To celebrate the release of a Middle Earth 6 Film collection this week,  I’m sharing my Middle-Earth Epic Moments!


Gollum – The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey

I was going to say a specific scene for Gollum, but in honesty I couldn’t decide which one I like best, as he’s such an incredible character! The scene in The Hobbit, Unexpected Journey is short, but marvellous, and gives a wonderful back story for the character. So, I guess if I had to choose just one scene for Gollum, it’d have to be that.


You Shall Not Pass!” Gandalf – Fellowship of the Ring

This phrase has become something which is said commonly, even by those who haven’t seen the film. Let’s be honest, the death of Gandalf has to be one of THE most epic Middle Earth moments. Gandalf defends a bridge, enabling the fellowship to make a safe get away. The battle with Balrog is dramatic, and Gandalf delivers the “You Shall Not Pass!” with his sword and staff in the air. It’s one of those moments which although you know what happens next, you want to watch time and time again.


“I can’t carry it for you, but I can carry you..” Lord of the Rings – Return of the King

Return of the King sees the final battle for Middle-Earth, Frodo and Sam continue their journey towards Mount Doom.

This is perhaps my top Middle Earth epic moment, it’s an emotional one. Frodo collapses, exhausted as he and Sam are trying to climb the slopes of .. Sam attempts to offer comfort, by talking to Frodo about their home – the Shire. Realising Frodo is unable to continue their journey unaided, Sam vows to carry Frodo. I find this such a powerful scene, as it shows even those with great strength need help from their friends sometimes.
