Why is it so satisfying to believe the worst of people and situations? [In reply to] Can't Post

Why?

There's nothing negative in what GdT actually says there. He hasn't seen the film because he's been busy with work of his own. Is that really so unlikely?

I'm sorry, I'm not getting at you, but your comment has called out the predictable stream of posts from those who wisely shake their heads and tell us they always knew that the situation wasn't amicable, no matter what was said, they know there were dark dealings behind it, he was robbed....

Sometimes things just happen because they happen. Sometimes what you are told is actually the truth.

I don't think you have any reason to feel sad. Truly I don't. Guillermo put a lot of time and work into the design and I'm sure something of his 'DNA' remains - Peter Jackson says it does, and he should know. But in the end Guillermo decided to step down. He decided. And now he's got on with other things and put it behind him - would people rather he was tormenting himself about something that didn't happen? Maybe he will see The Hobbit when he has time. Maybe he won't. It doesn't diminish him or the film, or point to anything dark and suspicious lurking in the shadows, truly it doesn't. It just means he hasn't seen the film. I've seen John Howe quoted as saying that he hasn't seen the EEs of Lord of the Rings, but I'm sure it isn't personal.
