Why LOTR Sucks: What About The Hobbit?
January 24, 2012
I’m a minute twenty-two in, and I’m already disgruntled. I remember how much I was looking forward to The Fellowship of the Ring when it came out. I even flew all the way from Beijing to Hong Kong to watch it on opening weekend. But I also remember being pissed off as soon as I heard the movies were being made. Why didn’t Jackson start with The Hobbit? The Hobbit is and always will be my favorite of the books. It just seemed to be the best starting point. Then we wouldn’t need this voice over introduction to the ring at the start of the movie. We’d already know, because we started at the beginning. Oh well. Maybe I’m being unfair. I’m not trying to criticize the decision to make the movie. I just want to look at what makes these movies bad movies, in and of themselves.
