Too true. Not sure what I'd do if there wasn't anything to complain about.

The piles of gold is the only thing where PJ stayed true to Tolkien's original vision - even if, typically, he got a little carried away.
Even if to the letter of the book (and I can see a floor in that picture }, with all of the other changes PJ made, then if there were too many coins in the text, why didn't he dial it back?
There is naught that you can do, other than to resist, with hope or without it.
