I agree, though I did like the little trolling by PJ in the Fellowship movie when Barad-dûr it shown for the first time; you get to see a fairly evil but unimpressive looking tower and assume it is Barad-dûr, very much downplayed. Until the camera starts zooming out and up, and the viewer realises it was only a gate-tower when the place itself is incredibly large. (was good riiiight up until the eye-tower)
