The flying Nazguls would have taken them out :)

Or Sauron, they did have to creep in to destroy the ring.

Brilliant idea! Would have been an awfully short and dull book though :D Also, maybe nobody trusted the Eagles with the ring in the first place, and maybe it would have been a bit difficult for a huge Eagle to get through Sammath Naur in to the cracks of doom?
Nice though, welcome seyoungahn, good to have you here.

Not like IJ? What about the bit where Frodo dives under the closing stone door, then reaches back and grabs his hat before it closes? What about that eh????

I don't like adventure films too much. Tarzan stuff = *puke :)

No, never trust a bird, for it only has bird brains! :P
And Tolkien said the book is already too short, so cutting the journey of Frodo and co to Mordor and having the eagles to drop the Ring into the fire would be ridiculous, right? :P

if the bird brains are too small, gandalf could have easily gone on gwaihir's back and dropped it in to the mountain himself.

but Gandalf wouldn't have taken the ring in the first place...and I think it's beyond anybody's power to willingly drop the ring into the mountain...it took Gollum's falling in to get it there

Did I miss that too? If I did, I missed PJ's tribute to Indy Jones. Did he throw in any Hitchcockian scenes as well? :D[Edited on 22/1/2002 by Grondmaster]
