"One final point... don't the Ents have green eyes? or at least a green spark or flicker in them."

Ah, don't we all then? Green eyes indeed! Everyone who has read or posted to this conversation wishes he or she were given the time and money/resources to impose our own version of Professor T's masterpiece on the world.
All this railing against the efforts of Mr. Jackson comes from pure envy. Everyone who has posted here has met Tolkien in the thickets of his own work–his own imagination. We have credentials: we know what he was really saying, we lived it, and we know best how to render it cinematically.
The critics missed the point and the value of Tolkien's work, the first time round, and the loyal, passionate readers made it live. It became an underground classic, with a huge "cult" readership. Peter Jackson is a member, just as we are, of that cult. We may quibble with his choices, but we must admire (love) his vision, for he has kept the works alive by inviting more to read.
This is the real "Fellowship of the Ring".
