Oh woe! Oh woe! Poor lost Bombadillo!
Sing ours! Sing ours! Alas but 2 hours!
And thought the changes made are plenty,
It seems to me that most are done quite gently

Though nothing else could be done in this situation,
Changes made gently 're like gentle castration!
that all will be pleased chances are slim to nill-o,
but still I do mourn the loss of old Bombadillo!

Since Tolkein does not direct the production,
Or write the script, or be part of the casting induction,
Then there never it could please all by far,
For they are audio-visual different media!

Even if his ghost were writer-director,
No film can capture an epic's sweet nectar!
Even if Tolkein had willed the film's casting,
there would be grumbles from fans everlasting!

A shadow of orc, half done is still not whole,
But more terrifying than a big toothed mole.
And elves can never be chained by eye,
So we would forever no doubt sigh


Going now bubye

Tra-la-la-la-lally
no songs in the valley?
la-la-la-la-lolly
oh what a great folly!
what? no elvish singing
like silver bells ringing
and joy to hearts bringing
with fingers harps stringing?
o! rinka-tin-ka-tin-ting!
oh what were they thinking?

A major change in the film from the book ....Arwen turns up instead of Glorfindel to help them escape from the Black Riders in 'flight to the ford' - actually it worked well because it shows the relationship between her and Aragorn. Apparently she is also in the battle at Helm's Deep in the film. Also, who's Morwen?

:flash:

Morwen- Not a bastardisation of Eowyn per chance?

If so she will not appear until next time around
