yeah [In reply to] Can't Post

i don't think much was really changed other than they allowed themselves to include more material than they would have otherwise and the Azog thing. i don't think any additional reshooting has been taking place besides what they're gearing up for with TABA (and a bit of DOS). considering the adjustments that had to be made to shift to three films, i actually think that AUJ feels like a remarkably composed and intentional work.

and, yes, this is a great look at the film's characterization of Thorin that also serves as a pretty good review of the film itself. AUJ ain't perfect but it's definitely an 8 out of 10 type movie, which for me is better than most movies in a given year, and as an adaptation i think it over-achieves, if anything. good perspective in this article with some pointers that some might try to keep in mind when they seek to evaluate the movie strictly by comparing it to the book--or, on the flip side, by comparing it to the LotR trilogy. it is neither PJ's or Tolkien's LotR, nor is it Tolkien's The Hobbit. it is the first part of PJ's Hobbit. take it for what it is, not for what it isn't.
