:Something I really don’t like about the Hobbit…
Its main issue is it is trying to be more epic than Lord of the Rings, when The Hobbit as a story is fantastic (i preferred it as a kid to lotr) but Lotr will always be more epic by the nature of its story of ending all evil.
I agree, The Hobbit should have been an adventure movie and should have not tried to be an epic saga. The storytelling is much better in The Hobbit book, than it is in the LotR books. LotR cut out a LOT of scenes from the books, making it a story and not a historical documentary.For The Hobbit a LOT was added that wasn’t supposed to be there, so it’s more like LotR.
It’s a shame Guillermo Del Toro did not get to direct it. I would have loved to see his version and not Peter Jackson’s second LotR.
