way they said "Mordor", based on how I think "in the
land of Mordor where the shadows lie" and "for into
darkness fell his star, in Mordor where the shadows
are' should sound. Not based on any scholarship in
Middle-earth linguistics. Anyway I thought they did a
great job overall in the movie. Happy Holidays to all.
