Yes, I agree. This was shown to us in the way PJ showed himself in Bree with his carrot. In LotR, he was subdued and benign, whereas in TH, he looks at the camera and takes an angry, 'up yours book fans' bite and walks off. The outside possibility that the movies may bomb was not a concern in the making of TH, whereas it was in the making of LotR.
