It's smart to use a giant eagle to save Gandalf, but don't use the eagle to fly Frodo over Mount Doom and let him throw the Ring into the fire

For some reason everyone in Middle Earth is astounded by the beauty of the Elven queen in Lothlorien, but no one in the cinema is

For some reason the actor who plays Agent Smith and Lord Elrond, likes a role where he thinks that "human beings are weak"

    When you're fighting a gigantic demon, the Balrog, tell him of which councils you're a member of, even though he doesn't speak English

      When you're in Lothlorien, your voice starts to slow down immediately especially when you talk to the queen.

        It makes sense to make a scene about saying goodbye to a pony which isn't properly introduced in the first place.

        Aragorn - "He has been stabbed by a morgul blade, he will soon become a wraith like one of them." WAIT a hobbit wraith? Now that I would have loved to see.

          It makes sense that when Frodo puts on the Ring, Sauron immediately appears, however Bilbo can put it on with no sign of Sauron

            hey.,.i thought the same XD ...maybe because frodo is more evil inside than bilbo?

                When you're being chased by the Balrog and you find yourself on a bridge and a really small entrance where the Balrog could never go through, instead of just keep running, stand there and fight the Balrog even though you're gonna lose

                  Aragorn knows that you're not supposed to disturb the water at the entrance of Moria, yet he only mentions it after the water has already been disturbed.

                    The Orcs and goblins in Moria are not awakened by Gandalf's MagLite staff but they are by noise which could've been accidental as well.

                      After all, it's not like parts of the structure would fall in these "ruins" due to any age at all.

                    When you wear a mithril vest, it's not only impossible to be pierced, it also withholds the force of any stab.

                      Unless of course, it comes from a giant spider further into the adventure.

                    Having pointy ears, being clean & shooting a bow doesn't make you gay... the inferior male population that heard their girlfriend say "ohhh he's hot" does!

                      Even though Gandalf knows a Balrog lurks in Moria don't bother telling Frodo. Simply say "So be it" when Frodo chooses to go the road by Moria.

                        It might not be clever to light a fire in complete darkness when there are enemies all around you.

                            It's overreacting when a farmer tries to protect his goods by waving a scythe in the air, even though he has been robbed 3 times in a week.

                                    When there's little time left and you call for an urgent council, speak really slowly and don't lead the discussion, instead let everyone insult each other and speak when the other people are speaking too

                                          It makes sense that Gandalf doesn't ask help to all the other wizards in his council but only goes to the leader who betrays him

                                                    When you have doubt about which way you need to go, follow your nose.

                                                      When you're being chased by nine blind dudes with swords, put pillows on your beds so that when they stab in the bed, they think they killed you.

                                                      When you're pissed that a bum threw a knife in your leg, lick your own blood off of it and throw it back to him.
