Default Peter Jackson's The Lord of The Rings movies

I watched these in theaters when they released between 01-03. Found out my wife hadn't seen them and so we just spent ~4ish days going through the 3 movies in the extended edition.

Wow. All I can say is wow. Ok that's not true inc a bunch of words.I remember feeling amped to play EQ after watching the movies in theaters, but as an adult I was totally blown away. I don't think I paid enough attention to the little details and politics that were transpiring when I was a kid...because this time around it felt like the movie clicked with me on all levels.

My wife just started reading the books and I think I'll do so when she finishes them. Have you guys seen these movies? Or read the books? I think both were ahead of their time..I know so many people praise these books and movies but I truly cannot say enough good things. Multiple characters resonated with me and personal life experiences and multiple scenes connected with me on some sort of emotional or personal way. I highly recommend rewatching them if it's been a while.


TLDR: I'm blown away at the LOTR movies and wanna read the books now and play another 5k+hrs of EQ or LOTRO after watching.

Both me and a good friend came out of one of the LOTR movies (I forget which one) and we said "Yeah we should totally go play some Heroes of Might and Magic 3" [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Gandalf and Galadriel each ride an escort eagle and make short work of the nazghul while frodo safely flies to mordor

Dont even need to see a wood elf skateboard on a shield down some steps

R u implying Gandalf isn't a man? Lol.

Also Galadriel being one with the katana is a retconning. She was just a pretty elf in the books. There are also 9 nazghul. We never saw eagle versus flying thing power levels. We only saw them hovering and at low lvls looking for frodo and the ring. The one that dies was on the ground lol. They could be much more dangerous at altitude with some full airspeeds.

Like I get what ur saying buttttt it's not bulletproof.

eagles might have low hp but with wizard riders they are like reaper drones

ive also wondered about aragorn's ghost buddies

they were so ridiculously powerful, taking out whole fields of enemies and wisping thru warships of soldiers, like just 1 ghost could have fought basically everyone.

couldn't aragorn have mentioned them earlier at the ring council?

"If by my life or death I can protect you, I will, you have my sword, but I also know these ghost bros, they can infinitely kill anything that moves with magic, and they owe me a huge favor"

Ghost bros will be like my favor to u is to smoke 1 orc or pirate each. Gg gf <--- ghost bro to Aragorn. Legolas be like "lol" with his face on pillows. I seen a picture of someone's irl.

That said. Combining ghost plus eagles and making a treetop flyer beeline for the mnt. Would have probably worked fine. Especially seeing as the ghosts levitate.
