"I have absolutely no doubt C.T hated the film (if he could bring himself to see it)."

I am struggling to imagine Christopher Tolkien with a box of popcorn and 3D glasses on.

I doubt J.R.R. Tolkien would've appreciated it that much either, though. He *might* have liked Radagast to an extent, I think. But if Azog bothers fans so much, how would Tolkien feel? Also, what would his reactions towards The Goblin King be?

Maybe DoS would have bothered him more because of Tauriel. And, I would love to see how The Professor would react to the alleged "Galadriel carrying Gandy" sequence...

Something tells me Christopher is more against adaptations that Ronald would ever be.

My question is, would Tolkien be more horrified at Rankin/Bass or AUJ? In the long run, the psychedelic sequence in Goblin-town that made me feel as if I were on opium is much worse than Azog and his cliche-villainnessness.

But it's better to listen to other people's opinions rather than mine at the moment. I'm half asleep. Crazy

Thanks for this post. Made me think a bit.
