I personally never read the trilogy (or The Hobbit which I plan on reading soon). Shameful, I know. I own the trilogy, but alas, have never had the time or capacity to read them straight through. Pop got spilled on my Return of the king. Darn shame too, it's a really nice set. Anywho. I liked how Jackson made the trilogy movies, and was pretty angry when I found out about all this rubbish going on with him and New Line. It just seems like LOTR and The Hobbit movies would be completely unrelated if two different directors made them. They're obviously going to have different views on the books. It all seems a little unfair. After all, wasn't Jackson the one who sold the idea of LOTR to New Line?

It will be completely amazing.
Hopefully one day in the future, before I'm dead (I'm 15 now) The Hobbit will be made and all of these little arguements between co-workers will cease. So let us now pray to God, Buddah, Allah, Ra, or whatever entity you like--that Peter Jackson and New Line will once again love each other and give birth to a wonderful movie called The Hobbit....and yes I know my analogy (metaphor?) or whatever it was was creepy.
baudelaiire: We could still do something ASOUE for Halloween - I feel like something to do with Esmé embodies the Halloween essence quite well

Sherry Ann: Papricot I've seen a general distancing from the books even from fans who separate the work from the author. I think some of that comes from a fear that others will interpret enthusiasm about the books as an endorsement of Rowling's position and / or

Sherry Ann: a lack of awareness of who was offended.

Papricot: interesting, if that's really true for a majority of its fans, though definitely disconcerting (not so much regarding HP, for me, but dealing with controversial authors in general)

Sherry Ann: I agree, though idk if it applies to a majority - that's just been my impression so far.

roxy222: baudelaiire, your Halloween idea sounds awesome. We could have the day in celebration of the firestarters, the inhumane society, the bombinating beast and the great unknown!
