The Dead [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, I think what you're describing works better. Of all the translations from book to screen, PJ was least successful at adapting the Dead Men of Dunharrow (his Gothmog leaves much to be desired as well). For someone who loves horror, he utterly failed to convey any sense of that with them. A skeleton army would've been amazing. But even the ghost army he created would've been fine (minus the green) had he actually made them terrifying, which is how they're depicted in the book. The whole "scrubbing bubbles" (you'll have to be at least 30 and American to get that) imagery was just silly. Ah well.

I think the two upcoming Hobbit films are going to be amazing (there I go raising my expectations again!)
