Every version of Blade Runner is almost good but none of them are.

Tom Bombadil was an essential bridge between The Hobbit and LotR, as the characters went from the child-like wonder of the Hobbit to the dark and high-stakes conflict of LotR. Just as The Scouring of the Shire was essential for the characters' homecoming.

If Peter Jackson had done things right, he would have made 4 movies, the first would have been called The Hobbit, it would NOT have had Radagast on a rabbit-drawn sled, the second movie would have had Tom Bombadil, the third movie would NOT have had an Elven army at Helm's Deep, Faramir would NOT have tried to take the Ring, and the fourth movie would have had The Scouring of the Shire.

(Yes, yes, I know, PJ didn't have the rights to the Hobbit at the time. I'm saying what the ideal would be.)

My most recent reading made much more of his bit, and it felt pretty sinister instead of childish.

My ideal Jackson would just not have had Legolas's character pander to the X-Games generation and Gimli wouldn't have been comic relief.

To this day I can't read those names without thinking of the Lampoon's "Bored of the Rings" characters Legolam and Gimlit.

I sometimes lament that my childhood came after Lampoon's heyday. Or maybe that it just never penetrated to easily-countable-stoplight-town South Carolina.

I miss 2016, when they said that a Clinton win would out a taco truck on every corner. Were it not for Russian hackers I'd have a taco truck across the street right now :(
