    My opinion is Helms deep bc of all the black bloodshed of the Uruk-Hai and the gory violence of the slaying!!!! \

    Yeah, the battle at Helm's Deep was really cool. And I also love the battle on the Pelennor fields. So it's hard to choose... It's always hard to choose for me. :p
    Well, I think I like the battle at Helm's Deep most, because it seems to be hopeless and as if they had no chance against Saruman's army.

    I agree, Helm's deep is not as big as Pellenor fields, but is was so much darker! And I like darkness!

    I loved the Battle Of Dagorlad, and the Battle Of Fornost, but the best fight during the story of LOTR is Pelennor Fields and the desperate fight at the Morannon.

    Amon Hen was good, so was the small skirmish at Amon Sul(I probably would not call it small if I were there).

    Mine would have to be the battle at Helm's Deep as well. No contest there :) Loved the darkness.

    ok in the books the battle of five armies in the hobbit, in the movies the helms deep or the battle at the black gate, thats just such a cool battle with the horribly outnumbered men of the west vs the armies of mordor and i like the mouth of sauron.

    I liked the Minas Tirith battle, where the armies of the dead come over in the Corsair ships, and then surprise everyone when Aragorn Elessar comes in and reclaims Tirith. That was a very strategic and surprising battle, won mostly by tactics and the element of surprise, not sheer military might.

    Without a doubt, my favorite battle is the one by Faramir's Rangers in Ithilien. Ambush, high chance of success, low chance of own casualties and the general thought of a hail of arrows seemingly coming out of nowhere :)

    I like that too! I like the same effect that it had at the battle of Helms Deep, though. At the end when Gandalf and Eomer come running down the hill, and also when the Rohirrim in the Pelennor Fields suprise the Orcs. I like how they do it in the Extended Edition of the 3rd movie, that when Gandalf has the showdown between the Witch King, and then you hear the Rohan horns. Very much like the book! That was cool! :cool:
    I REALLY like the element of surprise tactics in all of those scenes!

    I, with no doubt, prefere the battle on the Pellenore fields ; just because it is the the greatest battle of them all, allmost everyone is involved, and I love the fact that it's not just hack and slash, but a bit more.... and that all the things about Denethor happens at the same time, it just makes it more interesting, than the battles where all happens in one scene... :p
