Movie directors are more concerned with doing their best to make what they think are good movies than with remaining perfectly faithful to some source material or another. What a shock.I'm tempted to ask why the hell it should be otherwise, but, well, some litetal-minded dolt might answer the question.-- Phil Masters
The quote amused me. No particular significance beyond that.
I'm sure that skateboarding elves who indulge in poorly-rendered "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" oliphaunt hi-jackings and looking like Sophie Aldred on a bad day are exactly what J R R would've wanted.
I guess what ultimately irritated me most about the movie was how it was stereotyped so horribly by modern D&D. I mean, D&D was supposed to be influenced by LotR, not the other way around.

Did Davies play the Dwarf in that Horrible D&D movie...I could have sworn that he and Gimli were the same character.
No, the "Dungeons and Dragons" movie didn't have the budget to do the height-wrangling mojo that Peter Jackson worked, and John Rhys-Davies is a big fella, not dwarfish at all. Elwood, who I think was the dwarf character (I'm guessing here), was played by Lee Arenberg.
Sorry for posting that three times...it's not that I thought it was that clever of a comment, it's jsut that I got overly happy with the browser button.
Ps. I realize it was two different actors. I was just making a futile attempt at cleverness.
