Re: The Lord of the Fakes
Thomas S., forgive me for saying so, but your article is one
of the most ridiculously daft and presumtive statements I have ever read.
Why are you dissin' on the cast of characters? i admit liv tyler wasnt the best possible
choice for arwen, but do you seirously believe that you could have put together a better
cast, and made it work?
And why do you say that everyone who appreciates the movie is not a true fan? Have you
even seen the movie yet? And why does it make me less of a fan if i like the movie? I
applaud Jackson for even trying to produce such a movie, and if there are some
discrepancies, I think i'll be able to overlook them for the most part. I am not happy
with bombadil and the downs being cut, but it would have been difficult to portray such
things on screen.
And why are you so adamantly in opposition of Arwen expanding a bit? Do you know that she
is going to be"jumping off the horse destroyng thousands of orcs with a foot on the
ground and the other kicking orcs." or "Will Arwen kill the Master of Nazgul
with a mighty laser gunshot?". Why do you say such things? we dont even know how her
role will play out, and what she will actually do. And the whole thing with it being
hi-tech is just dumb, im sorry, but that is just unnecessary exageration. I think you are
being unreasonably foolish about these movies, without giving them a chance. All you have
seen is some pics and read a couple reports from actors and such.
And one last thing, with the music. Why would they have heavy metal in the sound-track?
maybe something a bit loud or whatever for a pimpadelic fight scene, but other than that i
dont think it would be proper. What's wrong with "folk musicians"?? Are they not
the type of musicians that would have been around in that time period? I would rather have
something that sounded appropriate for the time and setting, than music that i would be
listening to in my room.
But then again, maybe im just weird, and you are the
all-knowing. I dunno...
