Did anyone like gandalf beating denethor with his staff?
yes....I'd love to do that to some stupid people sometimes
I loved it. I want to be able to beat up my coworkers with a staff when they're annoying.
I think denethor acted a little too insane in some parts
Did that lovely sword of his burn as well?
Nope it fell off the battlement and was lost
I loved gandalf beating Denathor, it was a great running joke.
lol yeah it was some sort of extended edition of "Fool of a Denethor"
Seriously, sometimes I think Gandalf likes beating people with his staff a little TOO much.... and when he doesn't have his staff he use's the blunt end of a spear, I guess he just plain old loves wacking people with blunt objects....
Its rather fun you know
hmmm so Gandalf has a thing for whacking old people. suddenly I don't want to know anymore what live's like for Maiar spirits. probably one big orgy.
I thought it was a little exadurated but thats my opinion
I thought it was funny that Denethor was like "Run away!!" I just kept thinking of monty python and the holy grail.
I thought it was great. I just showed how annoyed Gandalf was getting and how important he considered the unfolding events.
I liked the way it showed gandalfs power and his respect among the gondorians. After all, with denethor being a defeatist whiner he had it coming.
denethors death was funny, when on fire jump off a cliff.
Didn't like it much, I have to say. To me, it was just unecessary, and it took away from the Denethor emotional drama...
I very much liked Sir McKellen's line after the whole spectacle, though:
"So passes Denethor, son of Echtelion"
I agree with you Aiglos, the beating and death of Denethor was sometimes a little overdone but the line Gandalf said was just beautifal
I think it was a bit unlikely that Denethor was able to run so far, and then throw himself off the cliff while on fire. I highly doubt that anyone would be able to do that in real life. But then again, it is a movie, and in movies everything is possible.
but dont forget denethors long flowing robes
