  • What Are The Differences Between Gandalf The Gray And Humbledore

    Gandalf and Dumbledore are both the masterminds in their series. However both of their plans both entirely hinge on helping a young boy save the world. Gandalf entrusts the One Ring to Frodo who must journey on foot in evils backyard in order to destroy it. Dumbledore’s pupil Harry is destine to save the world by building up his strengths and finding relics to battle Voldemort head on. While we admire Dumbledore for settling bureaucratic and judicial hurdles for harry, Gandalf pretty much scarifies himself for Frodo and the greater good of Middle Earth. In order for Frodo to continue his quest Gandalf had to sacrifice his life at the bridge of Moria while fighting off Balrog. He then comes back and becomes Gandalf the White to continue helping Frodo’s Quest to destroy the ring. Throughout each series of movies both are heroic and helping to defeat evil. Although Dumbledore is proven to be more powerful with magic, Gandalf outweighs Dumbledore in his character portrayal, his experience, his foes, and helping his hero. So the winner in my book is the wizard of Middle Earth. I hope by now you have come to conclude that Gandalf the Gray (now know as Gandalf the White) is the greatest and most helping wizard of all…

  • William Bennett The Balrog Analysis

    Bennett's example of evil is America's drug problem, which he addresses through its spiritual and physical aspects. Tolkien demonstrates evil through the "Balrog" (Tolkien 330). However, he only writes about its physical aspects. Bennett and Tolkien agree that evil is a physically harmful problem that requires a type of sacrifice. For William Bennett, the problem of evil is drugs. Drugs can cause extreme harm both emotionally and physically on the user and those around the user. He uses the…

  • R. Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings: Why The Book Should Be Banned?

    “god” of Middle-Earth comes into play. Without going to deep into the lore, there is a “god” named Eru Ilúvatar. He is only mention briefly when Gandalf talks to Aragorn after he come back from the dead, returning as Gandalf the White. Thus, he can’t really be compared to a god of the modern times. Which leads to another “sacrilegious” point being resurrection and immortals. Gandalf is an immortal character. He can and will live forever, or until Eru decides he should remain dead (but I will…

  • Essay On Night Archetypes

    The creature of the night archetypes is my favorite to write about because there are so many creepy and crawly creatures to talk about in the lord of the ring. A human being person used as a term of scorn, pity, or endearment is the definition of Creature of the night and the fellowship of the rings is a wonderful place to find any number of things that fit that description. Some of my favorites are Golem the balrog and the Uruk-hai. So to start I picked Golem because he is a living breathing…

  • Redemption Theory In Film Essay

    through its parallels to the Christus Victor theory of atonement. Throughout the films, we can find the embodiment of this theory in the characters of Gandalf, Aragorn, and Frodo. The first, and perhaps the most obvious parallel to Christ, is the character of Gandalf. Throughout the films, Gandalf displays many Christlike features though his appearance and actions. Gandalf the Grey, as he is introduced to us, is an unassuming elderly wizard, but beneath the surface is so much more than meets…

  • Fellowship Of The Ring Suspense Analysis

    effects play a big role in the suspense factor. The sound in movies, such as The Fellowship of the Ring, create a certain feeling, or emotion. Deep, rumbling sounds like drum rolls tend to signal danger or trouble. The high, soothing sounds let you know that everything will be okay for the character. Climatic sounds are those deep rumbling sounds, not high and soothing. One example of good sound effects is when Pippin knocks the skeleton down the well. As the skeleton is falling, there…
