hmm not sure how to respond to this, lol [In reply to] Can't Post

For me i dont see them being too close as something that is wrong, i see it as a natural position to be in if one has dedicated their lives to something so for me its not extreme or something to be cured or anything negative. Its just a natural process.

Of course others who are distant compared to them can like or dislike the films but i do think if one is so close to the material as they were/are then you have such a clear mental image that the film will not reach what you want.

I dont see that as making excuses for them, as i said i dont see it as a negative at all, and from what i have read from christopher i get this impression from him, also the actions of the Tolkien estate lead me to this conclusion.

So going back to my original statement that Simon will be more fair minded (should have put that) or rational or whatever you want to call it is right. He will be as he doesnt have such deep emotional connection.

Does this make one greater than the other? No, but i never felt like i said it did. To me they are two perfectly acceptable opinions to have but one which Christopher and JRRT could never really obtain due to their connection with the work - is this bad, nope, just different.

I kinda get the feeling we are meaning the same but coming at it from different points of view/ways of saying it, with me not being clear enough in my points - as usual :(

as for the mum thing, my mum is totally irrational/biased with me, haha. Again i dont see that as a bad thing, i see it as a parents love, something sweet and touching. (this is only going off what my mum actually says so i could be wrong).
