nothing wrong with that [In reply to] Can't Post

as DanielLB said its opinion which everyone has a unique one. I can respect that.

My disappointment is that Peter Jackson could have followed the book, there is no reason he shouldn't have. He chose not to follow it for no reason other than to change it because he wanted to IMO. The books material done in the style of LOTR would have been amazingly entertaining to mass audiences if given a chance. But it was never given that chance. Thus far the production team has done nothing to say to deny they merely changed the story for no good reason other than they wanted to. There has been no comments about going back to the source material. but has been many comments about changing things based on the appendices. Which from all my times reading those, they used nothing other than names and places and made up their own story instead. A film maker who loves the source material, would have made this film with reverence to the source material, at least in my mind. Not just figured out a way to manipulate it so they could go OTT in more scenes, rather than stay true to the source. I can think of many many ways they could have stuck to the story Tolkien wrote and made the whole thing entertaining without making it a OTT farce of itself
