    I'd have to say Helm's Deep, because I thought it was extremely well constructed in both the book and the movie. Particularly the movie, since it raised so many great emotions in me. Plus, I always like it when the good guys are defending a fortress against impossible odds.

    Either Helm's Deep or Pellenor fields. Both for the Rohirrim's part in it. I think Helm's deep is the winner, with the blowing of the horn of Hamburg and the Rohirrim's ride in. Cause Rohan rocks my socks.

    I would say the battle of The Unnumbered Tears.

    Many Elf and Men die it that battle.

    And i also like the battle between Morgoth and Fingolfin

    ^ Well if we're talking all Tolkien's battles rather than just LotR, I particularly like the Fall of Gondolin (Lost Tales version) with Tuor, Ecthelion, Glorfindel, Galdor, Turgon et al :)

    Maybe not so much of a battle, but The seige of Gondor is my favourite part of all.
    The build up and tension was almost palpable. Brilliant

    I guess it has to be the battle of Helm's Deep but as it was written and described in the book.No fancy Elves arriving and no Aragorn and Gimli hollywood stuff.

    After than that it's Minas Tirith of course.

    Battle of A Thousand Tears or Unnumbered Tears I think it's called. In the Silmarillion.
