The video after the cut has been making the rounds lately that gives some insight into why The Hobbit movies are a bloated mess. (In some opinions, I didn’t think they were so bad. No LOTR, but enjoyable.)
After the cut, feast your eyes on the Honest Trailers for the three Hobbit films. Should there be three Hobbit films? Probably not. What answer would you give to Mr. Fry above?
I have mentioned in the past that my wife is not a geek. There is one noteworthy exception to her non-geekiness, which is some fantasy stuff like Harry Potter and the works of Tolkien.
That’s why it is so surprising to me that we didn’t get around to seeing the last of The Hobbit movies until this past Saturday. Or maybe it isn’t. Spoilers after the cut.
