    If a woman was one of the main characters it would. That doesn't much matter after he added a character out of nowhere in the first movie.

    Read it to a child- bed-time stories. That's how to get through it as an adult.

    So then it isn't racist, it's sexist!

    It's homophobic because it never discusses or indulges in the sexual tension between Sam and Frodo.

    The book doesn't have any female characters at all. When you see that female redheaded elf in the next Hobbit movie you can be assured that Jackson made her up.

    What I said was that he screwed over the books, meaning that the movies are no where near as good. Changing who said what ruined the movies. Making Gimli a comic distraction in the movie ruined the movies. Taking out entire chapters ruined the movies. Making the battle of Helm's Deep 1/3 of the movie when it is 1/30 of the book ruined the movies. so yes... Adding a female character would ruin the movie.

    You take me too seriously. I'm just having some fun. I really don't care that much about Lord of the Rings.

    Maybe you shouldn't see the movie then.
