About The Lord of the Rings (movies)
- Tolkien has become a monster, devoured by his own popularity and absorbed into the absurdity of our time. The chasm between the beauty and seriousness of the work, and what it has become, has overwhelmed me. The commercialization has reduced the aesthetic and philosophical impact of the creation to nothing. There is only one solution for me: to turn my head away. They eviscerated the book by making it an action movie for young people aged 15 to 25.
- Christopher Tolkien, Le Monde, as quoted in "Why JRR Tolkien’s Son Hates What Peter Jackson Has Done" by Devin Faraci, Birth.Movies.Death. (9 January 2013)
