(The Middle Earth Era) - From Ancient Realism to CGI -> #positivity Can't Post

so................................. i'm going to skip my feelings regarding THE HOBBIT vs THE LORD OF THE RINGS as much as I can. I LOVE the hobbit film and cannot wait for the next, but i've still been struggling with what i loved about LOTR films. Realism and how I felt it actually happened, the antiquity.

So how can I start accepting this and begin to move forward??? I don't want it to ruin these movies for me, because they really are good. I love them and will love them.. It just stings a little to see all the CGI, the fakeness. Because I wanted these to match what I loved about the prior middle earth I was used to. I missed the ART.

Any suggestions??

when we show these movies to our kids one day, they will be buttered up more by all the video game feels to better want to sit through to LOTR films?

lol... i'm just free talking I guess. I just want to get over this CGI disaster and see the positive somehow and could use some help. It burns a little. But, i'm still very greatful for how amazing these movie are and i loved it and loved this new trailer. AMAZING, simply amazing. I just miss my old atmosphere and the realism. :(

        To me, Goblin-town should be dark and claustrophobic and surrounded by low, narrow tunnels. Jackson opens things up to a ridiculous degree, filling the set with catwalks and spans that rival the Moria sets Lusitano Send a private message to Lusitano Jun 17 2013, 8:21pm
