I personally just think he's a moron, but to each their own.

All he does is troll--and not particularly well (unless you're talking about canned sardines).

Please stop quoting him.

The book is not the movie. Do you understand this? It's a very simple concept.

I'm hearing the phrase "Captain Obvious" in the same voice as "Captain Caveman" and it's making me smile.

The final scene was delivered completely incorrectly -- he said his lines like he was prepping for the punchline of a joke rather than humbly apologizing for his mistake.

That really stuck out to me too. I understood where he was coming from -- apologizing and all -- but the obvious pauses for dramatic effect and the dumb expression on his face really undercut his sincerity.

I finally got around to seeing the Hobbit part 1 last night. I never read the book, but I thought it was pretty enjoyable. I did agree the final "I was wrong about you" dialogue was rathe cliché and all I could think of was Val Kilmer saying "YOU CAN BE MY WING MAN ANY TIME!" during it. Also did anyone think the CGI on the pale orc and goblin king, etc looked kind of cheesy? shog[1].gif

This may provide you with an answer to the last point:

teaser trailer for Desolation of Smaug.

This one looks like it will be the majority of the action sequences. I hope they actually include Bilbo-Smaug, but I feel they may save it for film 3..

The score sounds like it's going to kick ass again. Was a huge fan of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey's score.

That was a pretty good trailer. Got me really bumped for it.

I dislike the gratuitous "we shot this scene for 3-D" look of most of those action scenes.

I want to say it looks cartoon-y, but by that I'm not talking about the picture quality. I'm talking about the way Peter Jackson has been running the action scenes. If I'm going to see Legolas jump up onto an Oliphaunt, kill everyone aboard and then slide down the tail like he's on a skateboard, I'd rather watch a Pixar movie.

That was my big issue with Return of the King, and The Hobbit took it even further throughout that cave scene.

The Fellowship and The Two Towers had much more gritty realism about them, and didn't let the effects get out of hand. I found myself able to immerse better into those movies.

What the hell is Legolas doing in this movie?
