You see, the more I think about this movie, the more faults and stupid decisions I uncover and the more hostile I become towards it. Now, I could give you a list of things that I think should have been better/omitted in this movie, but I choose not to. You see, I just want to see some reasonable arguments from the fans of this movie as to why this film was good and a worthy prequel to LOTR. Try to convince me.
Now, I will admit that the landscapes of NZ were once again gorgeous, that Bilbo, Gandalf, Balin and Bofur were portrayed almost perfectly and that Riddles in the Dark was mostly perfect, so those arguments won't be required. Just give me some more reasons as to why you considered this a good film, on par with LOTR and worthy of a higher RT-score than it has right now. And, fanboys, don't call me a troll for not considering this movie the Second Coming. I'm just a disgruntled fan of both Tolkien and Jackson's previous Middle-Earth movie.
