Clash City Farker: Night Night Cream Puff: 95BV5: Skyrmion: fusillade762: To be fair LoTR had it's own relatively irrelevant side plot.

Which is also an answer to the people saying, "Why not do 'Beren and Luthien?'".

Tolkien pretty much pillaged that unpublished story of his to create the elf / human romance of Aragorn and Arwen. So really, it's like we've already seen it.

Unpublished?

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tale_of_Beren_and_L%C3%BAthien

J.R.R. Tolkien never published the story himself, that was the doing of his son Christopher. The real answer to "why not Beren and Luthien" is "the studio doesn't have the rights."

Jackson might buy the rights one day with all his billions. It would make many more billions because the story includes vampires and werewolves.


The Tolkien estate isn't happy with the movie studios so that's not likely to happen any time soon if ever.

swaxhog: The Hobbit looked like a first year college class project.


I agree 100%. Just awful. And the trailers for Hobbit 2 don't look any better, actually a bit worse. Especially with the high frame rate showing, it'll look beyond terrible.

How is it we went from Jurassic Park, to X-Men, to LOTR... and now we've had a decade of sh*tty ass decline? I thought CG would be indistinguishable from real life by now.

ZeroCorpse: doctor wu: First one was great, moved fairly quickly, lots of action, looking forward to the second. My problem with the LOTR flicks was all the painful whining hobbit scenes: "Oh Master Frodo, I love you so much.....blah farking blah blah." I wanted to kill myself. The battle scenes were monumentally badass and most of the acting was phenomenal, but way too much time was spent on hobbits balling their eyes out. Thankfully the Hobbit films seem to be free of that melodrama.

Just a note for your future writing attempts:

Bawling is crying.

Balling  is either slang for playing basketball, or slang for intercourse.

By using the latter word, you have painted a truly disturbing picture.



Aha, you are correct, sir. Duly noted.

Go watch a Michael Bay movie and shut up.



Ok, little man, whatever you say.
