I've avoided all recent clips/trailers etc. [In reply to] Can't Post

in the hope that I will be positively surprised in the cinema. But phrases like that are too redolent of the almost universally sh*t fantasy genre - something that Tolkien would have loathed. I really think PJ should have got Stephen Fry or someone equally conscious of the subtler nuances of English to consult on the screenplay and filter out the odd bit of dodgy writing.

Incidentally, in The Hobbit, I also wince when Bilbo says he's 'having a reaction' to the horse hair - it's the kind of phrase I'd expect to hear in an episode of Friends or some other urban modern piece. It doesn't sit well with Tolkien's era at all.

"Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear."
