    I agree, it was a wonderful adaption, but I still think many of his changes were poor ones. My complaints with Fellowship were primarily with what was left out, and I was very happy to see them brought back for the extended edition. I imagine my complaints about RotK will be the same. With those movies, the changes were made necessary by the medium (most notably, the removal of Tom Bombadil and the Scouring of the Shire).

    But many changes in The Two Towers bug me. There was no need for Aragorn to fall off the cliff, or for the elves to come to Helm's Deep. The Ents didn't need to be surprised at the destruction near Isengard and decide to go to war five seconds after finding out. And Faramir didn't need to take Frodo to Osgiliath. It is unfortunate, and it diminishes the movie.

    Not too much, though. Any of the movies is still the best movie I've seen in 20 years, probably. They are unmatched.
