Oh, there are lots of changes, and lots of reactions, in the field.
"Orc" in particular seems to have undergone a shift from Tolkien's
"low-class brute" to something more like what tvtropes.org would

And almost nobody gets Tolkien's elves right -- they tend to look
more like "woods-dweller with bows" than "immortal artist"
