Unfilmable Can't Post

This question goes to those who have spent more years than me reading the books of Tolkien, and have a better knowledge.

Most of the reviews I've seen of the Lord of the Rings movies always seem to mention that it was always believed to be unfilmable.

Can someone explain why, or what it is with the books that make them unfilmable? I'm just wondering if anyone has any specifically thing with them, or if there ever Tolkien has named a reason for why they would be concidered unfilmable?

Thanks Smile
