The Nitpicker’s Guide to the Lord of the Rings

Picky picky.

The following is a lengthy list of deviations to be found when comparing the text of The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien and the translation of those texts to film as undertaken by Peter Jackson, et.al. Take note, I’m not paying attention to omissions on Jackson’s part (i.e. the obvious: Bombadil, the Barrowdowns, etc.; nor the less obvious, how the party ended up with Bill the pony or the arrows bouncing off Frodo’s mithril shirt as the party flees the Terror at the Bridge of Khazad-dum).
