The LOTR Caption Contest CXCIX Can't Post

We've covered a lot of territory in Middle-earth since the inestimable Black Fox started us on this journey. Cheers, Foxy! Smile And cheers to you, too, Alveric!

This particular Gondorian beacon guard is actually a man of many talents. Still rivers run deep. What could he be contemplating of his past, present or future in this shot?

in general [In reply to] Can't Post

Movie Gondorians are portrayed as incompetent idiots. Incompetent idiot extras, since not one gets a speaking part other than Denethor and his sons.* No common man, no Beregond or The Boys In Charlie Company or Ioreth or anyone- just cannon-fodder, and screaming panicky civilians (who shouldn't be there anyway.)

But I guess it makes sense that Gondorian troops have all the substance of videogame mooks, since bundles of pixels are the only people you could get up there to light those absurd mountaintop beacons!

*And Faramir's deputy, Captain Obvious.

The final insult [In reply to] Can't Post

after erasing the heroic "out-companies" of Forlong and Imrahil, and the twins who took down the Mumakil suicidally but realistically (as opposed to movie-Rohirrim charging them with horses(!), is that the "great valour" of the men of Lebennin that turn the tide of battle are dropped in favor of Green Scrubbing Bubbles, a climax to the great Battle of the Pelennor Fields as un-compelling as Mass Effect 3's Instagram-filter ending.
