Re: Harry Potter is a surperior score

Hmm, well I just have a couple things to say on this subject. By the way, yes I was the immature-ish Lady Nilfalathiel going on about flute sheet music, which I haven't yet succeeded in finding. I've grown a great deal more mature since then, due to various heartbreaks and bouts of depression. Since then, I've taken up writing

1. Bringing up "A Beautiful Mind" perhaps isn't the best course of action, as I was absolutely enraged (and still am) in my LotR-obsessed state that it won "Best Picture" Unless you would like an army of people against you, you might want to rethink that.

2. I'm not 100% sure, but I believe someone else sang at the end of "The Bridge of Khazad-Dum" Please correct me if I am mistaken.

3. Each theme of each race really corresponded well. With the Hobbits, a simple and playful Celtic tune played visions of bright spring fields and freshly worked earth. In the various Elven themes, Lothlorien especially, bittersweetness echoed in the haunting and ethereal melodies. The bittersweetness of leaving something familiar, but knowing you'll be going off to a better place ("We still remember, we who dwell in this far land beneath the trees, thy starlight on the Western Seas" - Elven Hymn to Elbereth - sense the bittersweet presence?) The theme of Mordor is rustic and harsh, clearly sounding out the temperments of the dark forces. Everything is so woven that you can feel and envision the scenes flashing before your mind. You can tell what is happening. It makes the feelings and emotions so ...tangible.

Well, I'm sorry about ranting. I just get really emotional talking about Elves. I just can't shake of the incredible sadness.

The soundtrack to Harry Potter is enchanting in it's own way, but in my opinion, it doesn't compare to the majesty of The Lord of the Rings. It's grand and beautiful in such a way. Of course, I can be somewhat biased. Namaarie!
