Mordor - mythical land created by J.R.R. Tolkien for his famous "the Lord of the Rings" trilogy was mountainous region ruled by evil Sauron. When I first saw above scene I immediately thought about Mordor. Ok, it looked different in Peter Jackson's movie (I have to go to New Zealand one day...) but I read Tolkien's book much much earlier and was more influenced by this than the film.
