Actually Sauron, the Dark Lord of Mordor does exist and is working in a cinema complex not far from our house (in England). He had his name changed by deed pole. Seriously, it was in the paper.

I still think they should include Saruman's speech from the book, Christopher Lee has a wonderful voice and could use it to great effect.

I like Pullman's "His Dark Materials" Trilogy but my enjoyment of them is somewhat decreased by the fact that in interviews with the author he has always seemed to be quite arrogant.
