JRR Tolkien was always vocally against seeing his creation as anything other than a book. He was vocally against movies being made while he was alive, and Peter Jackson had more than one struggle with the good professor's estate while working on his adaptation.
Despite Tolkien's distrust of any filmic adaptation, it can't be denied that Jackson's films did a solid job of preserving the spirit of the original text. However, as classic characters from the series showed up as toys or on softdrink cans, and all manner of merch, I could start to see why Tolkien might be distrustful of a filmic work.
I daresay, he'd be livid seeing his life's work reduced to this, though.
