13 The Att ack On Weathertop
The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring
After dodging the Ringwraiths for most of the film, now our Hobbits find themselves cornered and defenceless in a scene that’s so filled with dread it’s a wonder they didn’t all just faint away from fear. Instead, our heroes gamely try to protect Frodo, proving they’re braver folks than us. From the way the Ringwraiths surround the Hobbits to their scary ghost- faces ( visible only when Frodo wears the Ring), they’re the stuff of nightmares – but it’s the way Aragorn bounds in from nowhere, sword flying, that makes this scene genuinely thrilling.
All of life’s problems can be solved using swords. Even really big ones.
