bernard hill was also voice tirion fordring,
pretty much all around cool guy dealing with alot of petty bullshit and riding in to save the day
he was a total badass in the books, when i read his cavalry charge speech in the book i wondered how in hell they were going to do the original justice.

Except in the books Charge of Rohirim made sense.
It was a smart use of cavalry, with majority attacking the flanks and pinning the orks between them and a massive army Gondor had assembled.
In the movie Gondor practically has no army but some city guard and Ithilien watch and Rohirim ride in a wedge into a massive foot army. Also known as "The idiot's suicide maneuver"
"The idiot's suicide maneuver" - true in almost all cases, but this one is an exception.
Here we have a highly motivated, if not to say inspired, force of heavy cavalry charging against a surprised, if not shocked, enemy with dubious morale and even more dubious discipline, equipped with ill-designed weapons.
Seriously, have you looked at those "pikes"? Normally a pike is a formidable weapon against a cavalry charge, even more so than a spear, but those things? Laughably short, and they practically scream non-existant quality control.
As one can easily see, the orcs are basically routing at the moment the charge hits home. And guess what, even if a cavalry charge is normally not a good idea against the front of an infantry formation, it is an excellent move against a routing enemy, usually with catastrophic results for the routing troops.
The only thing the orcs do right is the initial arrow barrage. They do about as well as shortbows against mail-clad horsemen are expected to do, thinning their ranks, but not by enough to stop the charge.
tl;dr: The movies are not as unrealistic as you make them to be.
I don't care how motivated Rohan army is, and how disorganized orks are, its a suicide manuver.
Every cavalry commander who I read about, wrote about how wedge formation is one thing that should never ever be used.
There are quotes from Jan III Sobieski, Latour-Maubourg, even going as far back to the Black Prince, every one of them says that wedge formation is suicidal.
Sobieski went far enough to call it a "stupidest way for a man to die"
Because you end up with horses in front swamped and unable to move, and they block EVERYONE ELSE. Then its over. Some might be saved, but entire tip is just gone, They don't stand a chance.
And Rohirim should be the world's best horsemen, and yet they do something that every great cavalry leader in history considered idiotic?
Sorry, its just as unrealistic and stupid as I make it to be.
TBH the movie battles were fucking gay. Well, to be precise, minas tirith was cool until rohhirim arrived. Then it was boom! Cavalry charge! Instant win! That fucking sucks.
Gondor was even worse. Gondorians were portrayed like total pansies, unable to kill even a single ork. That pissed me off because I really like gondor. Their soldiers look liketo absolute fucking bad-asses that murder 1/10 ratio. I also like their armor as well.
Cue the dissapointment when they were utterly massacred intil BOOM CAVALRY CHARGE! INSTANT WIN! ALL HAIL PETER JACKSON AND HIS FETISH OF CAVALRY RIDING INTO A FORMATION OF PIKES!
(because apparently, cloudbreak that will make enemy front line to raise their pikes a little, is enough for fucking cavalry to charge headfirst into pikes)

10/10 favorite man in the series. I love how the films portray him especially.
He's totally lost hope for the future but keeps fighting anyway, making absolutely sure that Sauron will remember him. Willing to sacrifice himself to save Middle Earth, and on a mission to go out in a blaze of glory.
