This is a lord of the rings thread. Not any war/battle scenes from movies

I would say personally Helms Deep comes at 1st place, the scenes of harrowing desperation towards the end just made it such an emotional experience as well as alot of entertaining action. Then the cavalry charge at the end when Theoden is forgiven my Eomer who charges down to save his king once more Amon hen comes at a second for similar reasons, almost brought a tear to the eyes when the fellowship had been broken.

Agarwaen The Nírnaeth Arnediad. Reading the sheer volumes of participants (have a look online) just blew me away. Also at the end when Húrin grabs a huge Orc chieftain's axe and decimates 70 of Morgoth's best on his own before being captured. Epic!!

HelbrechtBT It has to be Sam VS Shelob. Such an epic david and golaith battle showing the epicness that is Samwise.

If you haven't read the book theres a chapter where all these Americans in Battle Suits, guess you could compare it to power armor but requireing a huge power source. Basically they come out of this lake with a holographic hydra projected around them while thier commander is blareing "The Imagrant Song" and they just start killing every alien in site (Polseen). The whole book is just Epic, as well as the series.

I also have to put all the battles in "Armor" as they are pretty epic too.
Read well you did not........

But i would say the Witch King Bitch Slapping gandalf in the cut scene...just because its funny to see a hobbit almost get blown off a tower....

You realise this is the LOTR section, right?

For me, almost anything from the simirillion, Or the Battle of unnumbered tears. On film, most likely Helm's Deep.

LordOfAbsolution seeing how two of my favourite armies are Uruk-Hai and Rohan I have to say the entire battle of helms deeps just the grittiness of the landscape and the rain pounding off the Uruk-Hai armour its awesome.

and like Ingensus the Rohirrim charge at pelannor fields, I always feel awe struck when I see that, no matter how many times I watch it.

Brother Arnold For me it's gotta be the battle of Pelennor Fields. I mean, it had everything: A siege, flaming catapults, a giant wolf-shaped battering ram, Gandalf telling the soldiers of Minas Tirith that they must hold their ground no matter what comes through the door a second before three very angry Mordor Trolls wearing very spikey armour bust through, a massed cavalry charge, (with awesome, fitting music in the background, even without Amon Amarth) a dragon, giant elephants with four tusks, really awesome moves from the heroes to bring down said elephants, (Legolas on the haldar, the shot into the Beastmaster which takes down two Mumakil, Eowyn slitting the ankles of one) ghosts, and pretty much everything else.
Helm's Deep is a close second though, tying with the Last March of the Ents.
Moria, Shelob and Amon Hen didn't actually have the whole "two massive armies" thing going for them, so they lost a bit there. If a company of Wood Elves and/or Galadhrim had been escorting the Fellowship, then it would be pretty cool because of the whole woodland fighting part of it.
