Is Bilbo supposed to be the star of this movie? Judging by the trailer and especially by a TV spot I saw last night (a lot of Legolas in a cliched love story surrounded by really fake looking CGI), it doesn't appear that way. Proving that Jackson was full of shit when he said that he made The Hobbit a trilogy so that the "full story of Bilbo Baggins" could be told. I really want to be excited about this film but because of the garbage that was the last film, I can't. Middle-Earth looks so completely fake now with the nonstop and really awful CGI. Peter Jackson has become the thing that fanboys hate the most...George Lucas. Then you have Thorin Oakenshield. I thought he might be a breakout character when I saw the first trailer but he's a brooding fucking bore with no charisma whatsoever and this trailer just reaffirmed that. Another three-plus hours of watching him brood his way through another film with a grumpy look on his face the entire time. Borin Oakenshield is a better name for this absolute bore of a character. So we'll be treated to another bad CGI snoozefest with The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug, all so Peter Jackson can celebrate his now-awful flimmaking ability and make another three hour plus movie. This film will basically be three hours of Peter Jackson masturbating onscreen.
