Shippey on Tolkien and the movie

I figure it's worth reading anything Shippey has to say about it.

- Nice article, and I'm heartened that Shippey agrees with me that "the message
survives the change of medium." And I was glad he talked about how Tolkien
handles the sack of Isengard in flashback, since that was a point we
specifically discussed in my Tolkien class.
