Tag Archives: The Hobbits

#LOTR #HOBBIT Found an article on wired.com  that discusses the Hobbit trailer and how Peter Jackson is slipping in changes to the story. Some of them make the characters seems more human but Hobbits are not human and he does them, Aragon, and the story a dis-service by doing so. This is not a Hardy Boys mystery but a major peice of mythology.

Triffling with the masters work is not something that should be done during film making, Removing stuff to fit the viewing window is one thing, Adding parts that were never in the story is just a bad diea. The author also refers to a webpage by Gary Appenzeller who cataloged the differences. Take a look and see how many you spotted and how you feel about the changes to the story.
