You're Taking the Micky, Right?
I have just read the rumour about re-naming the Orcs to
Hollywood names. This is a joke right? I have no problems with a book being interpreted
into a film, but some care has to be made to ensure the film draws the viewer into the
fantasy. I swear that if I hear the name Travolta mentioned on the soundtrack, the
contemporary reference will destroy my bond with the story. I will be no more than a
person sat in a cinema watching a film. Since I am from the UK, I managed to get past the
Southern Electricity generator I spotted by the Millennium Falcon in Star Wars - A New
Hope. I have never had a problem with the Star Wars films.
