ou wouldn't recommend George and the Dragon!?!?
That is one of the single greatest sci-fi originals ever made! They are so good, because they are so bad, literally. The screenwriting, acting, script, everything is so terrible, that the movie becomes watchable! In my college days we would stay up til 3am watching sci-fi originals and laugh our heads off at how terrible they were.

Why? Because Evangeline Lilly as an elf....

The fact that they chose a female to play the part doesn't surprise me in the least, due to the heavy amount of PC in Hollywood.
So with that in mind, the choice and addition of Tauriel doesn't bother me, provided that her role is not so great that it dramatically changes the story being told. Obviously we can't speak until the movie is out, but just going off of the trailers, it does not appear that she will have any large, story-altering role. That, and the fact that the outfit they gave her looks so darned awesome, makes it easy for me to accept her as a part of the film. I would much rather they add a few things than take away.
The insults against Legolas, however, confuse me. Where, in either the books or the movies, is Legolas portrayed as feminine? The fact that he has long and blonde hair only means that he looks exactly like all of Tolkien's other elves (male or female) would have looked. It seems random and, to be honest, childish to make comments about his masculinity in such manner.
