One more reason to dislike Jackson's adaptation of The Hobbit... [In reply to] Can't Post

And the jarringly unnecessary sandworms imported from Arrakis.

Please visit my blog...The Dark Elf File...a slighty skewed journal of music and literary comment, fan-fiction and interminable essays.

Arrakian Sandworms [In reply to] Can't Post

They elicited a groan from me when they appeared. It must have been quite loud.

As far as the reason for his dislike, I suspect it was the "Superman" aspects of Paul MuadDib Atreides. Besides Leto - a woman's name in the Greek legendarium/mythology - being assigned to a man ... Tolkien did know his Greek mythology after all.
