Who cares about the movies (both Peter Jackson's as well as Warner

Well, this brings up an interesting theoritical point - can a movie
_ever_ be an adequate transliteration of a complex literary work?

They are different media and I don't think one can *perfectly* depict
all the subtleties of the other. Books leave more to your imagination,
while films cater more to the sensations. Each has a place.
