when my dad got back from seeing the first movie he reported to me that gandalf "falls in a hole" at one point and you don't know what happened to him. so for years, instead of the extremely dramatic actual scene, i just pictured gandalf peacefully walking along one day and stumbling by accident into a manhole-shaped opening in the ground, like in a cartoon. while everyone else ignores him and keeps walking.I read Lord of The Rings for the first time at Christmas. I had been reading it as a child but I was upset when Gandalf died on that bridge in the cave. a big monster kills him. he's not really dead but how was I supposed to know.
But all I said was it was quite strange for Jackson to claim he didn't want to adapt the book and then make it unnecessarily long - how did you get my opinion on goblin nonsense from that?As in, don't tell me you like this goblin nonsense too.
