Peter Jackson, The Hobbit, and Tolkien's Noble Heroes
I want to insert here between discussions of The Iron Lady and Pope John Paul II’s Centesimus Annus this fine piece by Erik Wecks, one of the GeekDads over at Wired, on Peter Jackson’s approaches to his films of Tolkien’s works. For those who love Jackson’s films but who also have regrets about the ways in which he departs from Tolkien’s own approach to his heroes, this is a must read. And it’s not the only nice piece on Wired about Tolkien. See also here.
