You've captured everything wonderfully. Gollum does look very pitiable.

There actually IS a Gollum version of "I Dreamed A Dream" :[link] It's sort of funny and SOMEHOW still manages to be a sad song.

Fantastic effect, the suggestion is so powerful, yet it is a suggestion. Beautiful, masterful work.

Looks fantastic! I really dig the overall atmosphere, and the darkness of it (That scene bothered me in the movie how it looked like it was in daylight).

"I dreamed a dream" - that's really funny.

Awesome!

But to me I still think Bilbo should have put the poor guy out of his misery. That way in the long run, none of that crap would have happened.

Again, that's just me.

it works though, because in the end... Frodo couldn't bring himself to destroy the Ring. Technically speaiking, Gollum saved Middle-Earth!

True enough, it was the crazy little bastard who saved Middle Earth and of course Frodo took all the credit.
