I think Tolkein was wrong about the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, but correct (in his prediction) regarding The Hobbit.  Jackson added combat, took songs out, and added entirely new story elements to add even more combat into it.

His opinion is meaningless to me.  Did he ever even write a book?  Did any of the Tolkien kids/grandkids take up J.R.R.'s legacy and start writing more books in the Lord Of the Rings universe? 

I would take his opinion seriously if he was like Brian Herbert (Frank Herberts son) who actually continued writing more Dune books (and still writes them) after Frank Herbert died.

 Christopher was the editor of all his fathers posthumous work. Notably he put together The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, The History of Middle-earth and The Children of Húrin from his fathers old notes. He also helped his father prepare LOTR.

While I think his opinions on the movies is silly, he is undoubtably the most knowledgeable living person regarding his fathers work.

The Silmarillion is awesome in general imo: When comparing to the LOTRs makes the LOTRs sort of fractal sub-story.

(That innuendo joke was well played earlier).

Anyone seen it?  I saw a terrible review, stretched out insanely.  Now I read the book at about 12 which was a long tim ago, have no urge to see the film.  Dam the last prequels I can think of- shit they were.

So they take the parts of the books, explain the story in a faster manner, and have the major action scenes. I don't see the issue. It wasn't marketed as an action film. I think the hobbit had maybe 4 or 5 actual action scenes that lasted more than 30 seconds. They always have been very slow, and that turns quite a few people I know off of the films. The environments in the films, and the way all of the characters look and act are exactly how I expected them to be in movie form.

There are things not in the movies that were in the books that I miss, but all-in-all, the movies did the story well. I was pleased.

They could have been awful.  The first film, the horse chase was amazing, then got a bit CGI heavy for me.

He is an 88 year old man, many old people don't want to accept that movies generally look different than in the 50s-90s.

Movies in the past contained just as much action scenes...they just looked very differently.

And there is the fact that he is disappointed he didn't get money for not writing the books and not directing the movie. That poor guy isn't even a billionaire...I'd sue the hell out of New Line Cinema too.

So you blame it all on Cameron and Terminator 2.  That is a bit of a leap.

To me the tl;dr version of the article is:

Tolkien wanted to create a book that few people would read. The publisher made him write a book that would appeal to readers. Jackson made a movie of it to appeal to moviegoers. This goes against what Tolkien wanted in the first place, but is a perfect fit for what he eventually wrote.

but no good book is designed for film, but the best films come from good books, if you want me to list- no can't be bothered, can if you want but really don't wanna.

well if you are going to force me: -

Shawshank redemption

Godfather

Jaws

Mrs Crimble's big day out

A night at the museum

Davey Locklace licks her face

Shaving Ryan's Privates

I could go on... do I need to?

Christopher Tolkien is a spoiled little bitch who needs a punch in the face.  For years he's been taking people to court over nothing simply because he thinks his daddy's stories are just for him and no one else.  He's a vindictive sociopath that has done nothing but hinder the Tolkien Society.

I think someone should point out to the "family", the stories were aimed at pre teen and young teens.   That the author's "family" is not raking in the cash is not the fault of anyone but themselves.  Personally, I find it typical of today's ideals.  Everyone thinks they are entitled to something because someone else did some work.  If the "family" wants to make money, the "family" should get off their lazy arses and do something.
