Lord of the Rings is bascially about how a bunch of weirdos walked a really really long way.
bunch of wierdos walk a really long way and throw it in a volcano
no real backstory, no real explanation as to why random strangers all have to walk around together (uh.. an elf said so, yea.. thats why)
also, why does it take so long to GET THERE but they can fly back in like an hour.. wtf, why didnt they just fly to it in the first place
whole story is an excuse to walk around in the woods and cry with random strangers over dumb things
really, a ring that can make you invisible is enough to make the whole world go nuts? its powerful sure, but wtf, really? they could have given it to golem and let him cry alone in a cave the rest of his miserable life and no one would care
