Could I have been supercritical when it comes to The Hobbit movies? Why don't I like these movies as much as I have liked The Lord of the Rings trilogy? I dunno, maybe it's the blatant lack of source material that left The Hobbit rather poor in dialogue and lore. Or maybe it's the heavy emphasis on stunts and action. Or maybe I'm just getting old and these things are no fun for me. I mean I was really hyped before the release of both movies. The original was cool. By Desolation of Smaug just left me disheartened. Like I no longer believe in the saga. At least not this one. To me, the difference between The Hobbit movies and The Lord of the Rings movies is almost like the difference between the kiddie Star Wars prequels and the classic Star Wars trilogy - the first one being all CGI and no heart, and the second one being awesome in every fucking way.
The whole thing is debatable to say the least. And it all depends on whether you are out to just switch off your mind and have mindless fun or if you want to really be immersed in the world and characters. I have to say that the second Hobbit movie really didn't do much for me.
