warner bros has harmed the franchise Can't Post

theres been some very odd decisions made about marketing and certain film elements that i think stems from the studios influence that has IMO harmed the making of a tolkien film and its integrity.

the way they like to present themselves on social media, and through packaging etc etc heres a few of the ones i can think of now.

taylor swift? bad call

FB hobbit quote 'It's February 14th, so here's a Valentine's treat for the eyes! Elegant elves, dashing dwarves and a handsome hobbit...' seriously?

$100 bluray set for fans, who will have to buy it all again when th eEE comes out.

bad packaging decisions, and completely utterly confusing blur ray/dvd releases

tauriel love story!! studio decision?

did they influence the casting of the non dwarf looking dwarves?

This is a serious journey, not a hobbit walking-party.
