The Battle for Middle Earth

Just before Christmas, Channel 4 ran through the Lord of the Rings film trilogy, and while watching the third film, something about the scene where Aragorn and his army march to the gates of Mordor struck me as very familiar. There was something about the way it was shot that reminded me of something I'd seen before.

Lacking both the skills and software to properly illustrate what I saw, I mentioned it to James, who has plenty of both. And he produced this, which is absolutely spot on:

So spot on, in fact, that it's almost as if Peter Jackson filmed the scene in this way deliberately.

Thanks James!


  1. That is ace... especially for the bemused expressions on Gandalf, Aragorn et al's faces :)
