Lots of damn fluff in the first 5 minutes but then the deep dive into themes is worth it. I never knew the name of the "weakness and redemption" theme.  I never knew there were names for all various ring and hobbit themes.  Can't stand how this guy pronounces place-names.  Not one of them is right.

Well, he says Middle-earth alright.

Hol' up! "Lothorien"? "Saw-ron"?

Well, then he says Isengard fine, and Mordor and such. A little harsh to say that he pronounces nothing quite right.

Anyway, I skipped the first five minutes, and I think it's a pretty neat video. I like especially hearing what the different instruments are.

I remember someone on here didn't like leit-motif, but I think it's great stuff. Smile

Well he gets the obvious ones right. But he's tripping over his feet in eagerness to mangle Osgiliath, Cirith Ungol, and even as you point out Lothlorien.

Sadly, this guys voice irritates me a tad but, I do love the music to these films a lot.

Yes, he needs lessons in elocution.

I don't mind his voice or elocution, just his pronunciation of half the names.

Ah, but pronunciation is part of elocution. Integral, even.

I don't mean to nitpick though.

If somebody is intentionally pronouncing something wrong, it's not elocution, it's not even a mistake. Don't get clarity of pronunciation mixed up with incorrect pronunciation.

Not a Tolkien song, but not bad.

Since this thread is reactivated I may as well take the opportunity to respond to Forest's questions with an example.

Let's say you have only read the word "elite" but never brought it up in conversation. When you do, you pronounce it "ee-light", producing much mirth. This is not an elocution problem, it's simply a mistake of pronunciation. Poor elocution is when you know how a word should sound, but do not produce it with clarity or in a way that projects. Come to think of it, I think there's a tendency to mistake 'enunciation' (which is elocution) with 'pronunciation'.
