A Fresh Eye on the Fellowship: Chapter 17 - Looking at LOTR from a different point of view

Can anybody hear "Duel Of The Fates" playing in the background?
Still inside Moria and besieged by Orcs, Gandalf leads the Fellowship to the Gates of Moria across "The Bridge of Khazad-dûm." Before the Orcs attack we learn that Frodo seems to hear them when the others do not. Could this be another property of the Ring? There is no time to find out as the Orcs attack with the help of a Balrog. It also Gandalf’s last stand…at least for now.

Since the chapter was fairly short, I can only make so many comments on it. The battle with the Balrog wasn’t as long as I remembered it to be. Again, this could be the result of the cartoon. However, I must say that in the movie, I hope that the scene is at least ten minutes long. With today’s special effects technology, they could make this battle out to be an epic confrontation between the wizard and the creature of Sauron. I would really like to hear your opinions on this and also if anyone knows how the scene goes down to let me know.

As a final word, or two…GANDALF ROCKS!!!

Just some food for thought,
