Ditto, though my friend doesn't "loathe" the trilogy, he's just really upset about leaving out Tom Bombadil.
As if he's integral to the story or would be worth the extra half-hour they'd need (at least) to cover all that stuff. Seriously, what was Jackson supposed to do? Be completely faithful and make three five hour movies??
