I got the same feeling...

I agree. After reading the article on GDT, I definately got the sense that he was trying to "change" too much to fit his personal artistic agenda. I think it is a rational theory that there is more to GDT's departure than was released. I have to admit I would understand and executive decision in this case, I doubt very much that the "mainstream" audience and "Tolkien fans" a like would be very appreciative of any significant discontinuity with the original trilogy. Of course this is speculation on my part but, I have to say that I personally did not like the sound of the "transformations" that GDT had in mind, I felt they sounded like a fairly drastic departure from the original Trilogy's, atmosphere, design, color pallete, themes and concepts. I am interested to see how much GDT actually contributed to the script, because I think if anything was kept from his work it would most likely be in the original script he is an excellent story teller. I personally do not appreciate as much as others his artistic bent; his creatures, although interesting in Pan's Labrynth and the Hell Boy movies, are to flamboyent for my tastes.

"Stout men and lordly they are, and the Riders of Rohan look almost as boys beside them; for they are grim men of face, worn like weathered rocks for the most part, even as Aragorn himself; and they are silent."
