Fire beacons are SO last age
Movie Inspiration: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
If the Internet had existed in Middle Earth, the real beacons would have been totally superfluous. Tweeting and updating your Facebook status would have been all you needed to do to get the word out.
I wanted to come up with tweets that would have logically preceded the lighting of the beacon in the movie, but because I haven’t watched “Return of the King” in over a year, I had some trouble remembering the exact order of events with all of the various story lines. At CJ’s prodding, I threw it in and watched about 20 minutes leading up to it.
Other than coming up with tweets for everyone, it was fun trying to decide what some random Rohan guard, Pippen, Gandalf, and Gollum, respectively, would have used for their profile pic.
