iMAGEine this!

Because I had already written my “Friday Fictioneers” story of the week, I didn’t add this one in.  But, I realized here was my chance to use my favorite scene in almost all of moviedom and I had to take it.  I hope the Goddess of Flash Fiction can forgive me.

Jill and Sam skipped down the path, ignoring the “Do Not Pass” sign standing on sticks.

Around the bend was a rocky bridge between the mountains.  It was foggy there.

As they crossed, a group came into view.  The tallest, a bearded man in a flowing robe stepped forward and slammed a walking stick into the ground.

“You Shall NOT Pass!” he yelled, lightning flicking from the stick.

“Sam!  Why are you red and have a tail,” Jill nearly screamed.

“Don’t know.  Also, can’t figure out why I wanna take a swing at the old geezer!”

Immortal Moments: Minutes in Movies

I am, as most know, a great lover of movies.  I enjoy movies of all types.  Yet, there are those moments when one line, one action holds me spellbound and I cannot ever forget that line nor that moment.

With the coming of “The Hobbit” and a resurgence of LOTR, I am reminded of one such moment.  It may, perhaps, be THE moment for my movie career, though others might not see it as such.  It is that one line in LOTR in which Gandalf is standing on a stone bridge and, in order to save his friends from the demon, refuses to yield and his words,

“You Shall Not Pass!”

will resonate me with deep emotion and near-tears.  It did so when I read it and, in one of the few times I have ever seen, it also invoked the same emotion in the film.  Today is a short speech for me, but I will share this moment with you.  Those of LOTR following already know the scene:  watch it for remembrance.  Those who do not follow LOTR: watch it and feel the thrill of someone truly sacrificing himself for friends and a cause.

How about you?  Is there such a moment in book or film that sends your heart sailing more than any other?

Namaste,

Scott

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
