Y’know, up until now, I thought Peter Jackson was doing a pretty good job with the “Lord Of The Rings” series. I mean, I loved those books. They were a major part of my childhood, you know?
And I loved the first two movies.
And now, the sonofabitch has betrayed us.
He’s adding a new character for the third movie, one that DOES NOT EXIST in the books, for a NEW SUBPLOT that would have Tolkien spinning in his grave.
Apparently, Tolkien’s story just wasn’t good enough. This Enzedd asshead thinks he can improve on it. Either that, or he just wants to completely own the rights to one of the characters, so he can profit like mad off the action figures or something.
ROT IN HELL, YOU UTTER, UTTER BASTAAAAARD!!!
Apparently, this new characters is Jaromir, brother to Boromir and Faramir, and he’s going to be appearing in the third movie and doing something or other. God, I don’t know if I can bear to go on about this. You can read the horrible news here!
That reminds me of the time I was actively writing on my satire sports, website which clearly stated at the bottom “DISCLAIMER: These stories are not true. No really. It’s all just a joke, you know for fun.” Nonetheless, somebody posted a link to one of the stories on a message board thinking it was true. I think it was an SEC college sports board or something. Needless to say he was given a hard time about it.
