The Lord of the Rings film trilogy is an amazing series of films that redefined the term "epic". The Fellowship of the Ring went through absolute hell to get the One Ring into the fires of Mount Doom but there are many who write the whole thing off as nothing but a bunch of walking. Their biggest argument generally boils down to "Gandalf should have just used the Eagles to fly to Mordor". Aside from this undermining the whole point of the journey, it has been argued by fans that this simply didn't work. There have been a variety of articles which put forth excellent theories but YouTube channel BrotherhoodWorkshop has summed things up with a brilliant (and adorable) LEGO animation which puts the argument to rest. Enjoy!
