Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

I'm not super psyched about it being 3 movies right now, but in a few years when they are all out on Blu-Ray, I will greatly look forward to having a lazy Hobbit movie marathon.

My daughter was all excited about going to see it until I pointed out that it's the first of 3 films. I've told several excited people this and all with the same result. Disgust.
My mom had the same reaction. She was under the impression that this film would be one and done. Maybe they're not advertising the fact that it will be the first of three parts very well?

Remember how many people were pissed when they walked out of FOTR and it ended on a cliffhanger? People will get over it.

I remember a little while ago, I saw the trailer and saw rock giants in the Misty Mountains and thought "well now they're just padding. No way that happened in the book." Then I re-read it and found out that, yeah, it's in the book.

It's simply not possible to tell this story in one or likely two parts without cutting things out. Now you may think they should cut things out, but he's not really adding things.

Of course, but since the movie won't even be out until next week, I'm not going to make that call yet.

I'm sure there will be padding ... but even so, there's a *lot* that happens in The Hobbit that is quickly glossed over (like the rock giants). It's not a long passage in the book, but to do it any dramatic justice in a film, it would have to take a few minutes of time. Ditto for even smaller sequences like Bilbo's "purple emperors" - which will, no doubt, result in one of those lingering closeups and sweeping vista shots that Deckerd isn't too keen on.

Yeah. There are two options. Pretend something in the book doesn't exist or do it justice. Doing it justice takes a bit more time than it took in the book.

Opie & Anthony? A veritable font of reasoned perspective.

WoW!!!

ETA:
The Viewmaster™ comparison does not impress me. Glad to hear their enthusiasm though.

They sound like fans, and not too much on the 'serious' critical reviews.

Well, FWIW, one them did say that the genre was "not my thing" but still loved it, so that's certainly a plus.
