No matter what the book is, Tolkien, CS Lewis, Rowling , you can never compare a book to a film as when reading we drift off into our own idea of the world we are reading about. Everyone is different, my idea of how Rivendell would be very different to almost everyone else on this site. Its silly to ask for a versus in regards to book and film because its chalk and cheese right from the get go.
I both love the films and love the books as two very different entities.
Hmm... Tolkien versus Jackson.
I think a young Tolkien could put Jackson to the canvas in, let's say the second round or so. Tolkien played rugby... hmm... although maybe a younger Jackson did too?
Oh I can't tell. But I'm still choosing Tolkien, third round K.O., just because.
Jackson was probably a pretty big dude when he was younger. Also NZ folk are pretty hardy folk, wouldn't be surprised if he played Rubgy as well. However Tolkien would win in the imagination department, so he'd catch PJ off guard I'm sure...
Place your bets here folks!!!
