Here's to hoping that DOS will be better than AUJ... Can't Post

Why is it everyone feels they have to be negative or positive about the film(s)? I really don't understand. Yes for the most part I am negative about the film AUJ because I feel it was a terrible film in comparison to LOTR (which is the films we have to compare it to) and the Hobbit book (which I do feel is a superior bit of story telling compared to all the made up content Jackson gave us). But I also say positive things about the film too. Almost all of which are about the parts that stuck to the book and told the story I wanted to see. THE HOBBIT.... not the Hobbit plus this or that. I realize its all perspective and some people just don't want to ruin things for them selves or have looked forward to these films for so long they refuse to see the bad choices made in production. Some just want to believe the glass is half full. But there is ALWAYS that other side of the coin no matter how much people wish it wasn't there. The bad is always with the good. if the glass is half full, well in truth, it is half empty. Negative and positive and personally I think the Hobbit has plenty of both.

Maybe with DOS I'll like the film better maybe I wont. I wont know till i sit in the theater and watch it for myself to come to that conclusion. If the tone migrates more towards LOTR and they lay off the unrealistic antics (which I doubt from seeing the trailer), and at least keep the parts of the book they do include a little faithful, just a little, I very well might enjoy it more than I did AUJ. AUJ was great when it told the story of the Hobbit but for me was awful when it deviated into stuff that was complete nonsense(my opinion) to what Tolkien wrote. Those who enjoyed that stuff or were able to overlook it I truly am happy you could, those who never really wanted the Hobbit as Tolkien wrote it and were content with Jackson's professional grade fan fiction inserted where it wasn't in the original story and liked it I'm happy for you too. Those like myself who felt dissatisfied with AUJ try and hold your head up and think maybe DOS and TABA will flow more into the LOTR style and tone and hope that the made up content is less and less throughout the remainder of the films.

                It's because the source material is - frankly - lacking. Estel78 Send a private message to Estel78 Jul 16 2013, 6:58am

                                                                Estel, I agree with you that a faithful adaptation of The Hobbit would be very different from LotR, book or movie. Noria Send a private message to Noria Jul 16 2013, 8:09pm

                                    Probably people walked out of The Hobbit and some probably ask for their money back, which would reduce the box office take. Noria Send a private message to Noria Jul 15 2013, 2:52pm
