Reading the books changes everything.

Mostly because it takes so much longer....

Or actually watch the movies again watching these parts:

Boromir: "One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just Orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. And the great Eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland. Riddled with fire and ash and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume. Not with ten thousand men could you do this. It is folly!"

And when they make it through Ungoliant's tunnel (and Ungoliant was not just a "giant spider" but a primordial being in the shape of a spider), hey what's that big tower looming over the path? The watchtower of Cirith Ungol maybe? Full of watchers? Who capture little Frodo? Hmm, yes.

And why did the army of Men and Elves have to attack the main gate to Mordor?
Gandalf: "I've sent him to his death."
Aragorn: "No. There's still hope for Frodo. He needs time, and safe passage across the Plains of Gorgoroth."
Gimli: "How?"
Aragorn: "Draw out Sauron's armies. Empty his lands. Then we gather our full strength and march on the Black Gate."
Éomer: "We cannot achieve victory through strength of arms."
Aragorn: "Not for ourselves, but we can give Frodo his chance if we keep Sauron's Eye fixed upon us."

And that "dull sword" that cut off Sauron's finger that was still sharp enough 3,000 years later to slice open Boromir's finger when he touched it?
