      Why am I not surprised? I respect Rushdie, but he's part of the PC apex, what I call the glitterati nestled in NY, Hollywood and other elite places. In those areas, JRRT is often looked down upon. I sometimes find Rushdie's writing pompous. ---djb

      Subject: [mythsoc] film adaptations


      Since this topic has been discussed at great length in regard to the
      Jackson films, I hesitate to bring it up again...but there is an
      interesting article in today's Guardian by Salman Rushdie, well, I
      guess interesting to film buffs, for it is very, very long. I kept
      reading, however, wondering if he might mention the Jackson films and
      indeed he does, in the 22nd paragraph, opining that Jackson's cinematic
      style is preferable to Tolkien's writing, which he calls pompous and
      some other things. Disgusted, I stopped reading there, but others may
      find his views on literature-into-film worthwhile. Here is the link.
