And I'm thinking the walls on Helms Deep are about 6ft thick and Sarumon pours what appears to be a form of black powder into a sphere that looks about 3ft in diameter. I don't think it would cause a big enough boom to get the damage depicted in the movie.What say ye?

Sweet. Wife and I are watching FOTR right now. This begins our annual LOTR marathon at Thanksgiving.

No pics. She posts here, and can post her own pics if she wants.

Oh, btw, That was Middle Earth black powder. It is far more explosive than our regular Earth bp.

Saruman added magical mojo to the powder.

The movie is about a midget with a magical ring being chased by dead kings on flying dragons

and your problem with it is a bomb used may not be exactly to scale...?

I just read the books again a few months ago... they are on a completely different level than the movies IMO.

6 feet thick? more like 6 along the walkway at the top and probably 20 or more at the base.

Does anyone else scream out "look out, it's the Palestinian!" when the torch carrying Uruk-hai runs to the black powder spheres?

Uruk-hai. And I thought it was an Orc that ran the torch?

I'm pretty sure (in the movie The Two Towers) only Uruk-hai laid siege to Helms Deep:

You know they're Uruk-Hai because they call themselves the Uruk-Hai constantly.

Because they're the fighting Uruk-Hai.

Uruk-Hai!
