I don't somehow think I'm going to be rushing to see this movie. Though it doesn't sound to be as much of a travesty as the now infamous TV movie, here is Ursula Le Guin's response to a viewing of the film. It is, typically, thoughtful, considered and carefully worded, but you can read her disappointment between the politeness. It's hard to watch movies of books you love dearly. I have yet to screw up the courage to see Howl's Moving Castle, and will never forgive Peter Jackson for what he did to Faramir, although he did so much else that was so right.
