Critics dislike Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit at their own peril
The Huffington Post recently posted a story about why many critics currently savaging The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will regret it in the long run. It has more to do with the fuller history of Middle-earth, of which most critics are completely unaware, and less to do with them reviewing the first part of a trilogy that has yet to play out. This article gives a run down of the pertinent bits of Middle-earth history before The Hobbit, and the time between the two stories, to more fully connect them and give a proper perspective to character motivation.
Please note that there are some SPOILERS in this article for those who have not yet read the book.Posted in Characters, Hobbit Book, Hobbit Movie, Lord of the Rings, LotR Movies, The Hobbit, Tolkien on January 3, 2013 by Garfeimao
