    Yes, a certain license was taken... there's no way around that really. Film is not text, text is not film. Most of the changes he made, IMO made for a BETTER set of films that may not have been verbatim-true to the books but captured the essence of them quite well.


    Jury still out on the Hobbit movies though.
    Greetings, Goshin.

    Haven't seen the Hobbit movies yet. You didn't like?

    They filmed in New Zealand, what were they going to do?

    Ship 100's of black people over for the sake of racial representation?
    They could have used black face like the way Hollywood use to do it.

    For a demonstration of life in America before racial sensitivity was a thing, watch The Marx Brothers at the Circus.
