every single frame of this is gold
And then you remember that this shot is Legolas watching his best friend, or one of his best friends, being crushed by a troll, and you can pinpoint the moment he works out he won’t be able to reach Aragorn in time. The moment he realizes there’s virtually nothing he can do. Aragorn’s all on his own here. This is the moment Legolas thinks he’s going to have to watch another of his friends die, because he was too slow, because he couldn’t get there in time, because there was too much distance between them, because there was nothing he could do. The last time he had that lost look in his eyes was when he thought Aragorn had died after falling off the cliff.
*whispering* You remember that elves can die from heartbreak, and the only reason Legolas remains in Middle-earth after the War of the Ring is so he can spend more time with Aragorn, and be there when Aragorn dies.
*thumbs up* Excuse me while I go cry. Thank.
WOW CAN YOU NOT
Oh, and guys? Remember in the ORIGINAL cut of this before they changed the shot in CGI, Aragorn was not fighting a troll, he was fighting Sauron in physical form.
