I quite agree. [In reply to] Can't Post

There's definitely something missing from Tolkien's Middle Earth books - which is probably why they didn't sell that well, and youngsters stayed away from PJ's LOTR trilogy in droves.

But I'm not sure that sexiness alone is enough - I mean the world's moved on - what with Fifty Shades of Grey and all that stuff. Also, we're now four films in, and amazingly, not one decent car chase in the whole lot. How about resurrecting James Bond's old Aston Martin - Tauriel could drive it - she gives Legolas a lift, but they break down in Mirkwood and stumble into one of the Necromancer's S&M dungeons - except - he could really be an alien in disquise (this plot's not been done before has it??) and they try to fight their way out, but get trapped in the Necromancer's spaceship and the computer overhears them trying to shut it down, so it locks them out in space and they're running out of oxygen, so they have to make some kind of air filter from bits of the spaceship working on instructions from Mission Control and they just manage in time, but they crash the ship in the desert and they think they're back on earth but instead of humans everyone's an ape, except the humans are now dumb animals - it's a totally original idea and just what might save this failing franchise for Peter Jackson.
