Three main action sequences for DOS Can't Post

Iīm constantly trying to classify things, and turns out I realized there are 3 main action sequences in each movie. By action sequences I mean battles in which somebody eventually dies (good or evil), usually a first one which doesnīt adds much to the plot, a middle one which stops evil temporarily and a final one which ends a threat. So for example Weathertop wouldnīt count. They would be:

FOTR: Last Alliance, Balinīs Tomb, Amon Hen
TT: wargs, Helmīs Deep, Last march of the Ents
ROTK: Osgiliath, Minas Tirith, Fields of Pelennor
UJ: Azanulbizar, trolls, Goblintown

In my mind, Pelennor and Minas Tirith are two separate battles, filmed in different styles and shown at different times(one, then the other), while Black Gate was not shown much. I mean, Pelennor alone is much bigger than Amon Hen.

Having said this, the obvious question is: what are the 3 main for DOS?

For starters, we have Smaug. He could die at the end, after a big battle. The problem is that I donīt know how PJ is going to represent the battle. He could pull out some scenes of dwarves trying to get on the dragon (hope not) and eventually the arrow. Soldiers running around, some screams, houses on fire... To portray a dragon attack is harder than it sounds. That is why I think he might, just might, introduce some orcs and stuff attacking Laketown, Helmīs Deep style. And the dessert would be the dragon, so to speak.

Bear in mind this is just pure speculation. Even if Smaug is one of the three, there are still two left. Most of us have seen the sneak peek, so we have seen the elves battling the orcs in Mirkwood. That could be one, I saw quite a bit of stunts. It could be the introductory one. Spiders are not likely, since I expect the battle to be shorter than elves vs orcs.

Finally, what could be the third one? Well, there has been a lot of talk about Dol Guldur, but the thing is, that would leave us without a potential battle in TABA. We only know of the five armiesībattle, so it is a bit unlikely.

However they could divide the battle of Dol Guldur in two parts. Maybe Dol Guldur goes in the offensive in this movie, or maybe itīs just the white council attacking and failing (Galadriel carrying Gandalf) and in the next movie they could introduce the real battle.

Of course, this is all assuming there are just three main battles. Angelic
