To be fair to Tolkien [In reply to] Can't Post

He would have never made movie versions of his works, that's why he waited so long to sell the film rights. Money is a powerful drug, and he had a family to look after. He knew they wouldn't work and he was right, they had to be edited greatly. Fans would be right to hate Zombie Tolkien!

I hope someday in the future when CGI is perfected and real actors aren't needed anymore, when it's cheap enough to make that attracting a large following and making a massive profit aren't important, we get a completely faithful miniseries. It will follow the books exactly, with every piece of dialogue word for word. Even then, it wouldn't perfectly emualte the book - nothing can - but it's as close as we'll ever get.
