Tolkien meant "The Hobbit" to be a children's book. It is supposed to be lighter then LotR. It is supposed to appeal to kids. It was required reading in my 6th grade English class back in the 70's. My son read the book 2 years ago when he was 9 and LOVED IT. He has been wanting to see the movie ever since. I am taking him tonight!
Movie was meh. Given Lord of Rings was three epic slogs, three slogging movies to match made sense. As books go, The Hobbit is exact opposite. Its tight, almost a novella. Taking something like that and turning into three slogging movies doesn't work quite so well. Especially when Jackson has to dump filler - making up filler for a movie adaptation of a book! - into the story to stretch it out.
The famous line that starts the famous book: "In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit" shows up about a half-hour into this thing. Kind of sums the eroding-rock pace of this movie up. Happens to directors when they stop listening to their editors. That problem is off the charts here.
I think partens should see the hobbit first befor any kids see it and I think it should be 13 and over that should see it and not kids that are the age of 10 so partens heed my wards of wisedome from Ben Lordon
Before you see the Hobbit - you should know that 27 animals died in the making of this film, including Rainbow and two other horses, 6 goats, 6 sheep and 12 chickens. Peter Jackson and the film industry need to be held accountable. We can send that message by not seeing the Hobbit and demand changes be made to protect the animal actors before, during and after their work in film. Go to [BLOCKED WEBSITE]
and sign the petition to let Peter Jackson know that you will not see the Hobbit and demand better condtions and care for the animals actors.
Sorry but I'm seeing The Hobbit. Alot of animals die on movie sets all the time so its not just The Hobbit
Really? "actors"? Just who is in a fantasy world...I don't think a chicken or even a horse can sign their SAG card, or carry a picket sign. They are not actors, they are property, ask the company that rents them to the film companies. Any injuries that happen to them during filming is dealt with by the two entities involved in the contract, and is none of your business.
Can't wait to see it on Saturday!
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
