Agreed! [In reply to] Can't Post

The LOTR films are already long and good enough and work fine as they are, I don't want to see irrelevant new scenes shoved in (especially since PJ would probably do a 'Lucas' and film/animate them with mood killing CGI) just to provide unnecessary links to a prequel unconcived at the time of their filming.

As much as I like visuallising The Hunt for Gollum, Dain's final stand outside Erebor (Really love visuallising this one!) etc their is a a difference between adapting a book/bringing material into a story where it needs it, and needlessly expanding/ inventing wholesale a new story or subplots. If every note and throw away reference from the books that could possibly be utilised in these films is utilised then where is the fun in reading the book and visualising the story for yourself? The idea of Jackson filling in the 'gaps of the story' may excite some people, but for me background notes in a story should remain just that.

‘As they came to the gates Cirdan the Shipwright came forth to greet them. Very tall he was, and his beard was long, and we was grey and old, save that his eyes were keen as stars; and he looked at them and bowed, and said ‘All is now ready.’

Perhaps the most fascinating Individual in Middle Earth

        Hmm, the added chance of seing Billy Connoly on a armoured Boar in LOTR is an inticing one I must admit... malickfan Send a private message to malickfan May 18 2013, 8:11pm
