So many snobby critics giving this movie bad reviews! What gives? The Hobbit was amazing!! The Lord of the Rings trilogy was widely recognized as a masterpiece. And all the elements that made that trilogy great, were carried over to The Hobbit. Considering that this second trilogy had less than 1/3 the amount of material to work with, I'm actually shocked it was so good. To the self-proclaimed movie aficionados who didn't have their minds turned upside down by The Hobbit, go watch Jiro Dreams of Sushi and leave the rest of the world to enjoy Jackson's work the way we have been for so long.
