As a book, the Hobbit was much better than LOTR in my opinion.

Hoping that the movie will follow that pattern :yeah:. Thanks for the link to the trailer!

They dispensed with most of the songs and poems in Lord of the Rings in the film versions. It would be a good thing if they did the same here.

Not sure about this. Hobbit was written as a fairy-tale for children, while LoTR is meant for adults.
I have read "Hobbit" when I was 12 and it really sucked, I have marked this book down as a very infantile and naive story , hopefully the movie will be different.

I agree with this. Except I read the Hobbit as a senior in high school. It is definitely a children's book and except for the Gollum chapter the rest of the book is crap.

I'm one of those people who didn't really like the book either. Mind you it's one of the only books I've actually finished so I don't actually know how I got all the way through it. :confused:

LoTR is a kids' fairytale trying to appeal to wider audience IMO. There was nothing great about it...I wish they made a movie based on the Forgotten Realms universe, LoTR is pretty overrated tbh...

Which explains why Lopez prefers The Hobbit. :eek:

Well I did read them both when I was young so :p. Might be the reason. Should probably try to read them again.

Hobbit hasn't gotten great reviews here, just normal 3/5. It might have been a mistake to make it in three parts. Will probably see it though, the movie will be well-made if nothing else. For me, LOTR was more impressive in the costumes and settings etc. than in storytelling.

Fuck reviews, I mean reviews say movies like The Hunger Games are good when in reality I know i'm speaking for quite a few people when I say it's hugely overrated shit.

Comes out tomorrow here but will have to find someone to go see it with, everyone I know isn't interested in seeing it. :eek:

Hunger Games books were decent but the film was garbage.
