There was a lot of initial moaning from Tolkien devotees that the films had cut this or that -- Bombadil, in particular. I went back and reread the first two books after seeing each film and I think PJ made excellent choices.

It is NOT important to get every word, every character Tolkien wrote on the screen. What matters is to get a watchable film that can be understood by those who have never read Tolkien and those who haven't read the books in decades -- probably most of the audience.

And to do it in a reasonable time before family members file a missing person report

I agree with PKGirl here. The whole Tom Bombadil section of the bok is out of kilt with the rest. It would have shown even worse in the film.

As a character though, he is still interesting

Moved this thread to character discussions where it belongs, Sorry folks

I love the queer dressing fool

No, truthfully, I did like his character. He was a nice contrast to the rest of the people in the story. I thought it was reassuring to have at least one person who wasn't terrified of the ring or it's power.

According to PJ (in TTT commentary) there is an homage to old Tom in the extended cut when Treebeard expresses Tom's attitude about the world. You just gotta pay attention to the extended cut (in which they also added that bit about Aragorn's age :naughty: )
