I bet you never were on a set, or even in a pre-production office. poor thing[/QUOTE]Hah... none taken, don't worry. It would take much more then forum words to offend me. ;) As to answer your question: I've never made a wine, but I know is it tastes good or bad, so your argument (and often heard argument that nothing can't be criticized until you can do the same thing) is just wrong. It can be valid for some of the things, but not for all cases. I've never discarded the effort people put in creation of the movie. If you read carefully my post, you'll see that only one who I am "attacking" is Peter. No one else. Actually, I've said that visually movies are great, and I really think so, but I didn't give the credit to Peter for that, but for all those hard working people. I've seen you didn't comment my actual points, so I don't know should I try to answer you on that. If you're interested I can elaborate in more deep what is actually very wrong in the movies (again, imho), and what ruined all the Tolkien magic.

Everyone has the right of an opinion even if they don't share it with yours :hmm:. Bobi has a very valid point about the acting (although I don't think is was that very bad overall, but some of the drama could be greatly improved). No need to get upset about.

[QUOTE=Nukie;927053]Although the movies aren't as great as the books doesn't mean they completely suck.[/QUOTE]Visually, the movies is stunning and very impressive (for me at least), but Piter really sucked in some of the characterizations, with bad choices for actors. Aragorn and Gandalf the most. They lack authority and charisma they have in the book. I am not accusing them for being bad actors, but they don't feet well with this characters. From the other side, Saruman (Christopher Lee), did an awesome job, as Bilbo. But they are not that important as Aragorn and Gandalf, and I would like that opposite happened. Directing of the battle scenes is also very impressive (maybe, something best in the movies yet seen), but directing of the emotional scenes are just pathetic, with all those crying, slow-motions, besides that, totally unnecessary arguing between characters (for example: Aragorn and Legolas in Helms Deep, or Gandalf and Elrond in Rivendell). Piter should have watched more carefully some directors that can direct emotional scenes without being pathetic (Cameron, Darabond, Gibson...), and try to do something similar. All in all, we'll see how Hobit will turn out, but I am not very optimistic that he will improve the things I didn't like in LOTR.

This is shaping up to be an amazing movie. It has certainly not been rushed, just look at principal photography that took 266 days and there's more to be done for the third part. They're taking their sweet time to get it right, and the turnover is almost double that of a normal feature film. Which I don't mind, I want something done great, not quickly.I have absolute faith in Peter Jackson and his team that they will deliver.Similarly to bashing Diablo 3, etc, I hope that people do not bash The Hobbit over following in the footsteps of the legendary Lord of the Rings. It is the same team creating this series, give them a chance to impress us again with movie magic.I am very much looking forward to revisiting Middle-Earth. :)

Ah come on. Its not that bad. True, its a recalling to life of movies long ago. But the original trilogy was a great trilogy. And the visuals of this movie don't look bad at all. I am watching forward to this one. Although the movies aren't as great as the books doesn't mean they completely suck.

I really hope this movie doesn't suck. I get the feeling that Peter Jackson tried to rush this film out. The "let's get it over with" mentality. The color correction in some shots seem a bit off, the blending of CG elements and live action aren't quite as good as the original, Smeagol's animation looks some-what artificial and less organic than the original 3. Again, this is only judging off of what I've seen here in this trailer. Let's hope I'm wrong...

Nothing in this trailer conveys the gentle yet powerful spirit of a child, which is what the hobbit is all about. It was never epic, but rather simple and humane.

This trailer spoils everything for those that had not read the book. If they showed spiders, they would show everything. Again, I am felling sick of Ian Mcallen acting Gandalf as an old man with tired look. That's not the Gandalf for God's sake! Gandalf is much more energic, retoric then this slow bag. He is a bearier of fire ring, he should inspire others by just being present in the scene. Ian don't have that charisma (if he had any at all). And Elrond - agent Smiths bothers me also. Torin looks too young. It's like in the 30's, and I don't have an impression that it is a dwarf. He look like man. He looks like me when I don't shave for a while.
