    And such a demonstration of how much the hobbits had changed.

    But if you're just talking about the movies, then the fight inside Balin's tomb is a favourite of mine.

    The Battle for Helms Deep.

    It has everything; overwhelming odds, renewed alliances, friendly rivalry, explosives, possible death of one of the main characters and the sun rising on salvation. What more could you ask for?

    The diversion at the Black Gate has to be my favorite as you get the feeling even more than before that the heroes are sacrificing absolutely everything for something that is barely a vague hope. Has incredible feeling to it.

    Helm's Deep, because of the epic kill-counting game between legolas and gimli

    1. Helm's Deep: very well detailed
    2. Bywater: good plan from the hobbits who are standing up for themselves (The Todd says, pointing down to his crotch: "You know what else stands up for itself?")
    3. Unnumbered tears: well detailed

    In LOTR it is the battle on the Pelennor Fields and favorite Tolkien battle in general is the Battle of Unnumbered Tears.
