Sad Crying or Very sad

oh god my mind didnt even go there ..

Ill never forgive Jackson for glossing over the burial bier of Bormir .. I wept buckets reading how the swords of his enemies were placed under his feet, the horn of gondor across his chest etc.. Such a powerful scene .. and I sobbed and sobbed it touched me so much .. then the movie .. stuck him in a kayak and shoved him down the Anduin Crying or Very sad

Laughing Oh, I'd already forgotten about that. Very Happy I make it a rule to (almost) never point out spelling or grammar errors (unless it's funny). Everybody makes mistakes.

Nope .. cos the difference is that HE did what HE did intentionally Wink Razz

Look dont get me wrong .. I love the movies and Jackson did an awesome job cinematising LOTRs .. totally. And the casting top notch .. love Blanchett's Galadriel .. like who woundnt .. even Blooms Legolas, etc etc .. but this was one scene .. but one powerful scene .. with powerful imagery and it was no mistake that Tolkien invested in that imagery. It was punch you in the gut moving .. and the scene was cut.

The rest of the movie series beyond brilliant .. and Im not a purist just an average LOTRs lover .. and that broke my heart .. Laughing a little ..

I think Jackson would have made a 27 hour movie and included everything if he could have. So I don't blame him for stuff he had to leave out. It may have been "intentional" but it wasn't by choice.

Which ... as he pulls mightily on that cable labelled "OT" ... is not going to be so much an issue for a series, for which I am excited.

Im excited too Wayfriend Big Grin sounds like and hopefully will be awesome.

Id be ok with a 27hr movie Wink Laughing

My criticisms wouldnt have added more than a few seconds to the overall time of the movie Wink I know Im like a dog with a bone with this one. The scene was just sooo powerful in the reading .. and was a key progression in the story for me.

But thank goodness I dont get to make those decisions huh? hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Ok Ill let it go now Wink Razz

Roll on the telly series I say LOL
