Hit the nail on the head...

In Reply To

The only thing worse than Hollywood making a Tolkien movie that nobody watches is Hollywood making a Tolkien movie that everybody watches.

This pretty much sums up every fandom.

Trekkers- JJ Abrams sucks! (resurrected a dead series)
Tolkienites- Peter Jackson sucks! (more popular than ever)
Whoviens- Stephen Moffat sucks! (more popular than ever)
(who comes up with these names??) If someone tries to make the story accessible for everyone they cry foul. Most people just don't take movies, books or tv shows so seriously...nor do they judge something before it's come out. Some people already hate Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor...and he hasn't even started filming yet...just like people are already complaining about Beorn when we've seen exactly one blurry, low-res still of him.

There's no point in making the exact same thing that has come before. If it's exactly like the book, it's a wasted effort.

Amy: Then why am I here?
The Doctor: Because! Because I can't see it anymore.
Amy: See what?
The Doctor: I'm 907. After a while... you just can't see it!
Amy: See what?
The Doctor: Everything! I look at a star and it's just a big ball of burning gas and I know how it began and I know how it ends and I was probably there both times. After a while, everything is just stuff! That's the problem. You make all of space and time your backyard and what do you have? A backyard. But you, you can see it. And when you see it, I see it.
