If Peter Jackson took his films seriously -then others would! Can't Post

I loved the Hobbit. But then I watched Fellowship of the Ring last night and it got me thinking...

Some of the inclusions in the Hobbit lost people...big time! I mean, does Peter Jackson want us to be entertained (like the Rings films) or does he want us to laugh? Because if that is the case -go make a comedy! Mad

The critics LOVED the rings films! Why would you go and make the exact mistakes that Star Wars made? (Stupid childish comedy, over-use of cgi, change of tone etc etc)

You made great films and you were rewarded because you took it seriously. No wonder all the critics are giving this film grief, it borders on flat out immature at times. The academy gave Jackson multiple awards basically saying "Your films were brilliant"

Now how did we go from that to "Worst film of the year" etc ...??????? Is it a hate campaign or did Peter Jackson lose people by going too far?

-burping contests
-bunny sleds
-ridiculous looking dwarves
-too much cgi
-Radagast
-slap stick
-the Great Goblin
-one liners just before death
-impossible scenarios

Some of the things that happen in this new film have the FANS (who are the most forgiving) trying to come up with explanations to make these things work in their own minds! Where were the people around him to say "Sorry Pete -that just doesn't work!" ?

Peter Jackson -you didn't take this seriously so no-one else has!

Funnily enough...with several scenes removed the film would have been excellent. Phantom edit time...
