    Faramir was not as strong and noble as he is in the book.

    Some of the other things that some purists had problems with, such as Arwen at the Ford, or Elves at Helm's Deep, I understood better the reasoning for, and don't think they affected the bones of the story.  But Faramir's characterization rubbed me the wrong way.

    •  Faramir's depiction was my problem also. (1+ / 0-)

      And Arwen with too much and too tough of a part. The Elves at Helm's Deep? Whatever.

      But a twisted Faramir was really too much artistic license.

      And everyone always leaves out Bombadil, because he doesn't "advance the story", and then all that Barrow-wight production time would have gotten expensive.

      Bombadil was nice. A sort of non sequitur of a character, but I liked him.
