Agreed, and they're not just making stuff up from nowhere. While some of the stuff is off-camera (re: the "Necromancer") we know it does happen.

This is Tolkien's story AS told by Jackson. If you're a purist, then I'm sure you will hate it, in which case don't go. For the rest of us, I think Jackson has earned our trust that he will do no harm, and will entertain us greatly with his vision of the story.
