emotion   Wednesday, March 24, 2004 (2:24 a.m.) 

what part of the rotk was everyone's most musically emotional part? I must say I have never felt so moved by a film as i was during the "lighting of the beacons" (The White Tree). my mouth was open, literally. and i nearly fell out of my chair (not literally, but figuratively).
anyway, anybody else have a particular moment that sticks out too you in the rotk, particulary associated to the music.

The most emotional musical moment for me was when Gandalf says goodbye to the hobbits in the harbour. That scene is the only place I cry in the movie. It is a really sad scene.
The entering of Gandalf and Pippin to Minas Tirith was incredible with the main theme. I also didn't expect that.

I agree with all of your comments but for me the adrenalin (sorry I can't spell) rush was near the end in the big battle scene with the wraiths on wings etc. the music ther is just amazing an no other compsoer could have done half as good a job as Howard has

A lot of the parts were extremely emotional with the music too me, and yes the white tree is one of them but...While the elves are reforging the sword..the music going with that scene is just awesome and amazing. Plus the part where Aragorn receives the sword from Elrond. Lots of good parts in the movie. The part where Pippin rode to Minas Tirith with Gandalf from Edoras..the music in there went with it well. Excellent clarinet solo lol ..And the part where Rohan shows up to Gondor's aid and they all start shouting "death" (at least I think that's what they were shouting). Kick butt music and emotion.

I especially loved the part where Gandalf and Pippin are riding to Minas Tirith and they start playing the Minas Tirith theme and it's just blasting through the speakers and it ends while showing the top of the city in the sunlight with the fields below looking so far away. It was just so incredible and was something I didn't expect. Hehe riding through the city dodging people while the main theme's going on...it was great.

I really liked the part where the camera sweeps over the top of the citadel full of people and the music swells like crazy. Then a few minutes later Aragorn sings his elvish and the striking moment to me, is when they play the full blown shire theme while everyone's bowing to the hobbits. It was a very emotional part to me and I thought it was wonderful.

I agree. The most emotional part was when everyone bowed to the hobbits and the camara paned through all of the people and the music swelled. I almost has tears down my eyes!

I completely agree..... that scene with Aragorn's Coronation was sooo pretty and the music was really emotional too. I love the how the petals fall and the music when you first see Arwen. It's so simple, but it just captures the moment, if you know what I mean. Oh, and the part where they bow down to the Hobbits almost brought tears to my ears, and the Hobbit music theme has never been so great!!! Another part where I thought the music was very emotional was when Frodo and Sam are picked up by the eagles... it really adds feeling to the scene, which was done wonderfully. And the music they play when Theoden is talking to his troops before they enter the battle. I could go on forever!! The music is just sooo good!!

I'd have to agree with all the prior posts. The sweeping Gondor theme as they ascend the city, the lighting of the beacons in the White Tree, and yes! the forging of Anduril were pieces that gave me goosebumps. But one piece not mentioned that really held me on the edge of my seat, especially during the movie, was The End of All Things. Everything here erupts into a frenzy to destroy the thing, and you have to watch in anguish over the struggle of not only the ring, but watching the rest of the fellowship face an almost emminent doom. (haha, mount doom double meaning) Definitely had my adrenaline going, EVEN though I still knew what was going to happen. Great music.

And don't forget the music during, "The strawberries, Mr. Frodo. Remember the taste of strawberries?" Oh man, I wanna go and see this thing again!

The entire film and music is incredible, but I was very moved by the part when Arwen is set to leave middle earth, and she sees her son. The cue "Twilight and Shadow" plays in the background (probably one of the most beatiful cues for the entire movie)...
The scene goes on into almost a great symphonic statement, and Arwen rides back to rivendell, and we hear a short statement of the Evenstar music.... ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!

Other scenes I love, is when Gandalf is riding out from Minas Tirith to help the riders being pursued by the Nazgul. And the part at the end, when we hear a vocal cue, when the eagles are flying scouting for frodo and sam!

And many more parts, I just absolutely LOVE this score...
What did Mr. Shore take before he started on this journey? I'm not so impressed by his previous works, but his work for the LOTR trilogy is perfect, I wouldn't have any other composer do it. And Mr. Shore is now my favorite composer
