Well, we finally got to the end of this interminable montage. Is it the longest montage ever? Someone needs to google that for me.
I’m a little unhappy about the early glimpse of Gollum. Yeah, we didn’t see him for more than a couple seconds, but that really should be the biggest reveal of the movie. Don’t give it away in the first ten minutes. That, my friends, is what we call blowing our load.
I have a confession to make. As much as I hate the trilogy, I’m still looking forward to the Hobbit. Like I said, it’s my favorite book. And I figure Jackson has learned from his mistakes. The fact that it’s been split into two movies is a good sign.
Yeah, I know. I’m hopelessly naive.
