Mornin '12
Morning, my dear AT readers. 2012 is almost at an end. We have a great deal to look forward to next year. Well, for me it's only one - Mirror's Edge 2. Not that we'll see that in 2013, but it's still comforting to know that they're making it.

A few more games on my most wanted games of 2013 list, but more that's another story.

Anyway, I'm still having trouble why people are so disappointed with The Hobbit movie. Could it possibly be that people were so naive as the store as deep and complex as in the Lord of the Rings. It's not the same story. The Hobbit is a kid's book and similarly this movie is for younger generations. Also, it's not a bad movie. 2lions is appalled and thinks that the movie emphasizes the action way too much and that the whole thing suffers from the old milking-the-cash-cow syndrome. That's true. They've made the mistake of stretching this one with too many actions scenes just so it can be squeezed into a concise movie trilogy. Honestly, I don't think that there's that much lore in The Hobbit to accommodate a three hour movie based on one segment of the book. This means that the writers needed to work a bit more on the dialogue and the backstories. Or it might be that people just expect a movie as rich in lore and as impressive as the Lord of the Rings trilogy? Because that's really how it looks like from where I'm standing.

From one twat to another - we're right and all the other twats are less right.

i would hardly call the LoTR movies rich in lore, most of them were just dialogue and action scenes coupled only with a simple and cold answer for what is happening in the story, leaving any motivation or character background to a minimum.

Tolkien wrote a fuckload of stories that connect with one another. it would take a dozen trilogies to encompass them.

look at the movies as trailers for the books if you will.

Went to see Hobbit yesterday. Total satisfaction, it was exactly what I expected and maybe even a little bit more. I enjoyed every second of it and I'll go see it in 3D somewhen during Christmas.

is there as much gay action in the hobbit as there was in the lord of the rings trilogy?

oh, and more importantly - do they actually do anything else but walking?
  Superastic: Hmm.. Clerks fan? Only one hobbit. So sorry, no ga…

I saw it. The fanboy in me rates it 9, the critic 7,8. More details tomorrow.

I liked The Hobbit, but the storyline is dragged out too much.
