Marwhini has just left Hobbiton.
That interview answer is what you call "Hollywood Apologetics."

One of the "Rules" of Hollywood is that you are never allowed to speak disparagingly of other's work.

I have found that this rule also applies in Academia to a great degree.

Patrick Curry has some interesting views of Tolkien and Middle-earth.

And while his explanation of the changes Jackson made to Tolkien's works are Valid, they do not look to be Sound.

And, his contention that Jackson's treatment of Tolkien was "Respectful" is not really supported by any evidence at all. It is nothing than a bald assertion.

Jackson may have thought he was being "Respectful."

But what is it they say about the paving of the Road to Hell?
