Very much looking forward to Martin Freeman's adaptation of Bilbo.
At least a MATURE actor taking up the leading role - you might curse me for this, but I always found Mr. Wood's adaptation of Frodo in LoTR being completely over the top, with all the whining, falling over, and turning out a complete WHIMP at times - the most horrible scene being 'sending Sam off home' at the Stairs of Cirith Ungol, which, imho, BOOK!Frodo would never have done, and coming close to Character Murder. I don't blame Mr. Wood for that, I do blame Mr. Jackson for directing his persona to a juvenile audience a lot for that. Most definitely not how I depicted Mr. Frodo from the books - quite a genuine hero, really.
(just my personal opionion of course)
Hope Mr. Freeman does a better job, and according to the (slighly) positive reviews in the newspapers over here so far, he does.
I have a lot more gripes with Jackson's LotR, most of all them being idiocy of 'Brego-the-wonder-horse', Arwen
, etc., but don't get me started on it all.
I do respect him for having made that trilogy at all, don't get me wrong - it remains a pleasant watch whenever I see it again.
