It's called artistic license/interpretation. That is what a film maker/writer does, takes a printed story, converts it into a filmable screenplay and shoots it. If you do not like his artistic interpretation then you are of course entitled to such. But HE is entitled to bring his vision to life and he did so with the blessing of the JRRT estate. So I'd say he did the best job he could and if it wasn't for him we'd have NOTHING.

If you think you can do better then I certainly encourage you to write and film your screenplay. I'd certainly be interesting in watching it.
