Who Would Win In a Fight: Gandalf or Sherlock Holmes?

Sherlock fighting

It’s a tough call.

On the one hand, Gandalf has magic.  On the other hand, Sherlock Holmes is a mastermind who understands situations and people better than anyone else.  He might be able to outsmart Gandalf.

On yet another hand, Gandalf was able to see the big picture and notice the threat Saruman posed as well as Bilbo Baggins’s potential in the dwarves’ party, so perhaps he is Sherlock’s equal or better.

Classical Music Stories: The Hobbit

Hobbit robot

(SPOILERS)

Hungarian Rock by György Ligeti

Imagine if Bilbo and the dwarves were robots.

Off they go on their adventure! As robots they can’t feel the hardships of inclement weather or food shortages, so they’re basically happy and oblivious for the entire length of their journey.

(3:01) Suddenly, they find Smaug and things grind to a screeching halt…the dwarves now mourn the deaths of Thorin, Fili and Kili.

Despite their overwhelming loss, the music ends on a somewhat happy note.  After all, the hobbit and dwarves did fulfill their quest…albeit at a steep cost.
