OK now that we have seen all three of the movies, how do you feel about them based on an adaptation standpoint? Do you think that they live up to the books or are "faithfull"to them? I think that PJ has done the best job on adapting a book into a movie, than any other person or director that i know of. Yes, people complain about this and that,"this scene was added, this scene was cut, this person was added here, this person was cut here." But what people don't think about is other adaptations from book to movie that have been made in the past. You can take almost any other film that was made from a book and none will even come close to be as close to the book as PJ's LOTR. In other movies not only are characters changed, but their realtionships with others are changed. Jurassic park and dune are examples of this. Yet there is another key element, which is the "faithfullness" to the feeling and theme of the book. Though jurrasic park and dune were quite different from the books, they still captured the feeling and the "feeling" of the stories. Now people that i know say that LOTR wasn't "faithfull" to the books, and I feel pity for te fact that they are that selfish to think that. What Pj has done is made these movies faithfull to th story line as well as the feeling and the key themes, and has made the greatest movie in cinema history, all in one series. Please let me hear your feelings on this topic.
