Why LOTR Sucks: I Feel Nauseous
January 25, 2012
Allow me to state the obvious. Peter Jackson had no idea how to successfully depict the Black Riders. After they throw the first rider off the trail with a well thrown bag of vegetables, the hobbits decide to head for the ferry. Then, out of nowhere, a rider stumbles upon them. Unfortunately, the Dark Lord has the worst evil servants imaginable. Worse than the henchmen in a Bond movie. Worse than Darth Helmet. Worse than the bad guys on an episode of the A-Team, who would literally shoot a circle around B. A. Baracus and the gang. One of the Dark Lord’s most evil servants is on horseback and has Frodo and the ring at his feet, and he’s unable to capture him. The hobbits run an undetermined distance, hop onto the ferry, and being 5 yards away, are now safely out of reach. Apparently these dark riders have no kind of magic that can extend beyond their immediate person.
