Great article [In reply to] Can't Post

I said as much in my short post under the link on the FP. I love how what he points out that Jackson did have to work and change to make it work with The Lord of the Rings movies. Not all of its been perfect mind you but I've really enjoyed what's been done as a whole.

As far as The Hobbit book and how I look at it. I love the book but I do think its a weaker story than The Lord of the Rings. I love that it starts out simpler in tone because the world hasn't gone totally dark yet as it does as we work towards the end of it and for a fair part of LOTR. Its a pretty simple story and if you don't read the appendices its not got a ton of detail. So I understand why Jackson has done what he's done as a whole. I also look at The Hobbit as part of a larger tale with The Lord of the Rings creating one giant story. That for me makes for one heck of a reading experience and is turning into one heck of a movie experience.
