I don't really have any problem with criticism... [In reply to] Can't Post

It's the tone. The anger directed against Howard Shore and Peter Jackson. It's not that someone disagrees with a decision they made or doesn't like how something turned out, it's that they're lazy and have no respect for fans. Everything someone doesn't like is a travesty. At least it starts to feel that way.

I mean, Doug Adams had to shut his site down it seems and knowledgable people here are staying out of the discussion. On some topics, you can't really have a proper discussion.

All I can say is that The Hobbit board seems to have changed massively since the release of the movie. And not for the better, in my opinion.

I mean, other than on soundtrack matters and all things Radagast, I quite frankly agree with many of the criticisms being leveled. I would have preferred a version of the story sticking much closer to Tolkien's mythology, as much as it scares me to sound like a purist. But the way in which these arguments are presented completely turns me off.

But, I'm just one person. Perhaps I'm wrong.

all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us...
