Why the Hobbit Hate?
Is this the book we read when we were younger? No, it is not. What it is though is three more movies set in one of our favorite fantastical worlds. For me, that is more than enough. Peter Jackson can really do no wrong in my eyes. Could he have done a more faithful Hobbit adaptation and could he have done it in one film? Yes to both but you will not hear me complain about getting three more films in Middle Earth.
I understand all the complaints that have been voiced about the film. I am not in disagreement with most but you will never get me to say that I did not enjoy it. I enjoyed it immensely for what it is. A new adventure set in Middle Earth based loosely on The Hobbit.
I love Middle Earth, it is one of my favorite fantastical worlds if not my very favorite. They can keep pumping out movies and I will keep watching them, given that the quality of the films are good. So in short I agree with the rabble rousing but at the same time cannot dislike the movies no matter how un-Hobbit like they are.
