    I saw “The Hobbit” today.
    .
    It was a waste of money.
    .
    Too many writing errors.
    .
    Too many scenes that belonged to different characters, in different books too.
    .
    Too many “battles” that did not take place.
    .
    The digital cameras made even the real New Zealand scenery look like it was drawn for a video game.

    I agree that Jackson blew it again, making Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit, rather than JRR Tolkiens, but it was better than I thought it would be.

    Getting rid of Azog, Saruman, Radagast, and Galadreil would cut over an hour off of the movie, and bring it much closer to the original.

    One thing I don’t understand: when you have hundreds of millions, why not do a movie like the book? The movie is mainly sold to the book fans, so why not give them what they want?

    The difference between Mark Tatulli and Peter Jackson; MT has artistic integrity.

    There’s so many. Why don’t they share?

    I guarantee you that more than half of the people who’ve seen the movie have never read the book — or read it so long ago that they forgot everything that was in it.

    When making a movie the object is to appeal to as broad a base as possible to make as much money as possible


    A movie truly accurate to the source material may please the fanboy contingent, but if it fails at the box office the movie itself is a failure


    I’ve waited so many years to see my favorite books and comic book characters made into movies that I’m not about to quibble about the details

    The only movies that really were like the books were the Harry Potter movies. They were exactly like I imagined the stories as I read them.

    We have different perceptions. I liked the movie, it was gorgeous and the story was altered some since the extra material incorporated into it changed it slightly.

    Not for nothing, Alex, but when is the last time you saw a movie that was 100% faithful to the book?

    This stuff goes on all the time. Get over it.

    And yet every Harry Potter movie was distilled from each book. Characters missing others took their place. It happens in movies all of the time.
