After the publication of JRR Tolkiens life work the trilogy of Middle-earth Sunday Times noticed The world is divided into those who have read The Lord of the Rings and those who are going to read it Today as P Jacksons epic picture The Fellowship of the Ring rules on the big screens all over the planet it would be more true to say that the world is divided into those who have already seen the film and those who are still standing in queues to buy the ticket When comparing Tokiens masterpiece and its screen adaptation you do not have to be a fantasy freak to notice that the two works share most characteristic features but there are also points at which they differ considerably Speaking of similarities it should be stressed how fortunate it is that Tolkiens grand story has not been trivialized and reduced to a fairy tale Luckily in Jacksons adaptation the majestic atmosphere of the trilogy is carefully preserved The script has not been childishly oversimplified the characters often speak in a dignified language of the warriors of old and what is equally important monumental sublime music adds necessary gravity to the mission of saving the world from the greedy and merciless hands of the Dark Lord Sauron the Great In addition the immense fidelity of description brings the movie picture even closer to the unique atmosphere of Tolkiens masterpiece If the Author himself could take a seat in the cinema and watch the idyllic landscape of the Shire snow-clad peaks of the Misty Mountains and horrifying abysses of the Mines of Moria he would undoubtedly smile warmly and puff his favorite pipe with unconcealed pleasure Nevertheless there are also some aspects of Jacksons vision of Middle-earth that would certainly either sadden or even utterly displease Master Tolkien To name but a few he would definitely miss careless hopping and singing of Tom Bombadil and prod Saruman in the role
