Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

"The Hobbit - quite good fun." [In reply to] Can't Post

Comparisons to the Star Wars prequel are grossly unfair. The Phantom Menace was dull, lifeless and very badly plotted. The Hobbit has a bit of a messy plot, but it's full of life. For all its flaws, The Hobbit has a fun glint in its eye that sees us through. There is more life affirming joy in just five minutes of The Hobbit than in the whole Star Wars prequel trilogy.

My review. [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, it took me a viewing to let go of LotR expectations and let The Hobbit be The Hobbit. Having done that, I feel that it's the second best of the bunch. Purely as film and not as adaptation, it has a few rough spots but also a joyful heart, good humor, and the sort of world-building that satiates the cynic in me. Great film.

Further ramblings elsewhere. I really like to ramble, guys. It's a thing.

A nice review [In reply to] Can't Post

That line at least sums up what works so well about the film for me. It's joyful.
