Tolkien vs. Jackson Can't Post

I love the discussions on this site. I love the interaction between so many people who have so many conflicting and opposing ideas. I have a question for anyone willing to answer: Would you be willing to read a book devoted to the sole purpose of analyzing Tolkien's LOTR and Hobbit and Peter Jackson's adaptations as companions?

I'm talking to people who love Tolkien and either love Jackson or hate him, I don't care. If there was a book comprehensive enough to discuss the beauty of Tolkien's created world and by using his own words subsequently defend or at least justify MOST of Jackson's cinematic decisions, would you read it?

There are great discussions on here about why Jackson did this, or why he didn't do that but if you could find, in one place, all the criticisms made about the movies and a Tolkienian justification for them, would you be interested? Specifically what would you want covered in such an analysis?

Thanks for the input.

    I think this sort of endeavour has merit when the two works have a great deal of similarity or qualities. ElendilTheShort Send a private message to ElendilTheShort Mar 17, 12:22am
