Thread: What was the point of PJ's TTT's?
If you take a look at the TTT threads here,I think you will find many other share your views about PJ's adaptation. But it is just that, an adaptation based on Tolkien's LOTR. When it comes to the film industry the name of the game is money. It costs a tremedous amount of money to bring Middle Earth to life and consequently, some changes had to be made to draw in as large as audience as possible. That is a hard pill to swallow for Tolkienites.
On a positive note, the films have brought many new readers to Tolkien's world and I am very grateful for that even if I didn't like seeing Elves at Helm's Deep and Frodo and company taking a side trip to Osgiliath.
But Sauron could've thought that Faramir had taken Frodo as his prisoner to Minas Tirith and that Denethor would use the Ring !!
Also, according to Gandalf 'not using to Ring but rejecting it and destroying it' would never come into Sauron's mind.
So, maybe you're a little harsh here...
At least Gollum was splendid!
(plastic merely fixed some language that might offend)
Rednell, I couldn’t agree with you more on your point about the film industry (see my rant about that in the "be grateful you were even able to view TTT" thread).
