It does come across as [In reply to] Can't Post

self-absorbed and a bit foolish, doesn't it? "Thanks for helping us out with a few ideas for our movies".

I'd like to think that that is a misunderstanding of their intent, but if certain studio suits do indeed view their source material in that way it would explain some of the truly awful "adaptations" of excellent books that have been inflicted on the viewing public over the years. Tongue

Anyway, it's nice to know that the case is settled. Here's hoping that lessons have been learned and this process won't need to be repeated in 5 years for the Hobbit movies!

"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."
