    This. Modern adaptations tend to produce more misses than hits. Dramatically more, and the misses aren't close ones. I have minimal faith that this is anything other than Amazon attempting to cash in on Tolkein's work while phoning in the actual work.

    Based on Amazon's track record with fantasy series, I expect a homosexual elf sex scene about halfway through.

    At this point I'm just hoping it's elves and not dwarves.

    Tolkienís estate kept them on a pretty tight leash. Maybe it will work out; the writers and directors seem to be a bunch of secular muggles, but that was true of Jackson and crew and they didnít trash it.

    I'd rather do dental work on myself then give Amazon a cent.

    I'll just find a book

    They came pretty close with Five Armies IMHOÖÖ

    I share others concerns about the injection of modern sensibilities, most of which run counter to Tolkienís own as you well know.

    The "Hobbit" movies were shockingly bad.
