Yeah "hurrr durrr egol r da very cool. dey don't be messin arond with da mortal on midle erf. dis i reed in smaliron"

***** shut the **** up. Obviously the story would have been **** if it was this easy, but there should have been more absolute on why it wouldn't work.
The obvious fact is, Tolkien forgot to consider it, or forgot to include it when he was beginning to write LOTR.

Had he had it on his mind, he would would have brought it up at some point early on, specifically at the Council of Elrond.

It would have went on like this: "Well Mithrandir, why don't we just fly the piece of **** to the mountain?" Gandalf: "***** that ain't gonna work because reason and reason and reason."

Tolkien was never very absolute or direct about anything. Just wasn't his style of writing or storytelling. The LotR books require a lot of reading between the lines and imagining things for yourself that aren't there. Same with the other stories set in that universe. I believe he was a strong advocate of the "The reader writes half the story"-principle, although he never mentioned it.

***** that aint gonna work because they're trying to sneak the ring in, and not get **** all over by the Nazgul and their Fell Beasts. If they were to fly the ring in, Sauron would see them coming and send reinforcements. They had to slip in a tiny group, you could say a fellowship, in order to go unnoticed. That's why they didn't knock down the Black Gates with a ******* army. It never would have worked.

Then again, it seems like the temptation is based on how close you are to the ring, so they could've carried the ring on a really long string. Hell, Gandalf had to almost touch it, just to get a response.

Yeah, except they couldn't get help then, because the armies of Gondor were bogged down, and the armies of Isengard (which was AT LEAST 10,000 Uruk-hai, on top of thousands of the Wild Men of the North) would have easily overrun Rohan without their king actually leading them (the elves actually didn't give a **** about helping, they were getting the hell out of Dodge) so without the help of Rohan, or the ghosts of Christmas Past, Gondor would have also fallen.

Oh, and don't forget that the orcs didn't die when the ring was destroyed. They lived on. They would have still finished the job in Gondor and the eagles that did go would be going on a suicide mission. The human kingdoms would still be torn apart, and everything else would have fallen.

So sure MAYBE they could destroy the ring, but the world would have been just as ******.

For some reason that was replied to me. Weird.

There's also the problem of corruption from the ring as you get closer to Mt Doom. It's why Isildur wouldn't throw the ring in during the first war.

If the eagles flew them to Mt Doom, Frodo wouldn't have thrown the ring in. Gollum was necessary as a sacrifice to destroy the ring.

I'm not sure they would've been easily killed by the Naz'gul as the eagles are sent by the gods themselves. They only help out Gandalf because of the debt that's owed etc., but the only reason he's friendly enough with them is because he's sent by the gods as well. The eagles and the five wizards are the only interference the gods have had with Middle Earth.

Also something they don't mention in the movies is that the lord of the eagles has better **** to do than fly people to mount doom. They're not under Gandalf's control, and watch over their land in the north, which at the time is under threat. The only reason they came to his aid in the hobbit was because they saw what was happening in their valley. Not because Gandalf whispered to a moth.

Copy pasted from tumblr, because I didn't feel like explaining all this **** again.

The Eagles are part of what’s called The Arda. Along with the Ents*, the Eagles are not effected by the tidings of the humans, the elves (to a degree, the elders of the first age imbued them with life - but the elders were essentially demigods in their own right) or the dwarves. They simply do not care. For why would they? The eagles have no agenda that is compromised by Sauron’s oppression.

The eagles are arrogant. Their pride would keep them from simply delivering people into Mordor like a taxi. Furthermore, Gwaihir (the Eagle lord**) is a Maia spirit (the same rank of Valar as Gandalf) and hence, after the fall of Morgoth, is bound by Valar law to not deceive fellow Valar; and hence would have had to tell Gwaihir that he has the one ring - there is nothing stopping the other eagles from just stealing the ring for their selves and coveting it at their eerie.

The only reason they help Gandalf is because Gwaihir owes him a favour. The only obligation the eagles have to help anyone else is to Radagast the Brown (of the Istari, the same order that Gandalf, pre-descent Saruman, and the two blue wizards Alatar and Pallando) because he basically gave Thorondor and the other eagles the rank of Maia, by essentially instructing the early Maia on how to morph into them. Gwaihir owed Gandalf a small favour, not winning the entire war.

The main reason that the eagles didn’t help more is this: The Maia (Minor Valar - the Valar are the LOTR Deities) are there to guide. Gandalf is a Maia, he is a teacher to the people of middle earth; and, just as a teacher doesn’t take your exams for you, he didn’t fight their fights for them. Gandalf was so powerful*** he was forbidden from challenging Sauron directly and, along with the other Istari, forbidden from dominating the people of middle earth. He could’ve stood outside the gates of Minas Tirith, farted and every orc there (including the Witch King of Angmar - his supposed equivalent) would have dropped dead. Same principle applies to Gwaihir, he can only guide, he couldn’t win the war for them.

*The ents only get involved because half of them have been exterminated by Saruman lawl.
**Strictly speaking, Gwaihir is the Windlord and Thorondor was the original Eagle Lord in the first age. But it’s third age now so, hey ho.
***Incidentally Gandalf, or Olorin The Wise as he was known before passing to Middle Earth was actually more powerful than Saruman (as stated by Manwe.) The only reason Saruman was head of the order was due to Gandalf’s modesty and the fact that Saruman and the then Gorthaur (Sauron) both studied under Aule. Hence he was more familiar with the types of weaponry that would be used against them.

Techincaly, there were more than 300 spartans, and there were also a few thousand athenians if i remember correctly.

With that many men, and with inferior persian troops just face-tanking a phanlanx, it is possible that the greeks could have held off the persians if they weren't outflanked.

Even if they wouldn't, does "phyrric" victory ring a bell? They would have probably lost so many men that they couldn't really push forward and take a city.

Well, in this case, the story is a bit more "true" than those ghost stories. The Battle of Thermopylae did take place, and it was fought by a small number of Greeks (a four digit number) against a huge Persian army (probably a six digit number), and the Greek army did manage to hold off the Persians for several days, which is a huge achievement.

So while the movie (and the comic it is based on) does take quite a few liberties with historical fact, there is a rather amazing core of truth to this whole story.

It's unrealistic only because Hollywood got a hold of it, the reason everything is larger than life and so deformed is because it was still early Earth, a lot of that stuff seen b the Spartans(Elephants, Rhinos, Gigantism) isn't something they were used to and the movie showed this by making them larger than life and as such 'scarier'.

The story is fairly accurate, though doesn't show the naval battles that took place with the navy from Athens, and the count of men is reduced significantly to keep with the theme of "300 Spartans" when in reality that was their final number to hold it while the others retreated. This is to you, and Ivoryhammer.

Actually, it's not like that because of Hollywood but because that is how Frank Miller decided to draw it.

Ok:
Everyone and their mother is explaining why LotR wouldn't work so I won't
I got nothing on Gladiator (I haven't seen it)
In 300 the whole reason they didn't let him in the platoon was because he couldn't hold his shield in a way that would protect himself and those next to him (the whole point in their formation) and he would have endangered himself and those around him if he had been allowed to help
Vega (Travolta's character) is supposed to be a moron with no gun safety. The whole basis of his character is that he's a dumb rookie who keeps making **** hard for Jules (Jackson's character) by doing dumb **** without properly thinking of what the dangers or consequences are
And in the Hangover: They were hungover you dumb ****. They'd gotten trashed and taken roofies, had a panic attack over the tiger in their room and the fact that their best friend was missing. They weren't thinking clearly and were freaked out by everything so their reaction is totally understandable

The Lord of the Rings one.    
   
Yeah, because it's a great idea to fly eagles over tens of thousands of orcs with bows, siege engines, catapults, ballistas etc. Also, flying past a massive horde of fell beasts, magic Nazgul and in direct sight of Sauron, whilst also flying through a cloud of volcanic ash and pyroclastic clouds (which have temps in the 1000's of degrees) to try and either land in front of the volcano at which point they would get slaughtered, or fly above it and drop it in, where they would just get burnt to death.
