    I would be an Uruk-Hai becaus it would be fun dressing up in all that heavy armour and stuff besides it would be an honor to be slain by one of the fellowship!!haha!!

    After watching TTT over and over i've realized that if after the wall was breached, Aragorn held back his elven warriors and allowed them to just shoot arrows from a distance, they would have been much more effective. Which also brings in the fact that they might have won w/o the aide of the Rohirrim. Just something to think about

    Well no more than half the Elves were behind the wall so that's about 100, and they would have run out of arrows eventually. And even with all of them firing they wouldn't last forever, but it would have been much more effective for sure.

    I'd love to be an Elven extra. That armour is cool, and I'd love to play with one of those huge bows! :)

    And yeah, if I had 300 ELves with bows that can reach 300 yards, I'd be saying "Fire at will!" as soon as the Uruk's come within range! With 10,000 of them you're guaranteed to hit something!

    I'd want to be one of Faramir's rangers. Sneeking around in the woods with a good bow, life couldn't get much better!

    Well, they did hold some of the elves back. When Aragorn leads the charge only the elves in the rear guard come forward while the archers remain behind. And I still don't think they would have won. Because the elves provided enough support so that they could cover the deeping wall.

    Agreed, I thought Theodens speech and then the subsequent charge was a better scene than Aragorn's speech and attack on the black gates.

    That's because Theoden's speech is from the books. ;)
