What you will find is originally it was only a few dozen Tolkien Fanatics who disliked the films. Then other people who were trying to become fanatics after seeing the film caught on and thought 'If I want to be a true fanatic I should say I disliked the film and thought them insulting to Tolkien'. So now it is trend that if your a genuine loremaster of Tolkien you have to dislike the films.

I fell into this trap the other day, was discussing the films with a friend in my class, and I couldn't just help myself recite all the criticisms that everyone on this forum has with the films, though OTOH it would get pretty boring with us going "yeah amazing films" all the time- not much of a discussion! But still, I felt like such a sheep, for sure! Very Happy

Well, I know people who are critical of the films who would shudder to be described as Tolkien loremasters. Razz Still, I maintain that it is fully possible to enjoy the films and also recognize their flaws. People who point out the flaws only come off as super-critical because the status quo is one of blind worshipfulness towards PJ. Evil or Very Mad

Who's the sheep now? Razz

Well put Petty! How's this idea? You see the movies, knowing no better, and like them a lot. Then you read the books, fall in love with them. Then you watch the movies and feel really diisappointed, knowing suddenly that there are not only flaws, but that it is not a good adaptation of the books. Because you now see the books for how great they are, you find quite a lot of PJ's version insulting to Tolkien's vision. You guys need to learn how to think - I mean it kindly - like we Purists do. Very Happy

Btw Ally, NEVER be influenced by Peer Groups -- err -- at least, never admit you are! Laughing

Okay then ... Peter Jackson is a fat, drama-loving, SFX-wanking Kiwihobbit who wouldn't know a good movie if it bit him in his bermuda shorts!!! Twisted Evil Evil or Very Mad Twisted Evil

Ah! The joy of intelligent and elegant discussion. We should do it more often.

Eldo can be quite impertinent at times, Petty. I see that now.
