Professor Michael Drout Slams PJ ! Can't Post

Professor Michael Drout, editor of The Tolkien Encyclopedia and co-editor of Tolkien Studies, has lambasted pJ and Boyens in his review of AUJ, here:

http://wormtalk.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/the-first-hobbit-film-some-thoughts.html

"I had some issues. These are all more in sorrow than in anger, because I think Jackson had the opportunity to make a great film but missed itóin part because of the lowest-common-denominator needs of global Hollywood, but also in part because he and screenwriter Philippa Boyens didnít entirely understand their material or trust their audience."

Go get 'im.

admins - hope this isn't in the wrong place
