If it makes you feel any better

I'm annoyed to no end about adding romance and female characters in the film.
No disrespect to the ladies (they are my favorite of the two sexes) but this demographic pandering is nonsense. There aren't any Asians, Blacks, gays or Latins in the story and I don't see the film catering to them.
And you know what? They shouldn't have to because it just happens to be a story void of women and romance & ethnic people.
I'm certainly not for habitually keeping certain demographics out of film but not everyone needs to be in every film all the time.
This is a classic story and I'm willing to bet women would come and enjoy TH and not even give it a second thought if they hadn't added these unnecessary changes. Adding females and romance to a story where there is none is an insult, I would say, to females.
I mean, what about me?!? Did they add Viggo to please me?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Tongue
Just the same I'm still going into to this giving the filmmaking team the benefit of the doubt because I think they've earned it at this point.

Davy Jones could've been Bilbo...I mean he was a Brit with a sense for adventure, singing & dancing. And think of the costs it would've save with forced perspective: he was ACTUALLY 5'3. He also hung out with a grumpy tall dude in a hat (Mike Nesmith.) While we're at it let's just have Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork as Merry & Pippin.
