Sorry, didn't notice the replies. Tar Jex is right, there are 13 men of the house of Beor left in Dorthonion not 12. The Silmarillion states that dragons of the brood of Glaurung are part of the army...

If that happens the film should end with Legolas cradling Tauriel in his arms doing his best Darth Vader 'nooooo'. Plus the battle should have multiple Wilhelm screams.

For me it's not just one event or character, to put it simply it's how good the good guys are and how bad the bad guys are. It doesn't necessarily 'break the enchantment' but it is something that...

1. Only 12 men of the House of Beor remain in Dorthonion before Sauron has all but Beren killed.

Thomasina, Berta and Wilhelmena. I'd imagine their conversation would have been more like a Mrs Brown's Boys sketch if that had been the case.

I'm not sure Sauron or any of his followers had the knowledge of agriculture necessary to establish crops in the fields of Nurn that could feed the armies of Mordor. It seems reasonable that either...
