*On the above agenda suggestion I think those articles are not impartial (in my opinion): there is a clear pro-Tolkien bias with value judgements ([[Tolkien vs. Jackson: Major Differences Between Story and Screenplay|this page]] in particular) and I think they should be re-written; Sometimes it's not overly blatant, but in many areas there is an implicit snobbery against alterations the films made; even the titles of the articles seem to suggest that battle between the two and that one is incompatible with the other. At the very least I think all these articles need to be tidied up. --[[User:Mith|Mith]] 14:18, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
