Ten Ways to Ruin Lord of the Rings - Daily Radar

The Daily Radar has posted the following as a public service to Lord of the Rings fans:

Please, save your angry mail. We're as insanely manic about the Lord of the Rings movie as anyone. We're not saying it will be bad; we're just saying that sometimes even well intentioned directors like Peter Jackson can turn something beautiful into something miserable. Our b&#,$ still ache from the kicking George Lucas gave them with Phantom Menace, and that should have been a no-brainer.

And you can play along! Here are some warning signs to look for in the trailer.
