Lindsay Ellis On The Hobbit Trilogy Of Movies, More Jackson Than Tolkien


Here is a nice series of retrospective, if occasionally discursive, videos from the geek pop-culture commentator Lindsay Ellis examining the legacy of Peter Jackson’s bloated trilogy of movies inspired by JRR Tolkien’s rather slim 1937 children’s book, The Hobbit. I don’t agree with every point the YouTuber makes but there are quite a few facts in these features that I was unaware of, though I’m not terribly surprised. The cinematic dramatization of Tolkien’s initially unplanned introduction to the imaginative world of Middle-earth was a grotesque CGI spectacular, crammed with extraneous clutter, and a huge disappointment. Ellis details just how much worse it was behind the cameras for all involved. Bar the money-men at the studios.
