Open minded?

I realize that until the first film comes out, there is nothing much of any real substance fans have to discuss here--so the trailers are going to get a heck of a lot more scrutiny than is normally the case with movie trailers. But with all due respect to the OP, an "open minded" fan does not express concerns about cartoonish characters, too comical a tone, poor CGI, and unrealistic feeling Middle Earth sets two months before the film is released!

It's your right to express concerns about anything. But I would advise "those with concerns" to be careful about twisting yourselves up into knots with anxiety and worry....over a 2 minute trailer. It's a tribute to the genius of JRR Tolkien and Peter Jackson that we all care so much. But discussing concerns based on a trailer that may--or may not--be legitimate issues when we finally see the full feature film is, IMHO, a recipe for an avoidable ulcer.
