his silky-velvet gown. Hilarious Gimli! Ah.. what LOTR would be without him? hehe *happy sigh* I was very positively surprised by Billy as Pippin. Finally that young lad had a chance to show his acting skills! I always had a feeling that he was behind others characters. From enamored in ales and pipe weed hobbit who always was getting others in troubles changed into a courageous and loyal man wasn`t afraid to fight for Frodo and his friends despite of fear and great confusion. Billy showed it perfectly. Again a saying "Eyes r the mirror of soul" was confirmed here. I was reading from Pippin`s face like from open book. So meaningful,so powerful. Out-standing!
Lord of the Rings changed my life completely. Thanks to my love and interested in Tolkien`s work I found my beloved soul mate,made a friends of my life and met many,many wonderful ppl!!! It gave my hope,faith, a belief in love, friendship,myself,in life,ppl,world and made me realize many things and understand some important matters.
LOTR it`s not only a movie,a pure entertainment. It`s life,chance,a new beginning,like a feeling after long rain, a world where anyone can come and find a place,sit close to fireplace with a cup of hot lemon tea in hands and never feel alone again.
Am I over interpreting it? Maybe. Am I obsessed? Possible. Do I haven`t got a life and try to find a sense and meaning where it isn`t any? I don`t think so. LOTR help me find it in my life when I thought it`s lost irreversible.
Let ppl think what they want about me and LOTR. Laugh. Point fingers at me. Call me crazy. I DON`T CARE! I REALLY DON`T CARE! NOT ANYMORE...
Although the journey of the Ring finished on the silver screen (I`m praying for 'Hobbit'!!!!) it will keep going in my heart as well in hearts of all brilliant LOTR fans. If a moment will come that darkness will threat to the land of Middle-Earth I`ll grab my sword of imagination and stand arm in arm with my favorite heroes and I`ll fight. (Yes I`m crazy! Isn`t beautiful?)
Many things r coming to my mind how I could express my gratitude for making this last 3 years the best in my life. I hope that lots more that kind of years r waiting for u all my precious LOTR ppl. :) I wish u more that kind of roles or your life and all the best blessings from above.
Now 24rd hour is passing since I saw The Return of The King...
PJ,Fran,Philippa,Elijah,Ian,Viggo,Sean,Dom,Billy,Barry,Howard,Enya,Annie,all ppl who were involved in any way with this magnificent project for your love,passion,faith and courage making this story charmed in books come alive...
