You obviously dont understand the process of film making!
You CANNOT end a 12 hour trilogy, something which spanned 3 years by having the main characters coming home to even more heartache!
Weve HAD the war, weve HAD the death and despair, a Movie like this needs a happy ending!
How would I as a movie goer have felt if when Frodo returned to the shire it had been destroyed!
The very thing he'd been fighting to protect! It would have been an utterly depressing end and made the entire journey feel pointless!
