Well I was irked [In reply to] Can't Post

by many things from the movies but there was only one major problem with the books- they ended!

My pet peeve list for the films starts with Frodo's appearance - Elijah Wood just did not fit in for me! Then we move on to sending Frodo directly from the Shire to Bree just where were Goldberry, Tom B., Fatty Bolger, and Glorfindel hiding? Then the wraiths invaded Bree and apparently could not find the missing hobbits... that would be a little hard to explain considering that they were portrayed as very dangerous later on. I especially hated Faramir's erratic actions coupled his apparent inability to think for himself and lead his me. I still can't watch Frodo turning Sam away it just does not fit in with his character and seems rather pointless to me ( the same can be said for I-do-not-want-to-be-king-Aragorn). And two a final irksome details would be Legolas' surfing tricks and Gimil's job as humorous sidekick. I loved most of the films but the above mentioned facts were both annoying and saddening to me.

Faithful servant yet master's bane,
Lightfoot's foal, swift Snowmane
