Concerning the Eagles:

If you read one of Tolkien's books (I forgot which one but when I read it I was like "so THAT'S why!") it mentions how the eagles are "too pure" to carry, or be near to, the ring. As in they would literally be destroyed, because they were created by the Valar themselves to serve as protectors of Middle Earth.

And the Nazgul would rip the **** out of them pretty sure, too.

But in The Hobbit the eagles carry Bilbo on their backs when he has the ring in his pocket (the eagles saved him, Gandalf and the drawfs from a fiery death at the hands of the orcs).
The eagles don't carry Frodo to mount Doom simple because they are a independent race and the matter doesn't concern them, also they'll get attacked by the Nazgul dragons.

Sorry for 3 notifications; I accidentally all my sentences twice.

1) When they carry Bilbo the ring is weak; it's been lost for almost 3 millenia. However as Sauron's hunger for the ring grew so did its potency. In addition they could handle a trip from the misty mountains to a somewhat nearby place but on an extended journey (even with short breaks) from Rivendell to Mordor? No.
2) Yup. They're independent and don't care as much as the humans.
3) In the books it's said that even as the eagles were sent in as a distraction they were confronted by enough wyrms that 3 extra wyrms were left over to chase down frodo once Sauron saw specifically where they were. So flying is a no-go.

wait....what if we tie a REAAALLLY long string to the ring....like miles long, and tie the other end to the eagle! we get a bunch of his eagle buddies to go in and **** up the Narzguls. Aaragon then goes to get that massive ghost army and have them attack mordor instead, kill all orcs, destroy the ring. **** bitches get money.

THAT was pretty damn funny. Even so, the amount of Fell Beasts, and the fact that in the book, the army of the dead didn't help in the Pelenore fields, they only helped acquire the boats.

Anakin was like a son to Obi-wan, and he just couldn't bring himself to kill him.
Plus, Jedi don't believe in killing their prisoners.

But they seem to believe in walking casually away from them as they lay not quite dead by a river of magma. Not a very good arrest, that.

Star Wars = The prophecy was that Anakin/Vader kills the Emperor. Which did happen later in since he lived through the volcano crap

Hangover = They knew it was their bed but they thought they through it out the window. It until they realized that was not possible, did they know that they must have put it there by hand

actually that wasn't the prophecy. The prophecy portend someone to bring balance back to the force. They knew Anakin had something to do with the prophecy. What they didn't know was that if Anakin choose the dark side which he did his kids would bring the balance to the force.

Wrong. Anakin was the Prophecy. That is why Obi Wan Kanobi yells, "YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE!" or something along those lines. Anakin turned out to be the chosen one because he killed the Emperor

no the prophecy was that there would be one to bring balance to the force

It was the prophecy of the chosen one. It has been said that a being would be born purely of the force and that jedi would bring balance and destroy the sith. Yoda says it could have been misread because Anakin was believed to be the chosen one and due to his arrogant, cocky nature displayed traits not like that of the jedi and ultimately fell to the sith.

it was never fully stated what the prophecy was only that he would bring balance to the force. Anakin was referred to at the chosen one because they believed it was to be him but it wasn't. I read all the books and watched movies and did my research

Well maybe you are right on the Prophesy saying that 'someone' will be. But Anakin DID turn out to be the chosen one since HE killed the Emperor

Why? Darth Vader wasn't the problem. The Emperor was. Besides, Vader died on his own from wounds from being electrocuted.

Hangover = They were retarded, skyscrapers never have windows that open beyond the first or second floor for looks, they should've been able to figure out that the windows don't open if they spent a few seconds thinking(which they had a lot of time for).

An oversight in the story, the writers ****** up, don't defend their mistake it's still a good and funny movie but the writers made an oversight and no-one ignoring or changing facts will make it any better.

Gladiator=He ended up sending 4 praetorians, bodyguards to the Emperor himself, so it's not like they were simpleton soldiers.
Not sure if OP even saw some of these movies
