The Hobbit trilogy has been terrible.The Hobbit flick. Jackson sux donkey bowls. He's taste is like a f***** 12 year old's.You forgot to mention the horrible CGI effects. So fake! On a 200+ million budget film! The boat sequence of the previous movie still haunts me in my nightmares. I'm not keen on seeing the new one after the mess that has been Smaug.
I nearly burst out laughing at the aftermath of Laketown. It was handled with all the gravitas of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
The midget-Spock, fairy woman love story was truly meaningless and unintentionally funny.
Jackson also pushed most scenes over the top, and I don't mean the action sequences, but the dramatic stuff. He got a scene approximately right, then added a little tail of silent movie theatricality, that ruined the effective stuff. Having Galadriel swoon and then shiver and writhe was just enough to kill a quite effective part. Also, by the end of the film Iwas more interested in how the orcs would be offed, than whatever happens to Chad Kroeger or the other midgets of Thorin.
I hope Jackson retires early, he wastes good talent and a lot of money better spent elsewhere...
