Yousa steala precious from meesa!

I think that Jar-Jaromir belongs in Peter Jackson's film of The Hobbit, if he ever gets around to making it. What is needed instead in The Return of the King is for us to see Aragorn's coronation in front of a crowd of Ewoks.

Actually this is kind of troubling. The first LOTR film was a spectacle like nothing we had ever seen before. The second was more familiar than the first, but was done even better than the original. The third one has a title beginning with "(The) Return of the..". Until I thought of this, my expectation for the end of the year was another triumph from Jackson. Now I am not so sure.
