Peter Jackson is awesome...one of the finest film-makers in history. And his version of LotR is brilliant. Very Happy Wink

You know, despite my criticisms of PJ, I can't disagree that much with that statement. But I still think he should have stuck closer to the book! Evil or Very Mad

oh dear!
which side do I choose?
In the absence of Petty I feel I should say Bah Humbug - what they did in messing with the story was unacceptable Evil or Very Mad

I suspect Petty will have a fit of crabbitness upon reading this thread Very Happy

Hogwash! I'd say if they had put those scenes in, and created a inarticulate movie with unjointed characters and themes, that would be unacceptable! Very Happy

Now now, you know we purists (as I'm speaking as one for the present) don't believe the book should be put word for word on the screen, some things will need changing in the interests of film. But not changes to the characters or story arc that fundamentally alter the story!! Mad

What in the name of Mordor is going on here?
I know we came here for freedom of speech but freedom to dribble unreasoned madness? This surely is a step to far, beyond the bounds of good taste even. Take care kafria, within here madness reigns with beguiling speeches.
Your liberal Pj loving words are to my ears as the flatulence of Morgoth is to my nose!! Evil or Very Mad

I've never said this about a Woman before, Kafria, but I think I love you! A Female Purist! I think I'm in Heaven! And Mr Tyrant at his obnoxious best! Perrrrrrrrrfect! Very Happy

Obnoxious! Can you mean that in a good way? I just call a metaphorical apple an apple and not a pear. Unlike these crazy liberals who can perform double-think and sit watching PJ's abominations saying 'oh its wonderful. He's captured the book' whilst watching something that's not even in the bloody book! Twisted Evil
Now that, surely Odo, is what is obnoxious here? Very Happy

Love your hairy feet Odo! Very Happy


And Petty's absolutely right! There's nothing obnoxious about taking a strong position and sticking to it Razz . I love PJ's version of LotR and I'm sticking to it! Wink

And by the way Petty, isn't having a bigger Avatar awesome? I love the landscape. Wouldn't have had a proper view of it in a tiny little Avvy.

Yup! Loving the new avatars size and the embedded video thing too! The pic is one of my own created in Terragen2- its a bit squashed hence the slim pointy trees- but still good to have the bigger size. Very Happy

I've kept my (recovered) photo (avatar) small, as it fits with my reputation for meekness and humility, and because I don't know how to make it big. Smile

I used this site to make the picture larger, though that caused it to be a little pixellated. I understand if you prefer the smaller, clearer version, but just in case, but here you go. Wink

Do you remember where you found the originals of those images, Odo? If so, it'd be easier to make 200x200 versions. Smile

I'm not sure what happened to Balin Banks (never got on with him/her personally, for a Banks he/she was a bit, off) but still in case they ever show again.
