One does not simply walk into Mordor.... Can't Post

...Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs." - Boromir in Rivendell (Council of Elrond)

When I first watched FOTR I tried to imagine what "more than just orcs" meant. Especially after Gandalfs similar quote after entering Moria "There are older and fouler things than orcs in the deep places of the world". We just saw the Watcher in the Water. And later we saw the Balrog. Two very old and evil creatures and a Cave Troll too. After that I tried to think of what evil creatures could possibly guard the Black Gates of Mordor the Land of Shadow and Evil?
In TTT we got to see them... a bunch of orcs and two trolls and a small army of Easterlings. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed.
In ROTK we returned to the Black Gate. A new hope. Perhaps more than last time? And different things than on the Battle of Minas Tirith? Not really. 10.000 orcs, one or two trolls, a black Numenorean, 8 wraith on wings... yes. After Boromirs famous sentence I expected "more than just orcs (and trolls)".

WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?



"There is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power."
