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.
User avatar #42 to #21 - mdogwomb (07/26/2012) [-]
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.
#200 to #42 - anon (07/27/2012) [-]
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.

well they had to do one task to be freed in death, so have them kill orcs in mordor...nobody likes orcs. orcs dont like orcs
#102 to #21 - hihomoho (07/27/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #105 to #102 - HarvietheDinkle (07/27/2012) [-]
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.

the eagles are a strong, independent race, who don't need no frodo

LOTR - The book explains better why they can't just do that. The eagles are intelligent creatures and have societies of their own. They don't care who rules the world because they are mothafukin eagles, why would it matter to them? So they don't want to risk going in there and getting attacked by the "winged beasts". Or something like that. :3
#4 to #3 - anon (07/26/2012) [-]
Tolkein explained that the one ring was to powerful for the eagles to be in contact with without getting ****** up.

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
#74 to #65 - deadlyambitions (07/27/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #108 to #74 - bchewey (07/27/2012) [-]
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
#207 to #108 - deadlyambitions (07/27/2012) [-]
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
User avatar #208 to #207 - bchewey (07/27/2012) [-]
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
#209 to #208 - deadlyambitions (07/28/2012) [-]
lol but that didnt bring balance to the force. his son killing him brought balance
User avatar #211 to #209 - bchewey (07/28/2012) [-]
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

... If Obi-Wan killed Anakin then the Emperor still would have taken over the galaxy.. and Anakin would not have killed him to save Luke and "bring balance to the Force"
User avatar #46 - ortonja (07/26/2012) [-]
Regarding the Star Wars one, I think Obi Wan was just trying to stop Anakin, not kill him. I think he still considered Anakin his brother, so wouldn't intentionally try to end his life. Even 20 or so years later in A New Hope, he still believed that there was good in his heart.

all the orcs were outside the black gate fighting on the ground they were too busy to be trying to take down an eagle. so the only adversaries were the nasgool which you see them fighting and beating.
User avatar #132 to #123 - sweetnothings (07/27/2012) [-]
they flew on the eagles after sauron had been destroyed.The orchs had either died or fled by that point
#2 - PrestigousTurd (07/26/2012) [-]
Personally i think that if obi-wan had killed anakin on mustafar the emperor would have just found a new apprentice and carried on...anakin was prophesized to destroy the sith and he did just not in the manner or timely fashion that yoda, obi-wan or anyone else had expected
also pic related
#6 to #2 - anon (07/26/2012) [-]
but anikin didnt...just 50 years later the new republic gets completly ****** and the new sith order takes over the control.
User avatar #8 to #6 - Crusader (07/26/2012) [-]
I think Anakin bringing balance to the force meant that because of him, the Jedi would survive, it was his son that recreated the jedi order after all
#17 to #2 - acerose (07/26/2012) [-]
Skywalker was prophesied to be the one to destroy the sith.
They assumed it was Anakin, but it was actually Luke, as is made clear in both the books and movies.

Even if the emperor found a new apprentice, he would not have been as powerful as Anakin, because he was LITERALLY born with a mother and the force instead of a father, and had a higher midichlorian count than any other person in history because of it.
Midichlorians are microorganisms that function like organelles in the body and allow the force to be harnessed.

Anakin was the one to destroy the sith. Luke didn't kill the emperor.
User avatar #23 to #17 - HarvietheDinkle (07/26/2012) [-]
But would Obi-wan have known all that? At least the part about Anakin not being the prophesized one.

The Jedi don't kill helpless individuals. The best he could do was leave him to his fate.
User avatar #27 to #26 - HarvietheDinkle (07/26/2012) [-]
There's that, too
User avatar #22 to #17 - thephantur (07/26/2012) [-]
You can't destroy the Sith... the Sith is an idea, you can't kill that as V once said.

No, Luke was foretold to bring harmony back to the force, in other words, he would defeat the Sith at that point in time so that the balance between good and evil could become balanced again. You can't have good without evil. (Plus Luke fell to the dark side after the movies and became a Jedi again after).

In the books of LOTR, it is explained that the eagles care not for the troubles of man, elf, hobbit, wizard, etc. Which is why they don't fly
