It works for me. So far, anyway.

The thing is, that's how I felt right after seeing Jackson's Fellowship of the Ring. In both cases, I'd paid very little attention to the advance publicity, and I wonder if I'd have felt less violated had I known a bit about the kind of changes from the book that were coming.

I was not happy when I left the theater after my first viewing of FotR, either. I've learned to make more allowances for book-to-screen changes when necessary, and to read all the spoilers in preparation for changes I likely won't agree are necessary changes. These Hobbit movies have required more than that, though. I've had to go Jedi for these. They're not the Hobbit movies I was looking for. They're the somewhat Hobbit-inspired movies we're getting. I'm free to walk out at any time. I've managed to enjoy both of them, but not in the same way.

FotR was by far my favorite of the LotR movies, and I seldom make it through the series when watching at home these days (which doesn't occur very often anymore), even with the fast-forward function. I prefer AUJ to DoS so far this time around, so the pattern continues. I'll see DoS a second time and buy the DVD to share with young cousins who've read the book, but I'm not at all excited for the third installment of this series. And if the spoilers for TABA really p*** me off, particularly over the few things I actually do/did want to see...I might skip it at the theater, and wait for the DVD. I still hope I'll like it, even if just barely. I just have reeeeally lowered expectations now. :/
