well... [In reply to] Can't Post

It's good to see that there are some scenes you like


I've said several times that the Hobbit is a good film trapped within three mediocre ones (or rather two mediocre and one BAD one).

i liked a couple scenes [In reply to] Can't Post

The good morning scene and Riddles in the Dark. That's it though.

Those scenes were well done. [In reply to] Can't Post

I also liked the Smaug scene...at first. When Bilbo was creeping through the mountains of gold, and hiding from Smaug at first I was thinking, "Yes! Jackson's doing it!"

Ever since that scene in FOTR where Gandalf casually mentions that "affair with the dragon" I had wondered what the dragon had looked like. But then Jackson added that silly dwarf chase.

Question. [In reply to] Can't Post

TheOnlyOneAroundWithAnySense, I get that you very much like the movies, but do you prefer all six of them over the books? Even LOTR?

I agree with your general sentiment that all of PJ's Middle-earth films are masterpieces, but I prefer the books over them (especially LOTR).

Just curious about that statement you made. Smile

There were a few other scenes I liked [In reply to] Can't Post

What did you think of Smaug? Forgetting the terrible dwarf chase. How did you like how he was voiced and animated? I wish he'd been animated with four arms but besides that I was pretty pleased.

The Smaug and Bilbo scene could have been good [In reply to] Can't Post

Would have been better if they decided to keep the jeweled armor though. Then of course the dwarves go running inside and things get real stupid, and the entire scene is totally destroyed.

But otherwise he looked pretty much how I expected he would. And the voice and animation were well done.

Overall, I liked Smaug [In reply to] Can't Post

They made him too big and I didn't like the plot change with his belly armor but Benedict Cumberbatch did a superb job in voice-acting and I liked the animation. The running battle/chase inside Erebor was silly but that wasn't Smaug's fault.

I know it's been a while since this thread ''died''... [In reply to] Can't Post

but I would just like to clarify that I never intended to say wizzardly (or anybody else, for that matter) was OBLIGED to see BOFA. I just recommended that he'd see it, based on the fact that I liked it, of course. I said he ''should'' watch it but right after I said ''just a suggestion, of course'', which neutralized the earlier ''should''.

Therefore it was obvious that the ''should'' was more tongue-in-cheek than anything. Thus rendering your question to me essentially meaningless (no offense, though). Wink
