Tolkien Week: The Battle of the Pelennor Fields

I find that no matter what I post for Tolkien Week, I always have to include this clip. It shows the Rohirrim at their finest, and it’s just plain epic. In my opinion, it’s one of the finest battle scenes ever filmed and has some of the most stirring fight music ever. It may be even more iconic than the “Amok Time” fight music from Star Trek, but we’ll have to wait several years yet to see if that happens.

    I cant agree with you more. The scene of the Ride of the Rohirrim has to be one of the most moving parts of the entire trilogy. When you hear the Horns of the Horse-lords you cant help getting chills, and you sit upright. It doesn’t matter how many times you watch the films, it never gets old. Thanks for putting it up

    Cheers,
