An unpopular opinion concerning Tom Bombadil

Postby Hasan006 » Thu Jul 13, 2017 8:47 pm

I feel like I'm one of the few people who think it's a good thing that they left Tom Bombadil out of the LOTR movies. I liked his role in the books (even though I still think he is a bit overrated), but tbh his appearance in the FotR movie would've been quite distracting and out-of-the-place and would've totally ruined the movie's pacing. Anyone agree with me on this one?

Believe me, cutting Tom Bombadil was one of the least controversial changes Jackson (and Bakshi) made.
