stoli n coke: Maynotlast: "The Hobbit" was a disappointment, but "Ted" is the next rung on our ladder down to "Ow!  My Balls!"  And in the future, all you Fark-Twats who rave about "Ted" will also be the coont-a-holics complaining about the current putrid state of our rancid culture.

Melodramatic much? Ted wasn't everyone's cup of tea, but it's not a harbinger on where our society is heading. It was really the same kind of movie the Farrelly Brothers would have made in the late 90s.


If my comment was to "melodramatic" you should probably get out more.  You might find there are things more creative than Seth McFarlane butt-farking you in the ass and wiping the frothy santorum off with your money.

Onkel Buck: foo monkey: The funniest movie of 2012 was 21 Jump Street.

/fark you, science

I just watched that recently, and I had ti keeo rewinding it becuase I was laugh ing so hard I was missing other jokes. It could have been the reefer but I thought that flick was hilarous!


"Reefer?" (ring) Hello this is the 1930's and we would like our idioms back. Also look out for that Hitler he's a bad egg.

spelletrader: Love both movies, watched them both twice.

Last time I watched the Hobbit the wife and I did a LotR extended version marathon over the weekend.

The Hobbit was a near perfect fantasy movie, I would love to see Peter Jackson turn the Dragonlance books into films.


That would be seriously awesome.

spacemanjones: Ted had Mila Kunis in it. Therefore Ted > Hobbit


Ted was the first time I saw Mila Kunis as a potential fat 40 something with a raspy voice and a shiatty attitude.
Other than that, I agree with the previous commenter who said it was basically a long Family Guy episode.

I love Seth Macfarlane, I really wanted to love Ted. I'm sure he made a bundle, but he's way funnier than this movie. Better luck next time.

My God you are so obnoxious. Not all comedy is deeply intellectual and thought provoking, but I'm confident no one can tell you anything.

I'm still amazed that there are so many people who didn't like "The Hobbit."  I enjoyed the hell out of it.

Yeah, I considered most of it to be pure joy.

eh, the only redeeming feature of Ted was Flash Gordon which, considering the generation this is aimed at, is uhh... psuedo-geek-hipsterish...

Hobbit was okay. As a fan of the book, the first book without pictures I ever read, I was disappointed by the pointless revisions / omissions in the movie. (Changing scenes with the trolls, the Goblin cave, not giving Orcrist and Glamdring the blue fire, meeting Gollum, almost everything with the wargs and goblins, the addition of the Radagast storyline--too much to list... I can deal with Radagast's addition, but needlessly changing the story for no good reason is just hubris. ) I can see the movie needing to be split into two parts, but THREE? Needless Lucasing, IMHO, just for the sake of selling an extra ticket / person. Glad I saw the regular version instead of the hyperframerate spew that some of my friends saw. Will I see the rest? Sure. But still am disappointed in the way things have started.

I'm tired of producers and directors maximizing profit at the expense of the story, especially when it really just makes the movie more expensive to make. They delude themselves into spending an extra $60,000,000 to make $59,000,000 more and because there's really no way to quantify that $1,000,000 loss they aren't held accountable. CGI isn't everything. It's the story that counts.

Wish Guillermo had made The Hobbit.

chiett: The Hobbit movie by Jackson is a piece of shiat.
He wrote so much crap into it that is not in the book in order
to stretch it into three movies and ruined it. Pure greed and nothing else.
I had to ask several times what movie I was watching, because it was NOT
the Hobbit of J.R.R. Tolkien.
I can see anyone liking the movie if they have never read the book.

I loved the scene where Frodo and Galadriel played some "Truth or Dare" and she had to take a crap on the floor.

The Snow Dog: Wish Guillermo had made The Hobbit.


I saw the Stone Giants in the Misty Mountains, and assumed that was Guillermo's influence.

The Rings trilogy dealt with huge ideas and the very fate of mankind was in the balance. Members of the Fellowship died.

The Hobbit is a silly short story about dwarves wanting their gold back from a smelly dragon. They have battle after battle, and nobody dies. They're scaling the side of a mountain, and giants are whipping sections of the mountain around, and none of the wacky dwarves falls off. Right.

I'll wait until all 9 hours have been released on video. Then I'll watch the 2 hour fan cut.

I read Dragonlance when I was around 8. I would literally start jacking it in the theater if they made a live action theatrical film. I heard they did an animated version but everyone said it was so terrible I didn't bother. Who do you guys see as Raistlin?
 
2013-02-03 09:19:05 AM
It is still a wonder to me how Seth McFarlane is still employed.  His shows are all the exact same thing and this movie looks no different than an hour and a half of a terrible Family Guy episode.

This, exactly. I did like the movie, but would have enjoyed it more if I never read the book. And yes, this is often true when you compare books and movies. Not always, though. Blade Runner was better than "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep". I thought The Lord of the Rings was mostly right on target. I think The Hobbit was visually good, but suffered with a bad adaptation of the story. Hopefully the box-office take will encourage them to tighten it up a bit and rein in some of their overenthusiastic storylines and bring them back to Tolkien's pale. Why fark with something that's working? Tolkien already wrote it. Adapt and film it faithfully. You don't need to make the goblins and wargs into daytime raiders. You didn't need to change the wonderful troll sequence in the book. Didn't need to change how Bilbo met Gollum. Damn.

your argument is basically, "it's not the exact same as the book, therefore the movie is bad."  basing the quality of the movie solely on how faithful it is to its source material is stupid.  there are lots of totally awesome movies out there based on books, that have barely anything in common with the book.  just one example, l.a. confidential is an amazing movie and it barely touches half of the book and the rearranges everything else.  movies like the bourne identity and total recall were also vastly different than the books they were based on.  just because it isn't completely faithful doesn't mean it's bad.  all my friends have read the hobbit and they all loved the movie.

crab66: If you have ever watched family guy....it was basically the same thing. Extremely overrated movie.


Its fun to watch the cool/uncool meter swing on the internet, wasn't that long ago where he could do nothing wrong now the fringe who was saying how good he was is now shiatting on him.

Ted was hilarious and not close to a stoner movie since those can't be watched unless high, Ted made us laugh and we hadn't even been drinking.

It's funny now  because most of the people who bag on Seth McFarlane are the same people who biatched and whined to get Family Guy back on the air.

graggor: Pretty sure the hobbit is going to make over a billion dollars....

ted will be around half that?

Strangely a month or so ago, my dad asked me if I had seen any movies lately.  He goes to about one movie a year.  He had seen Ted, I think on DVD at that point.  He explained it was a stupid movie, but also one of the funniest he had ever seen and we should watch it.

Nobody has told me to see The Hobbit.  I also feel turned off by the fact that they turned it into anything more than one long movie, kind of like how they are now splitting the last movie in any book adapted series into two part in an obvious sign of greed.

this is a flat out lie.  I have been reading the book lately and the Hobbit movie ends at about page 60 or so of the book.  There is a BIT added (giving the wolves the white orc so that they have some kind of leader and the dwarves not liking the elves and the bit with the bunny driver) and a bit slightly different but on the whole it was AMAZINGLY close.  so close that I can totally see how they will get three films out of it.

and ted was farking awesome.  and I farking HATE Marky Mark.

A Lie! (except for this and that oh and this too)

Your an idiot. Learn to read. Which by the way I'm sure you did not do with this book.

Really, a Bunny rabbit sled. Jackson must have been smoking something good.
