Well, I guess our opinions just differ [In reply to] Can't Post

…and our ways of looking at things. The 'internal logic' of The Hobbit was satisfactory to me, and I felt no need to obsess about any rupture in logic. And I certainly don't think that just because 'it's fantasy so anything goes'. It's just that in this instance, the narrative worked fine for me.

need internal logic to work as a narrative. Just because there's magic rings and lightsabers doesn't mean that things don't need to make sense. I get tired of the "it's fantasy so anything goes" argument.
