Oh dear. Maybe he's a big fan of huge burrowing worms...

I was rather astonished upon seeing the movie, I have to be honest and say that I have not paid any attention to him since. Which could be harsh as he was seeing it at the premier iirc with all the glitz and glamour so maybe that comment was a reaction to the situation rather than the movie.

The last H movie is more offensive than any game could ever be. If anything is "an appalling load of nonsense" it's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. They could have piled up first editions and set fire to them & I would have been less disturbed.

While I am able to enjoy The Lord of the Rings and the first half of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey I do not regard them in any way part of Middle-earth, I enjoy them as movies and I am able to let go. My vision of Middle-earth is very different to the movies with the exception of the Shire (I have happily let that update my own images as they were so close to each other)

But the 3rd Hobbit movie offends me so deeply, I was told that I lacked perspective and was being too critical when I said it is the worst movie I have ever seen but I still stand firm with that opinion. It was and is a disgusting insult to the books and Tolkien not only as the author but also as a linguist. To put a swear word in the movie was for me the ultimate example that the film makers actually knew less than they pretended.

Oh, I almost have to watch "The Battle of the Five Armies" again to catch the swear word. Almost.

I did enjoy the LOTR trilogy of movies, especially the Fellowship of the Ring. I agree that they do not do the books justice, but they were definitely enjoyable as movies for me. Can't say the same for the Hobbit movies. At some point I will watch the fan edit that took all three and pared them down to something approaching what was in the book. From what I have read, they didn't make all the same choices I would have, and of course they are missing any material that wasn't filmed, but I think it could be more interesting than the source movies.
