TH : An Expected Journey by Phil Dragash Can't Post

Hi.


I just read this interesting review online by a croatian filmmaker called Phil Dragash, who also happens to be the composer of the much-lauded Youtube Audiobook of The Lord of the Rings with film soundtrack :

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE137F361D68B836E&feature=plcp

Heres his review :


http://phildragash.com/hobbit-review


A very interesting read as he is very articulate sharp and he brings up many important points about this film. My favourite bit was :


"Richard Armitage is perfectly cast... as Bard. But since he isn't Bard, he's – in my opinion – not as good as a 200-year old Dwarf King being that he is clearly not 200 years old in the film and unsurprisingly has less to do emotionally than the real Thorin from the books. All he primarily seems to do is scowl and stare. His look (and Fili and Kili's) is also severely misinterpreted as anything dwarvish and simply reeks of “4-Quadrant-Audience-Appeasement”. There was nothing engaging about him, nothing I can see that matches with much Tolkien wrote, and his relationship with Bilbo is also underplayed and ineffective. It almost felt like he had to recite lines from a script to dislike Bilbo – because I sure didn't feel that he disliked him at all, sans that he had to"

Also, love this :

"It's going to be a weird psychedelic bunch of Hobbit movies that fangirls will go “Thorin is so epic and beautiful” with"

Tongue

What do you think of his comments on the screenpaly writing? The music? I certainly was underwhelmed by the soundtrack, though i love many of the tracks...


PS: If you read this Phil, I love those sketches! Thranduil and Gandalfs are hilarious.Laugh

Vous commencez à m'ennuyer avec le port!!!
