adaptations... and different mediums [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
I like The Hobbit for all the added stuff. If I want something exactly like the book, I will go and reread the book. Adaptations are always interesting to watch if you have an open mind, because it offers someone else's take on the material -- which is the whole point of adapting something in the first place!


Indeed, if I want to experience something exactly like the book, I will go reread the book.

I always preferred LOTR for tis epic detail. I realize The Hobbit is a read-aloud faerie tale in the ancient oral tradition. I understand where the style comes from (some guy sitting around a campfire telling tales, probably wearing a bearskin and going "BOO! at the apropriate moment).I just prefer the epic detail of Jackson's film. I prefer the fact that the Dwarves all have faces and voices and movements and personalities rather than being rhyming names on a list. Tolkine remains my favorite author and the builder of my favorite universe... but I really really like this film.

Of course PJ can't do the film in each of our heads... he has to do his, and hope we go along for the ride.

Go outside and play...
