I'm not liking all the Tauriel news that I'm seeing, but I can't help but think that we may all be jumping to conclusions here...

We are absolutely jumping to conclusions within our speculation. There will be equal debate in retrospect about who was right and wrong with their conclusions because everyone has their own appreciation and point of view.

The shame of it is that the amnesiatic quality of forum discussion does not hold people accountable and responsible for their opinions. Few will remember or admit they were wrong and it is unfortunately considered bad form to say "I was right." It is even worse in this touchy-feely, morally relative, PC trend we have today to say others were wrong if, in fact, they were. When all opinions are held as equally valid, informed or not, when no one is wrong, there's nothing to learn or improve.

The big lesson the writers may not have learned from LOTR criticism is that when they diverge from Tolkien, they do a poorer job of it.
