And the quality of AUJ in general. Even the news article on this site dances around the subject of disappointment. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there will be some gems here and there. The scene with Elrond and Bilbo is great! But it's frustrating at the same time. Why was dwarven slapstick chosen instead of a beautifully poignant and whimsical scene?
I can judge it based on the quality of AUJ's home video release
Sorry to be blunt, but if people want to accept any cheap product a company puts out, then don't expect the film industry to improve at all.
I wasted all my positivity in the build up to AUJ. I was nothing but positive.
How can I give them the benefit of the doubt when everything I've seen so far has proven the opposite?
You're right, I haven't seen it yet. But I'd rather be pleasantly surprised than to get my hopes up for a sub-par product.
