There was nothing more unnecessary than Radagast and his stupid Rabbit sled. Also I do wish the Troll scene was more accurate to the book, but it's all about fitting a character archetype, and Jackson wanted people to like Bilbo more without telling the story through only Bilbo's eyes.

Why do I choose to hate this version of the hobbit, but feel that Kubrick's "The Shining" is one of the best movies ever, despite the fact that Kubrick apparently read 5 random pages of the novel and cobbled a script together?

Because The Shining is a MASTERPIECE and the Unexpected adventure (say that again) is going to be as mundane as the LOTR movies are now.

WHY won't PJ make the sequel to district 9????????

Asshole.

Because it would probably suck. I did enjoy District 9 though.

I loved the shining, but no masterpiece stars Shelley Duvall. Blech. Dull flat acting at it's worst. Jack of course is the best, and everything else about this movie was aces.

I watched a documentary on the making, and I swear Kubrick wanted a retarded bimbo to play the part of the retarded bimbo.......not saying that it absolutely worked, but it kinda did.

She looked scared anyways.

Back OT!!!

Phew! I was debating whether or not I needed to go dec 12th's release of the 2nd hobbit experiment.

This, http://insidemovies.ew.com/2013/11/0...bit/?hpt=hp_t5, explaining how they brought in another person from LOST to play a female elf that was never in any of the books, made it easy!

Thanks PJ!

So there was no Elven Guard? I'll have to reread the book again. I could have sworn the dwarves, or most of them, were captured by elves.

Man it bugs me when I am so sure of something and then it turns out I was wrong altogether! I have this recurring vision in my memory of the dwarves being captured and held prisoner for a time by the elves. Ok, so I don't distinctly remember the name of every guard the elves had keeping an eye on them, so I could be wrong after all.

Man, it just seems strange to have these memories of Bilbo arranging an escape by stuffing the dwarves into barrels and sending them downriver to the Men, all while avoiding ELVEN GUARDS...

Yep, I'm going to have to definitely go back and reread that chapter, since it now appears that there were no elven guards after all. It was just something PJ dreamed up for the movie.

Damn. I'm extremely excited to be extremely disappointing when I have to watch elves chase the dwarves in open barrels coming down the river as I saw in a trailer. I'm seriously torn on how I feel about how this movie is going to go down.
