By making crap up.

Howsabout instead of making some of that crap up, Jackson tosses us Tom Bombadil and Goldberry. Just for the halibut. Alas, without the ring to show its lack of power over him, it won't be so special. And if only there were a way to toss in the Scouring of the Shire, which I missed in Return of the King--to me, one of the points of the whole saga was to train the hobbits to retake the Shire and become part of the wider world.

I probably won't mind extra Ian McKellen made-up scenes w/Sauron, Saruman, Radagast, or whoever. Since I experienced him on stage doing scenes from Shakespeare at Brandeis in the 70s, when I lived nearby, I've been a ridiculously huge fan.
