SCOD - "Forth Eorlingas!!" Can't Post

Original image here.

1. How many in the audience do you suppose knew what “Forth Eorlingas” meant? Should the writers have changed it to something else, like say ”Charge!!”, or ”Leeeroy Jennnkins!!", or, to honor Tolkien’s favorite language, “Tulta munille!!”?

2. Most of the extras were females. How many Dernhelms can you pick out?

3. How is the charge of the Rohirrim similar/dissimilar to Faramir’s charge?

4. Any other thoughts?

Bonus questions:

The climax of the film The Lighthorsemen (1987) is the presumably suicidal charge of the 4th and 12th Australian Light Horse Regiments against Turkish trenches and artillery at the Battle of Beersheba on 31 October 1917.

What do you suppose motivates an otherwise rational individual to participate in an obviously suicidal cavalry charge?

Would Peter Phelps make a good Bilbo?

Brothers, sisters,
I was Elf once.
We danced together
Under the Two Trees.
We sang as the soft gold of Laurelin
And the bright silver of Telperion,
Brought forth the dawn of the world.
Then I was taken.

Brothers, sisters,
In my torment I kept faith,
And I waited.
But you never came.
And when I returned you drew sword,
And when I called your names you drew bow.
Was my Eldar beauty all,
And my soul nothing?

So be it.
I will return your hatred,
And I am hungry.
