OMGHi2U Tolkien - 2019

Surprised there isn't a thread for this. It opens today, can't decide if it will be any good. It looks like it is trying to be overly artsy like Dunkirk was.




I was debating on seeing this or Detective Pikachu

I think it looks like it could be good but I probably won't see it in a theater.

Yep. For me doesn't look even remotely worth the cost of a ticket.

I watched too much of the 3 hour monstrosities from the Hobbit trilogy. I shan't be watching a 2 hour dick sucking/exaggeration of Tolkien's actual life. 2/10 interest hard pass with a squinty-eyed head shake.

I assume if your familiarity with Tolkien is sorta enjoying parts of a couple movies made from a selection of his writings, this movie isn't for you. It's not for me based upon that criteria.

I'm gonna go one further and say that unless you've tried and/or succeeded at learning Elvish, this is a hard pass. Just to drive the point home, they probably should have filmed the whole thing in Elvish and included English subtitles. This could have been the ONE chance those people would ever have to pretentiously tell other people that it was much more moving in the original Elvish.

You're right, if they didn't do at least one scene in Elvish they missed the boat.

Every movie needed a scene that felt like a side scroller with moving platforms, slides, etc.

When I saw the ad of the two stars promoting this, I realized I've been pronouncing his name wrong since forever.

I read the books way before the movies. I even read the Silmarillion.

I think he is a horrible story teller and Peter Jackson took an already less than mediocre collection of books and made it a series of even worse movies.

I will not be seeing this film in the theater, or in my home.

I will say that he had a great imagination and was really good at building a world. that was what I found fascinating about his writing. the stories he wrote were for ****, but he constructed a pretty amazing place where those stories happened.

an interpretation of The Hobbit, by samagon:

40 pages of eating dinner.
100 pages of walking, bumbling about and finding a ring.
2 pages of the biggest war that has been seen in ages where we focus on a hobbit finding new and inventive ways to knock himself unconscious.
the end.

there might be more pages dedicated to the walking part, I can't be sure. and I think I recall the eagles swooped in at the last second to save the day.

**** I hate that book. I will never read it again, at least, not until I have kids, I will read it to them when they are about 7. that way I can attempt to see it through childs eyes and not as a critical adult, that might help me to appreciate the story.
