Lord of the Rings Epic Scenes That Move Us Every Time

Lord of the Rings is the most epic, breathtaking and intense trilogy in film history. director Peter Jackson has brought the most awe-inspiring fight scenes to life and mastered every single shot on screen. Howard ShoreThe score of is also a key element in the splendor of this trilogy. The emotion with which we watch these movies every time proves how great and effective they are. Difficult decisions had to be made, but we collected the best seven moments Lord of the Rings Trilogy that gives us goosebumps every time.

Gandalf vs Balrog

You shall not pass!” Who doesn’t get goose bumps when Gandalf shouts these words to the Balrog on the bridge of Khazad-dûm? Our ring-bearer and his companions just faced a battle with hundreds of orcs, a troll, and now a balrog, “a demon of the old world.” The balrog in itself is absolutely terrifying, but if gandalf is left on the bridge of khazad -dûm alone fight against it, then the goosebumps begin. Gandalf falls down the bridge and after his famous “Run/Fly, you fools!” the rending score carried by the singer Aivale Cole slowly builds as Frodo’s heartbreaking scream echoes through Moria. Adding to the haunting score is the slow-motion of the Fellowship leaving Moria as a hail of arrows descends on them, adding to the seriousness of the moment.


Flight to the Ford

“If you want it, come and claim it!” These are the words Arwen utters as she faces the Nazgûl in the river while holding Frodo on her horse. The Flight to the Ford scene is such an impressive part of this film, but Arwen doesn’t get enough credit for her only action scene in the trilogy. She is indeed an excellent rider, as she told Aragorn. We don’t see the Nazgûl right away. We first see Arwen riding through the forest as fast as she can, scratching her cheek on the trees (always a nasty moment for fans). Within a few seconds we can sense the threat is coming. The scene is filmed behind the trees where we can hear the riders scraping against the branches. Arwen is surrounded by eight horsemen trying to reach Frodo. Inside as always Lord of the Rings trilogy, the soundtrack brings more drama and depth to the scenes. Here Shore uses a heavy crescendo, a somber chorus, brass and percussion, which are all the elements you need to create an epic score for an even more epic scene.

The Battle of Helm’s Deep

‘This is how it begins,’‘ says Theoden. One of the most epic scenes of The two Towers is definitely the setup for the Battle of Helm’s Deep. It will give you chills every time. This scene has a slow beginning, even quiet, where we hear the thunder, the enemy marching, and then it finally starts to rain. We see children crying in the cave, which adds even more depth to it because we are reminded of what it is about. It’s the very definition of the calm before the storm. The scene reaches its climax as Théoden’s famous quotation is supported by heavy percussion behind him and the brass repeat the Battle of the Hornburg theme. The cinematography of this scene is incredible: the arrows fly around Aragorn, the enemy’s ladders fan out against the walls and the screams echo into the night. Everything in this scene is perfectly timed and choreographed.

Next Eorlingas

For death and glory!’‘ Théoden definitely has some of the most epic lines in this trilogy. His decision to ride out with Aragorn and his men is supported by the slow singing of a choir and singer Ben Del Maestro singing the theme ‘Forth Eorlingas’. Finally, just when we thought this movie couldn’t be more epic, we see Gandalf standing on the hill and facing Aragorn and the enemies at dawn. The Rohirrim, led by Éomer, appear behind him. In movies, the arrival of help during a battle scene is always very moving, but Peter Jackson took this recurring theme to another level.” He gave us the incredible charge of the horsemen, which ended with perfect slow motion as the Rohirrim hit the enemies .

Sam’s monologue

Even the darkness must pass.” Sam delivers the most inspirational monologue of this trilogy right after Frodo almost killed him The two Towers. He understands why he did this, he knows the burden Frodo carries. This voiceover of Sam’s monologue plays as we watch the Uruk-hai leave the battlefield as Théoden yells, “Victory!” So yes, Sam’s speech is an omen that the good guys will triumph, even if at that moment he feels they won’t. As he speaks, the theme of the Shire is beautifully taken up as a reminder that a great world is still possible. Even Gollum is touched by those powerful words, and for a moment it looks like he might be able to remember his life before the Ring. Sam is not a soldier. He is a hobbit, a gardener who knows the value of life and that it is worth fighting for.

The Battle of the Pelennor Fields

“ARise, rise, Rider of Théoden!” Théoden surprises us once again with a stirring speech. With this scene, Peter Jackson proved that he is the master of fight scene construction. The timing and pacing that creates the power of a fight scene is critical. Speeches are always part of these pivotal scenes, largely because they are made to encourage men who know they are likely to die. Also, Shore’s music is a crucial part of the immensity of a scene like this. As Théoden encourages his riders, the Rohan theme is played in the background as thousands of riders cry out for death. They keep charging even if the enemy is shooting at them. You won’t stop. You are powerful. Death is a small price to pay when you know what’s at stake in this battle.

Aragorn’s Speech at the Black Gate

“I challenge you, men of the West!”. Yes, the king has returned. Aragorn also has his stunning speaking moment. The Battle of the Black Gate is crucial. Aragorn and his friends believe Frodo and Sam are dead. They are now just a few hundred against thousands of enemies literally circling them. Finally, a deep silence fell on our screens as Aragorn took a few steps forward and faced the Eye of Sauron. He turns around, looks at his friends with tears in his eyes:”For Frodo” he says (”For Frodo AND Sam” would have been great but Aragorn is about to die so we can forgive him). There is one more element to appreciate in this scene: after Aragorn starts running towards the enemy, Pippin and Merry are the first to follow him. Once again this moment proves the courage of the hobbits. They are now fighting for their friends Frodo and Sam who they have known all their lives.
