Dear Macfalk

what do you mean by 'in moderation? thats quite an odd statement. A forum by definition is for people to come together from all spectrums of Tolkien/PJ interest from the most enthusiastic to the most intransigent purist and everything in between. Debate is the name of the game, thats why we are here. You have signed up for other peoples heart felt opinions, and in a democracy with free speech, you have to let folks express themselves. If people are disappointed its not a threat to those who love everything, its not moaning, its wanting to share concerns and I think everyone who posts here loves Tolkien with a passion thats why things get passionate. I suggest avoiding threads that are likely to make you feel doubts and disquietude. I understand that too much negativity is wearing to the soul, it corrodes slowly, but I think people here are not trying to promote negativity or disseminate bad vibes, merely express concerns and try to understand why exactly they are feeling let down. There is so much invested interest in these films, I am very afraid that I will sit there in the dark of the cinema feeling a creeping sense of yes, I said it, disappointment. I hope not as I am an optimistic glass half-full person not given to negativity in life as its far too short for all that. At the end of the day these films are pure entertainment meant for us to escape our everyday lives and dive back into Middle Earth once again. I hope we can for all of us.
