In This Universe [In reply to] Can't Post

where somehow critics just did not want this movie to succeed. It may be that critics were eager to knock Jackson down. It may be me but many negative reviews I read had that flavor to them

Then there is this: I started reading reviews as soon as they were available and the first thing I noticed was how many of them carped about the 48 FPS. They gave the movie low marks because they didn't like the format. And not liking the format lead them to not like other things. And Boom! a less than stellar review.

And finally: If people only read the headline of the review and not the body of the review (and we know that that is true of news stories) then what they would see is that AUJ is "not as good" as LOTR. So they don't go to see the film.
