I think you've nailed it. The Hobbit is such a terribad adaptation that there is barely anything to compare to the book. With LotR, we had 10 hours of things that happened in the books.

A lot of our complaints with Lord of the Rings movies were very nitpicky, rather than actual issues. By looking at them from a purely theatrical standpoint, they were very good movies.

But were the awesome fight scenes worth all of the other fails?
The 'leave Sauron to me' bit sounds like it's very misleading, as that is not how Saruman betrayed the White Council, nor when. His...

AS Inziladun has said, it's very unnecessary. What even could they do? Aragorn's younger years weren't all that interesting, and after Return of the King, Middle Earth was mostly peaceful.

I don't think Aragorn spoke about him at all. The Northern Sea-kings don't seem like they would have known about him because he wasn't the sort of person to venture anywhere outside of the Old Forest.

But he did serve purpose to the plot and atmosphere. Without Tom, the hobbits would be stuck in a barrow, or imprisoned by Old Man Willow. The Witch King would not have been defeated without the...

This sort of forced logic is what I don't like about the Bombadil discussion. Theorizing is one thing, but claiming what you say is true based off of convoluted logic is ridiculous.

So, it's 'answering' the age old discussions of Balrogs having wings and Tom Bombadil?

Lies. We're not going to have enough evidence to prove anything.

I don't even think half of them have been mentioned by name since the first movie. It seems ridiculous that they tried to characterise some of the dwarves, and leave the rest to rot. I understand...

I assure you that voting for either myself or Aganzir is a terrible decision, unless you are a cobbler or a wolf.

EDIT: X'd with Nerwen

There is about a minute left. Your chances do look quite grim. I would recommend voting for Boro, as he has not done much talking, and he isn't me. As Shasta has stated before, voting off someone who...

Aganzir, if you are Galadriel, then I deeply apologize. If you are not, it was a worthwhile last-ditch effort.

McCaber was implying that those who are talking are more likely to be wolves or gifted, which seems very logical. Your neglect to mention that he suspects you of being a wolf leads me to a conclusion...

On the contrary to McCaber, I don't believe Aganzir's drunkenness to be entirely false, however, it is true that wolves and gifted always want something to say.
