@simbha

Two reasons come to mind: 1) Isn't that sort of the nature of a "fan film"? To pay homage to the original? Wouldn`t you want your fan film to meld into the mythos and universe you are contributing to? 2) Because Peter Jackson freaking NAILED the characters, why would anyone want to try to "improve" them (not to mention the risk of failing miserably)?

Fair point. But very well done.

It's good - very good, in fact.

The one thing that bothered me was the adherence to the characters` looks from the Peter Jackson film. These filmmakers obviously have the talent to create something wondrous - so why restrict themselves in this way?
