in your post on the LotR movie board, and I always enjoy reading your thoughts there. The only reason I responded to your post here, though, was because you seemed to be implying that the lack of complex arguments in response to yours meant that there are no such arguments. In the years after the LotR movies came out there was a lot of in-depth discussion about them, including many ideas about the points you dismiss as just PJ getting things wrong. You probably aren't aware of them, because you weren't here at the time.
You make some great points
But if you do want to discuss your ideas in depth, I for one would be more than happy to take part - but only if you can get over peppering your thoughts with annoying little "ad hominems" (like the "cheery brigade" in your earlier post) that, for me at least, only serve to muddy the effect of the excellent points that you make.
They went in, and Sam shut the door.
But even as he did so, he heard suddenly,
deep and unstilled,
the sigh and murmur of the Sea upon the shores of Middle-earth.
