Movie-Aragorn: Superhero

Well worth reading: Janet Brennan Croft, Jackson's Aragorn and the American Superhero Monomyth (from "Picturing Tolkien: Essays on Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings Film Trilogy") ... mhaAVK0%3D

Jackson may be a New Zealander, but his mental furniture was almost entirely created by Hollywood, and this I think lies at the root of his misunderstanding of The Lord of the Rings.
