When they rammed the star destroyer into the other star destroyer I pretty much nutted in the movie theater.

I never was into futuristic sci fi like Star wars/trek, it was all about swords and sorcery for me


So, of course LOTR was one of my favorite movie series, and of it, one of my favorite scenes was of course the Balrog scene

However, another scene I came to appreciate a lot more after I learned some LOTR lore. That scene is the fight of Sam vs the spider Shelob:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=


Shelob is the descendent of a humongous (and scarier than even Sauron) demon spider from the abyss named Ungoliant. Ungoliant was described with a desire to devour life but also, light. The lore was that she belched forth darkness so thick that that no light could penetrate it

Interesting info on Ungoliant here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=



Shelob, her descendent had the power to radiate darkness that devoured light as well. Galadriel foresaw this when she gave frodo the light of Elendil, and said "May it be a light for you in dark places, when all other lights go out". The reality is, had Frodo and Sam been carrying a torch or any other light source, as Shelob approached the darkness coming off her would have put the torch out, making them be fighting completely blind. So Galadriel was not being metaphorical when she said those words, she was being literal. I found that interesting







And of course, this character from LOTR lore that I learned about, became one of my favorite fantasy characters in terms of being a complete badass:

Another movie that made the fantasy nerd in me was giddy was The Chronicles of Narnia, especially of course at the final battle scene. I actually like this scene more than any battle scene in LOTR, just because it is more whimsical

I also think Tilda Swinton is my favorite all time female villain in terms of acting. I was very impressed with Lena Headey in the Judge Dredd remake, and Galadriel (lol Cate Blanchett) did a good job on Thor Ragnarok too

I liked this scene mostly because I had no idea how big a name or talented the actor that played the fawn Tumnus, James McAvoy, was. I just remember thinking "man whoever is playing Tumnus is killing it"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=

I really like this scene for when he said "because I believe in a free Narnia"



Of The Chronicles of Narnia series, the first is really good, the sequels not as much in my opinion

One of the last somewhat recent (I've only seen movies through the 80's, 90's and early 2000's) movies I saw was Nightcrawler. Really dark but interesting story about a socially awkward but intelligent highly motivated complete sociopath

The acting from Jake Gyllenhaal was so good throughout, so it's hard to pick individual scenes

Great scene/quote

I always thought it was strange seeing Gandalf an old man swinging a sword and appearing at times agile. It wasn’t until I had heard more LOTR lore that I learned Gandalf is a Maia, which is like an angelic being that often chooses to take the shape of an old man

So although he appears like an old human, he probably can hit with his sword harder and move faster than most young humans
