The lack of respect for the source has reached the level where I fully expected Smaug to be voiced in a California surfer-dude accent and learn an important lesson about sharing and playing nice with others at the end of the third film, which would somehow incorporate a visit from the X-Men and the creepy coin-flipping guy from No Country for Old Men.

Stephen Colbert is one of the biggest Tolkien buffs out there... you'll be very hard-pressed to find someone more knowledgeable and fanatical about Middle Earth. And he loves the movie series. Can't get enough of them. Why? Because he understands what they are. They're movies based on something he has a passion for, and he gets to see visualizations of things he's only imagined.

My point is this: shut the fark up about "changes to the source material" and "lack of respect." You clearly either have no idea what the hell you're talking about, or are just being asses. The movies are adaptations. They're also voluntary. Go read the farking books if they're that important to you, and stop being a dipshiat long enough to realize that those books are in no way affected by the movies. If anything, more people are discovering the books because of the movies.

Idiots.

I actually participated in a 1-day tradition that can never before happen again.  I was in a theater, watching one of the Lord of the Rings movies on the anniversary of Tolkien's eleventyfirst birthday, and I toasted Tolkien with a nice bottle of wine.  It was a nice experience.

Also, this latest movie looks like total schitt.  Turning the barrel ride into a "running battle" just looks completely ridiculous.  Not only that, but the entire Azog subplot is unnecessary and actually diminishes the importance of Smaug.  For most of the book there is only one antagonist, and that is Smaug, who is "waiting" for them at the end of the road.  There are diversions along the way (trolls, Rivendell, goblin town, etc.) but they are just that, diversions.  The closer they get to the mountain the more the tension builds.  Smaug keeps looming larger and larger in their minds.  Now, though, that role is neutered.  Instead of Smaug being the focus of their attention (and their fear) it is Azog who is pursuing them.  I liked the idea of adding in material from the Appendix of the Lord of the Rings, but I think that changing Smaugs primary role to one that is almost secondary in nature just ruins the story.  Forget that it is not true to the book, it is simply bad story telling.  It is almost like Peter Jackson and the writers do not think that the the audience members have a long enough attention span to enjoy a movie where Smaug is a "hidden antagonist" waiting for them.  Well, either that or Peter Jackson got a serious case of butt hurt after watching Clerks II ("Three movies of people farking walking.")

So what if Stephen Colbert is one of the biggest Tolkien buffs out there?  There are plenty of people who are also huge buffs, many of them who know a lot more about Tolkien's writings than he does, and many of them do not like the changes.  Just because he is a celebrity does not give his opinions more weight than that of others.  Additionally, just because you might not want to form your own opinion of the movies does not mean that the rest of us cannot.  So stop being a mindless drone long enough to realize that we know that the books are in no way affected by the movies and that more people are discovering the books because of the movies.  There is nothing wrong with wanting a movie to be truer to the books or to be less ridiculous with over the top action sequences are so needlessly complicated that they are actually boring.

I've read all of the books multiple times, including the Silmarillion. I watched evyer LOTR movie in the theater at release and bought the director's cut discs. Even the 70s animated Hobbit is a great movie, imo. Hell, I even bought a Games Workshop Bilbo figure and painted it.

None of your rambling self-centered vomit of a post changes the fact that The Hobbit was boring as fark, poorly paced, full of garbage scenes with questionable acting, framing, scenery, and effects, and I hope not to have to watch the next two awful excuses for movies (cashins) just because some friend or family wants to.

You brainless asswipe.

No one can fault you for dreaming of the perfect book to movie adaptation. On second thought we can fault you for perpetuating that annoying book lover cliche. We get it the books were better and you don't like jacksons ARTISTIC choices. My friends an artist and I got pissed at him for not getting my junk right in the nude he painted of me. He made me look ridickulous and over the top.

Hmm, it is kind of interesting that I never said that the book is better than the movie.  Hades, I did not even imply it.  I did say there is nothing wrong with wanting a movie to be truer to the books, but that was just a general statement, not a declaration on my part that the book is always better than the movie.

Oh yeah? Well, I jacked off into a pipe, then smoked it wearing an ill-fitting jacket and homberg, while filming myself doing it. Then I filmed a reaction video of me watching me do it. Then I sent Peter Jackson a copy of both of them, and he sent me a video back. Now he's my Special Friend. I call him "Brokeback Bilbo," and he calls me "His Little Samwise."

That was a nice experience too.

I got a real kick out of it as well.

Both fans and actors all seemed to be having a blast watching each others reaction.

Admittedly I was rather disappointed that Xibit didn't show up at some point in the background saying "Yo, I heard you girls like watching Elf and Hobbit videos..." but other than that it was perfectly charming.

It's good to see that you are reserving your judgement until you actually see the movie and Not just basing an opinion on brief clips and whatever information you can glean from articles written about a movie that hasn't been released.

So you implied it heavily and have done so again in this post but wish to tip toe around that in order to be right. Why are you wasting your time on someone who used Stephen Colbert as supporting evidence.

I enjoyed the LOTR movies even if they got on my nerves sometimes, but I still love watching them. The Hobbit fell short, but was still a good movie. The action sequences were so busy at times I felt like my eyes stopped working and everything was a blur. Not to mention the fact that the story progression. I did still buy the dvd and have to say watching it on a smaller screen helped clear up that business.

The action sequences were so busy at times I felt like my eyes stopped working and everything was a blur. Not to mention the fact that the story progression. I did still buy the dvd and have to say watching it on a smaller screen helped clear up that business.


Guess what?  I love the Lord of the Ring movies, too.  I still watch them about once a year.  But, I was disappointed with the Hobbit.  I did not find it to be a good movie.  It was OK, but it was not good.

And I did not imply or state that the book is always better.  That is all in your head.  I know what I meant when I posted it, and your thinking I meant something else does not change my intent.

Don't Lag Me Bro: Wait, nobody has said 'Hobbitseption' yet? Fark, I am disappoint.


They said it, in the video.

Fark, I am not at all surprised at your complete and total lack of comprehension, retention or originality.

natmar_76: None of your rambling self-centered vomit of a post changes the fact that The Hobbit was boring as fark, poorly paced, full of garbage scenes with questionable acting, framing, scenery, and effects, and I hope not to have to watch the next two awful excuses for movies (cashins) just because some friend or family wants to.


I saw the Hobbit on a flight. It was very well suited for that, and killed almost 3 hours.
