WTF Peter Jackson?
Ok, I could deal with Thorin not being old, which he is supposed to be. I could deal with them not having their funny colored hoods. I could deal with a lot of changes.
BUT YOU RAPED MY FAVORITE BOOK!
Who the fuck was that one armed freak? Ok if he is in the Appendecies or whatever, why bring him into the movie.
There was so much FIGHTING. ALL for fucking hollywood effect.
SAURUMAN? REALLY? My mom almost walked out at that part.
I read a review about how the Stone Giants sound cool in the book, but once you bring them to screen they seem lame. Agreed. How many times could they almost die getting crushed?
SO MUCH FIGHTING.
I feel like I’m still too angry five days later to put together a cohesive post about my thoughts feeling etc that have to do with this movie and how it was basically a money goal.
Come on, the most important thing is that Bilbo NEVER would have guessed ‘Time’, he has sheer dumb luck, says ‘give me more time’ and Gollum thinks that is his answer. No prompt. No bullshit. UGH!!!!!!
Also, why can’t they have kept some of the better humor in it? WHY DOES IT ALL HAVE TO BE ACTION!?!?!?!?!
This book was read to me by my mother as a child. I would never take a child to see this movie. Ever. It’s supposed to be a kids book. WTF.
I guess I just need some explanations. I was miffed about a lot of the LOTR shit until the behind the scenes stuff explained it away. However, I still feel that all the changes were just to make money, not stay true to the book.
Tolkein would be rolling in his grave right meow.
