    @skywise That irritation I can understand... especially when the movie barely even acknowledges the books at all in credits or anything else...

    @mcleve02 That is my way of thinking. I read that he did acknowledge that fact but was irritated because many people, when they think of LOTR think of the film and not the books - and that the studios did not pay the estate a dime for the film even though it was in a contract.

    Tolkein rarely does interviews but if you are interested in reading one go here: http://sedulia.blogs.com/sedulias_translations/2012/07/was-first-felt.html

    Its a pretty good article.

    @skywise Yeah, so he should be a little thankful!

    @mcleve02 Absolutly. Sales for thenovels increased quite dramaticaly when the movies were released.

    3 years agoby @skywiseFlag


    @skywise Yeah, he should be thankful in some ways... I am sure there were plenty of people out there who had never heard of the books, nor the songs written for the books by Johan De Meij... Then they saw the movies, loved them, and in turn bought the books... I understand being angry about things getting changed... but still

    @mcleve02 I wish they were adding some of the backstory from the Simarillion but that wont happen since Chritopher Tolkein has basically shut everyone out from owning the rights to that book and I dont blame him. I understand why e is frustrated with the movies but I love the movies almost as much as i love the novels...differences and all.

    @skywise Yeah, they have no imagination and have no open mind! Very frustrating trying to discuss anything

    I'm expecting a story as opposed to an epic showdown

    @skywise Correction, I am keeping mine crossed as well! I have no idea why I wrote down thinking instead... haha

    3 years agoby @mcleve02Flag


    @skywise That is the fanboys mostly, I thinking mine crossed as well!

    @mcleve02 I have the faith. I have been a Jackson fan since his humble beginnings in B Horror and was surprised when he pulled off LOTR so well. I am crossing my fingers for this. I sense a lot of hate around the web and I think that might be because of his decision to create a lot of extra contect for the movies that are not in the book.

    3 years agoby @skywiseFlag


    @skywise Yeah, I did truly enjoy District 9, but he didn't direct that... I can only pray he is back to himself again!

    3 years agoby @mcleve02Flag

  14. skywise

    @mcleve02 He has done some fine producing work. I mean District 9 was fantastic and I absolutly loved Tintin and cant wait to see how his direction on that series turns out while Spielberg produces. But your right, all he has done is The Lovely Bones and King Kong.

    3 years agoby @skywiseFlag


    @skywise Yeah, I am hoping he feels at home again with these films, because I personally don't think he truly done anything much since... My hope is that because he is in a universe he is extremely confident in, he will do well... that is my hopes with this... I am curious to see how he implements a lot of things.. being this is supposed to be a trilogy, I imagine the films will have to be deep in depth about everything...

    @mcleve02 the thing about the book is that it really is a young adult novel. I read the thing in elementary school and then again in Jr High to get perspective and there are a lot of songs in it and some silly behavior by trolls and dwarves alike. I am interested to see how Jackson walks this line.

    3 years agoby @skywiseFlag


    @skywise Yeah, I definitely want this to be really good, as I do love the book! I guess we will see what happens as we draw nearer to the day ti finally comes out!

    Does that mean that I am unobjective? Absolutly not. When it comes to movies I tend to expect the worst since Hollywood and its Denizens continually shovel out garbage and unoriginal ideas with the occasional gem. So Dont think of this as a fanboy rant but rather a "why dont we watch the movie first and THEN make up our minds" elicitation.

    @mcleve02 I get what you mean. Until LOTR there really never was a high quallity fantasy film that the studios were willing to finanace in such a huge way. That will always make those movies special (with the crazy Oscar count to prove it). So that IS something to have your sox knocked off over. We had never seen the anything like LOTR at the cinema before (and I am talking fantasy epic - not Sci Fi). So now comes along the much older and smaller story of Bilbo and I get why people are feeling this way. It is NOT LOTR. But even though I have reservations about what might have been done to this beloved novel (from my childhood) to extend it to three movies, I cant help but get excited that there is another big budget fantasy coming our way. They just dont make enough fantasy movies IMO that are worth the time or money. It might not be the sprawling epic that LOTR was but Dragons? Singing Dwarves? Elves? Necromancers? Its hard for me to work up any negative feelings - aside from those minor issues I have mentioned in previous Hobbit articles (which I dont want to get in here since I am playing Devil's Advocate).

    3 years agoby @skywiseFlag


    @skywise Oh I know... I just meant that excitement and sp*ce we felt from the first three, that we get when you can just tell, this movie is about to knock your socks off, I'm not feeling from this one... That's more along the lines of what I meant! haha

    @mcleve02 they really arent and should not have that same feel. This is a totaly differnt story.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Consider breath not held. And no offense taken...of course.

    @skywise -- Eh, I wouldn't hold my breath. No offense to you, of course.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx the Hobbit novel is not as epic as LOTR...since that is basically the equivalent of WWIII for us but with 3 films its hard NOT to think it will be an epic (of a smaller proportion no doubt).

    3 years agoby @skywiseFlag


    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx yeah.. sleepers like Django Unchained are going to be the dominating films... Only going to hurt The Hobbit...

    3 years agoby @mcleve02Flag

  26. Nicholaus XX

    @mcleve02 -- I mean, it'll probably be a little above-average(6/10), but I don't think it's going to be the epic everyone is expecting it to be. Which is exactly why I added it to my list.

    3 years agoby @XxNickTheFilmCriticXxFlag


    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Yeah, I really don't think it's going to be anywhere near the level of the original trilogy... The bar is set pretty damn high! haha

    3 years agoby @mcleve02Flag

  28. Nicholaus XX

    @mcleve02 -- Exactly. I hope people don't expect an epic, because they're in for a surprise.

    3 years agoby @XxNickTheFilmCriticXxFlag


    These don't seem to have that same feel as all the other LOTR films...
