You have my sword. And my bow! And my lantern! Wait...what...lantern?
Exactly! That’s exactly how that scene should’ve gone. First, another close-range weapon? No, someone call an Eagle to fly over and drop dirt on the enemy. Second, how many times will they walk through an area that has barely any light. Everywhere in Middle Earth is overcast. Worse. Weather. Ever. I bet if they had lanterns they would’ve seen that they were walking straight into Shelob’s lair.
