Well sh!t!

Too many to reply to.

The crack in back of the cave- in the book, not in the movie.

I thought the 1st Lotr was awesome. Yes arwen was 2 for 1, but I accept that kind of condensing.

It is when sh!t is inserted that doesn't save time or condense anything that I wonder "WHY?"

My mom dressed me as an Ewok for my 2nd or 3rd Halloween and got pictures to boot. Hence why I've hated them ever since.

I watched Hobbit in 3D last night. Thoroughly enjoyed. B+. Not a fan of the slappier characters and the burping contest, etc, but it was very close to what I was expecting.

Right on! I am sincerely glad. But.....see? You "thoroughly enjoyed" a B+.

I was hoping for an A+ (like the 1st LOTR) so while I might have given it a B+, that was still a failing grade for my favorite book ever.

DIE PETER!!!!!

saw it over the weekend. the whole Radagast character is dumb and not needed and completely out of place. the meeting I`'ll let slide cause the Hobbit was written from the Hobbit's perspective. so the meeting could have taken place, just wasn't in the book. i' give it a B. decent film, horrible interpretation of the book.

Sounds like it would have been a lot better if Del Toro had stuck around - and not just because he was responsible for my favorite fantasy movie ever (and in all likelihood my favorite movie of any genre, period). It's amazing how some simple delays can have such an enormous impact on what should have been a historic project. Oh well...

Saw it yesterday, loved it!

Supposedly all the extras not in the original story were things that Tolkien embellished over the years after publishing the original story.

Either way though, I can't find much to complain about other than the rather disney-ish episode where they are falling through the caves, which then translates into the trees.

Overall though, a really good flick that honors its Tolkien roots IMO.

Del Toro is awesome. His touches on Rise of the Guardians make it an amazing film. Seriously.

Which of his was your favorite?

Saw the hobbit movie on Christmas eve. I'm not sure what all the hate is about. I'm re-reading the hobbit as well. The movie does not strictly adhere to the book like the LOTR did, but the hobbit was written as a children's story so that's a good thing in my opinion. Compared to the other movies coming out, the hobbit is a good choice.
