1. Soldier 3: *scratches neck* “y’all got any more of those green skeletons?”

  2. Oh my god, I know no one wants lotr remake, but what about a parody where the main characters are background actors.

  3. It’s funny but that was a suicide mission

    Edit: I agree, shield wall makes sense but I think he was trying to provoke Sauron as much as possible. It’s not enough to draw the armies out, you have to make sure that the eye is constantly watching you.

  4. In the book this scene is quite different with the battle area being a swamp and the troops positioning on multiple hills and waiting for the sauron army to charge them. I don’t remember all the details as it’s been quite a while since I’ve read the books so I hope I’m not chatting absolute shit.

  5. This would be true if his army wasn’t gripped by fear, that would take the heart of me!

    A day may come when the courage of men fails,
    when we forsake our friends
    and break all bonds of fellowship,
    but it is not this day.

    An hour of wolves and shattered shields,
    when the age of men comes crashing down,
    but it is not this day!

    Today we meme!

  6. Moving closer to the wall would just allow archers to shoot down into them. It wouldn’t be particularly smart.

  7. Dude he was trying to draw the forces of mordor out. This was not a battle to be won by tactics and swords and shields.

  8. That scene just brings a tear to my eye when I realize that everyone on that field(or, at least the fellowship) knew that they will likely die in that battle.

  9. In the books they were on some small hills surrounded by marshes, so even though they were surrounded they had a very good defensive position.

  10. This reminds me of that scene in Life of Brian when they’re all talking in the back as Jesus is preaching

  11. This just made me think of Life of Brian.

    Soldier #1: What was that?

    Soldier #2: I think it was ‘Blessed are the cheesemakers.’

    Soldier #1: Ahh, what’s so special about the cheesemakers?

    Soldier #2: Well, obviously, this is not meant to be taken literally. It refers to any manufacturers of dairy products.

  12. >What did he say? Far doodoo? Did he shit his pants?

    Haha, best part of the whole conversation

  13. Maybe they didn’t want to fight under the gate to avoid archers. Doesn’t explain why they weren’t attacked by archers anyway though.

    But listen the whole point was to give Frodo a distraction! And it worked!

  14. So we’re just giving out awards and thousands of upvotes for screenshots of YouTube comments now huh?

  15. Brilliant. Just absolutely brilliant. Got any of Gandalf fighting hand to hand when he could be using crazy magic spells?

  16. Good stuff man. But I’ve always wanted to see the battle written in the books. Setting up on the hills so they wouldn’t be surrounded. I think they split into two? One led by Gandalf, the other led by Aragorn.

  17. There’s also a scene in the two towers where the elves are doing serious damage with their bows, then Aragorn instructs them to charge into the orcs, I was like u wot m8.

  18. Tbf this might be the worst scene in the entire trilogy. What was his plan for if it took like another 3 minutes for the ring to be destroyed? And what was his plan if the earth didn’t literally swallow up all the baddies and leave every single goodie alive?

  19. I do always get the feeling that RotK ended filming mere moments before Peter Jackson began his mental descent into the fiery chasms of The Hobbit.

    ‘member when PJ wanted Aragorn to fight Sauron 1v1? I ‘member!

  20. I mean, why did not Sauron move orca out of the gate ahead of time?

    Orc 1: army of men is on a march, can we leave the gate and form up?

    Orc 2: Shh. Do not doubt the dark lord.
