Felix Sotomayor's Picture
Sotomayor's Minas Tirith does not resemble Tolkien's description of the capital of Gondor. If we're going to use the image, it will have to be with the First Age fortress of Minas Tirith in Beleriand, which guarded the Pass of Sirion. I've moved the image there.
- Sounds good, your right it doesn't resemble Minas Tirith in Gondor, are we positive it is supposed to be the Minas Tirith in Beleriand though? If it's really just a poorly created version of Minas Tirith in Gondor we can remove it all together. --Hyarion 18:24, 20 April 2006 (EDT)
- AFAIK, Tolkien really didn't give a description of Orodreth's Minas Tirith. Since many other images are nothing more than good guesses, and Sotomayor's picture is quite good, I don't have problem using it. --Ebakunin 18:52, 20 April 2006 (EDT)
Info from book and from movies
I think this article needs to diversify more clearly between info from Tolkien's writings and PJs movies. For example, where does the reference to "a battery of 100 trebuchets" originate? I can't recall it from the book. --Earendilyon 16:22, 21 April 2006 (EDT)
- I definitely agree. I think we should try and make it a standard to have a "Portrayal in adaptions" heading for the articles which have information related to Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings. But I do think it would be alright to show an image from the films as one of the main images for the article, as you have to admit, there are a lot of things they did a great job portraying. --Hyarion 16:47, 21 April 2006 (EDT)
