:lol: :lol: Nope ^^ I'm sure there were other adaptions in those years that were better adaptions, and more true to the books. But they never meant to make an adaption, think I've said this before actually, but movies based on the books instead, which are two quite different things. The result is loved and obviously hated as well :lol: Can't blame them for doing what they wanted to do though :P
[quote="pettytyrant101":180u0e5v]"I guess I can understand why they did it" Is it because PJ wouldn't know an adaptation if it won a World's Best Adaptation pageant and came up to him wearing a World's Best Adaptation winners sash holding a World's Best Adaptation winners gold cup engraved with the words 'World's Best Adaptation Winner' and tapped him on the shoulder and said "Hi, I'm an adaptation!"? :twisted:[/quote:180u0e5v] No, it's because including the Scouring would have destroyed the pacing of the film, and really wasn't necessary to include. :roll: [b:180u0e5v]GB[/b:180u0e5v]
Not even putting a brilliantly visual and important scene like the Scouring in the movies could have saved them, unfortunately.... <img src='/images/smileys/sad.gif' border='0' alt='Sad Smilie' />
[quote="Gandalfs Beard":1c423t0r]No, it's because including the Scouring would have destroyed the pacing of the film, and really wasn't necessary to include. :roll: [/quote:1c423t0r] I really have to wonder why the filmmakers - who went out of their way to add these all-important character arcs/journeys for other characters - were so nonchalant about removing the end of the four Hobbits' collective journey.
Indeed, what a beautifully insightful point, Eldorion - but don't expect GB to see it... :?
