Everything's Just Utter
To read that Tom is taken out, well, I'll just have to say what I always had in the back of my head regarding a film being made from this marvellous story. If it can't be done PROPERLY, don't waste time & money doing it. The journey through the Old Forest is essential; anyone who can read shouldn't have any problems acknowledging that. If the Hobbit's hadn't gone that way, they'd been ripped to shreds way before they reached Bree. Also the swords from the Barrowdowns. Well, anyway, this story shouldn't be meddled and tampered with in this manner. Peace.
