Kids and fanboys are idiots and do not know any better, this had always been philosophy when making fantasy films in the past. I grew up watching sci-fi and fantasy films experiencing this problem with bad fantasy and sci-fi films and I loved the Lord of the Rings trilogy and geeked out on the new Star Trek. But, you got to be kidding me is this the Hobbit that is suppose to be the definitive version on film. In this day and age hopefully some one else will remake Hobbit and do a better job. This film sucks period and I cannot believe Peter Jackson resorted to Disney Channel humor much of the time. I guessed I would have loved it if I had drained my brain watching Hannah Montana and the Wizards of Waverley Place, which at any moment I would not have been surprised if they made a cameo in this. This movie like a bad Holiday Special ( remember Star Wars Holiday Special?) that have appeared on Television that horribly butchers the source material for a quick buck. Oh yeah it is going to get worse. It takes one and half years to write a good script. Peter Jackson and his writing partners were not given much time to write the new scripts for Desolation of Smaug and There and Back Again to to fill in the more hours for the next two movies. You might say yeah right Peter Jackson won an oscar for Directing and best picture. Look up Michael Cimino for The Deer Hunter, he won best director and the film won best picture. Then Michael Cimino directed Heaven's Gate and that destroyed his career.
