Thrilling [In reply to] Can't Post

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!!”?
Movie firster here, I heard "Forth ---- something" and though I couldn't make out the second word, it wasn't difficult to fill in the blanks for myself and figure out it referred to some ancient way these people referred to themselves.
This type of thing happened many times throughout first watching the trilogy, there were references to names or places or events that were not explained, but here is where the whole sort of mystique about LOTR came in, because even though *I* didn't know what they meant, I knew that there was a huge, huge backstory and world in this story and I was certain they did mean something, and so instead of it being confusing or annoying, it gave it a lot of depth and was very intriguing.

2. Most of the extras were females. How many Dernhelms can you pick out?
My favorite is the one that gets a brief special focus later in the charge (a bit after Eomer's moment), riding h** for leather, hair streaming in the wind, with weapon raised and just looking like they're having the best time of their life Smile. There should be a "FIGWIT" for that rider.

3. How is the charge of the Rohirrim similar/dissimilar to Faramir’s charge?
Even though they're screaming "Death" here, there was still some hope of survival. I got no sense of hope whatsoever in Faramir's ride out.
