I’m sick and tired of people complaining about The Hobbit and how it’s 3 movies and that it’s not true to the book.
1. If The Hobbit stayed true to the book I bet most people wouldn’t love it. The Hobbit is a kids book and it is very short compared to the Lord Of The Rings so all of the scenes would be taken light-heartedly and it wouldn’t really give the story a lot of plot.
2. TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO ARE COMPLAINING THAT THE HOBBIT IS TO STRETCHED OUT SHOULD HONESTLY STOP! I understand why Peter is stretching the story cause there is a lot of goes on and he wants the audience to take it in and not just watch it and be like Oh that happened whatever. Also, to people who read the Appendices at the end of LOTR would understand that a lot of things go on in The Hobbit that the author haven’t got to mention. Tolkien was going to re-write it but couldn’t cause he sadly died. Also, if The Hobbit was only one movie I bet you a lot of people would complain how Oh Peter just pushed it all in one movie and just wanted to to tell the story that’s it. Yes, The Hobbit is a short book but when you actually read it a lot of stuff happens and Peter wants to explain fully so people who haven’t read it would see the movie and understand. Also, everyone loves Middle-Earth so if there is only one Hobbit movie people would be like what we just came back to Middle-Earth and that’s it? So, people who are complaining needs to stop.
3. To the people who are complaining and saying that Peter is trying to focus on the ring more and he’s changing the story need to stop too. In the book, Tolkien doesn’t focus on the ring as much but Peter is trying to so people would understand!!!!!!! You guys need to realized that Bilbo was the one who found the ring!!!!!!!!!!!! Also, that without Bilbo there would be no story of LOTR. Peter is trying to show in the movies how the ring is corrupting Bilbo and how it is effecting him cause we only saw that for a few minutes in the LOTR.
5. To all the people who are complaining about the addition of characters. As soon as Thranduil, Legolas, and Tauriel was mentioned in the film people were complaining how Peter is just adding characters and there is no need for them. For Thranduil, he was in The Hobbit but his name wasn’t mentioned. He was only mentioned as the Elven-King and that the dwarves and Bilbo met him. So, he has to be in the movie. For Legolas (dear God people are complaining about him so much it’s quite annoying) even though he wasn’t in The Hobbit he is the elven-prince and he was alive at the time so it would make sense that he would be in the movie. Also, it would be nice to see his encounter with the dwarves before he met Gimli ( who so happens to be Gloin’s son in The Hobbit….ironic). For Tauriel, Yes it is quite annoying and weird she’s in The Hobbit but I see what’s Peter is doing. Peter is trying to add more female characters and more to the elf story. I heard in the movie (spoiler alert…. I guess) that she has a some love for Kili and such. A lot of people are complaining about it and even though I have not yet seen the movie I think it’s quite nice. It actually shows an elf and a dwarf having some romantic love even though there is hatred between both races. As long as it doesn’t turn into some Romeo and Juliet then I’m fine.
I could type a bunch more but this would get too long!!!!!!!! So if you read all the way down here then thanks for taking the time and reading it. I did not see the movie yet but I’m seeing it this Saturday! Can’t wait! I hope I changed you guys opinion on the movie (for those who saw it).
