Females versus males and LOTR/The Hobbit

In my experience online, somewhat more females than males like the Middle-Earth films (I developed friendships with several at the time the LOTR films were released). However, I would like to add that in my circle of off-line acquaintances, no one apart from my sisters pays much attention to either Tolkien's books or the films.

One of the major draws to the films for me has been the portrayal of key male characters: Thorin, Gandalf, Aragorn and Bilbo (in The Hobbit and older Bilbo in FOTR). It is the acting that I value the most (though Thorin is also incredibly attractive of course). Thranduil and Beorn also look promising.

I have found most of the female characters so far quite irritating, and have not liked their expanded roles in the films (especially because of the loss of Glorfindel). The latest one, who has been given so much promotion, is a source of irritation and is unfortunately alienating me when it comes to DoS. I only hope her role will be small, and that she will not be made any kind of major character.
