Aww! Just look at how wrong you are...

When does artistic license become unartistic butchery. Answer: When Peter Jackson makes a film.

Your no Tolkien fan. If you were you'd have blown a gasket at what he did. I couldn't make it through The Two Towers
without being in a seething rage. I still have not watched the Return of the King and never will. From all indications in the
clip I have seen of a trailer for The Hobbit he has hacked that up as well.


You sound like one of those folks who blow a gasket each month Martin doesn't release a Game of Thrones novel. The ownership that some "fans" take over the works of others can be equally irritating and depressing at times. Some of Jackson's choices were made simply because they made a better film. Jesus.

whizbangthedirtfarmer: Icetech3:
Um, I read the books every year, and watch the trilogy almost every year, too..


I suggest you expand your reading - Tolkien is brutally bad.

I wish he'd go back to the Naomi Novik series of novels. Dragon air force in the Napoleonic wars. Dammit GO MAKE THAT MOVIE!

Hoping that the TV format would create something more compelling and intimate like when he made Heavenly Creatures. But grotesque zombies would be cool too.
