The Battle of Dol Guldur

"Oh, was this your water?"

“Oh, was this your water?”

People hate on the Hobbit films, and for sure, they had their problems. One thing I did like, though, was the expansion of the Necromancer/Dol Guldur storyline. I remember reading The Hobbit as a child and being very confused that there wasn’t more information on what Gandalf seemed to feel was a big enough deal to leave the quest for large portions of the book.

Check out this fan-edit of the Hobbit’s Dol Goldur sequences. It’s a really nicely done 40-minute mini-movie. Watching Gandalf, Saruman, Elrond, and GALADRI-FUCKING-EL (BEAUTIFUL AND TERRIBLE AS THE DAWN, ETC.) lay some hate on the wraiths is badass.
