You know. . . you'd be surprised. [In reply to] Can't Post

Fandoms are rather like religions. . . and people could get really ugly about that, even when they still had 3rd world problems. Ancient 3rd world problems at that. Fandom becomes part of how a person defines themselves. And woe betide anyone who tinkers with such a thing Unsure.

The people who think that these movies are causing "harm to the greater good" have obviously never seen how most of the people in the world live

Many things could be took the same way - getting angry at phone being broke - most people dont have enough to eat never mind have a car - its all first world problems.

Essentially it is all debate and i hope that noone thinks genuine harm will come from the films, its as i said harm to people's collective opinion of the world created - if one is as invested as CT then i think i would be the same way and i think he can be excused for thinking the way he does.

For others i dont really get it, but at the same time i want the books to be the main source of imagery and understanding of the world and not the films - but i dont even know why really as like you say it just doesnt matter and i make no money from it and it doesnt affect my life - and yet i still want it to be the books as the main thing, lol. I think its something like - i love the books so much i want others to love them as well, haha so childish!
