Is that your writing or are you quoting someone else? [In reply to] Can't Post

It's hard to tell the way you've framed the post. Thanks for it, in any case.

2004: Here is the link to the essay by a Tolkien fan very unhappy with the films. [In reply to] Can't Post

Promises Kept — Not the good ones, I'm afraid. ROTK-M At Last
https://web.archive.org/...hedain.netfirms.com/
These quotes are found in part 2. Characterization and Plot Evisceration Continues

I don't know who wrote it but read it from an earlier post in April where Solicitir referenced it.

There's enough here to keep you guys writing for some time (she said very sweetly). Knock yourselves out. I have a Hobbit caption to choose. Angelic

Both quotes are not mine. [In reply to] Can't Post

They are from one Joan Barger, fanfiction author of LOTR. They are from 2003-04. IMO, the essays are classic, as are her turn-of-phrases.

Do they have an essay about the hobbit films by any chance?

I think she's right on the money. [In reply to] Can't Post

 And she -and I -could have been pleased: by much better films than PJ made.

Actually, I'm not as harsh about Shore's score, which overall I thought was quite good. However, I will grant that he did overrepeat the same stuff without variation too often (or the sound editor spliced in the same track too often); and I agree that ersatz-Celtic standing in for "olde" IS an overused cliche, and I couldn't stand his hackneyed Exorcist-like shrieking demonic choruses.

It’s like she despised every atom involved in the movies [In reply to] Can't Post

I didn’t think it was possible for someone to be so disappointed with the Lotr trilogy.

My respect for her opinion dropped to zero when I read her alternative TTT movie that she wrote. All those short scenes cut back and forth every 10 seconds or so would’ve been a mess and those constant long zooms across the land to show the geography between each of the storylines was just ridiculous.

Maybe no more a mess or ridiculous... [In reply to] Can't Post
