      Exactly so, David. Part of what makes things so frustrating for us (dismissively-so-called) “purists" is that the films’ defenders so completely misunderstand just what are our actual criticisms of the films! These criticisms in fact have little-to-nothing-at-all to do with the addition of an Elf-character — though they certainly have something to do with how little the character of the films’ Elves has to do with that of Tolkien’s Elves….

      It's amusing, but it's not by, for, or of purists.  Look at the credits at the end: they're all Jackson devotees.  This is a Jackson fans' mistaken impression, or caricature at best, of what purists' beef with the films might be.

      Here's a link someone sent me a while back that MythSoc folks might enjoy, especially those who object to Jackson's changes in his latest film adaptation.
