      Yeesh! I'm speechless. I mean I knew they didn't really understand
      Tolkien's depths, but "On Fairy-stories" is NOT hard to find. Of course
      if they'd read that they might have been aware of some of Tolkien's
      criticisms of drama and adaptation. But Jackson not being familiar with
      eucatastrophe goes some way to explaining why he had Frodo fight to get
      the ring back.

      Greg Wright of HollywoodJesus.com asked Peter Jackson how members of his
      team handled this in their movie trilogy. When they wrote the scene in
      which the one ring of power is destroyed, did they discuss Tolkien's
      theory of "eucatastrophe"?

      "No," replied Jackson. "What's it mean?"
