Joe, are you thinking about reviewing the new Star Trek movie?
I agree with most of what you said about the movie and the gimmicks – damn I hate 3D – and I personally enjoyed the film. Sure I had a couple of favourites as well – Thorin, I loved him – so there is not much reason for me to comment…but I chose to do so, for this:
The eagles are sentient. They are basically people as far as intelligence goes and as far as arrogance well, they have most outmatched. The only reason the eagle King saves Gandalf and his band of merry dwarves when they’re in mortal peril is because Gandalf did the same for him. And he owes him a debt. But he would never be bothered with anything else/less. They aren’t messengers or carriers nor is the dwarves getting back their gold/mountain enough reason for them to risk anything.
So there you go. The eagles would never accept such treatment, for they are proud and stubborn and would consider it beneath them. Hope it answers the question.

WOW u a bit generous8/10. It is a good movie i realy enjoyed it in most parts. But faaaaaaaaaaar away from an awesome movie.
1. Every emotional scene was SO CHEAP CHEESE and PREDICTABLE. It was lower level compared to some lame TV sieries.
2. Why oh HELL WHY WE NEED HOBITS and DWARFS?! WHEN every single conflict I MEAN EVERY as in ALL CONFLICTS were solved by GANDOLF and dwarfs were just holding him back. Why didnt dwarfs simply asked for Gandolf to go alone and win back their kingdom for them? Why this is not a GANDOLF ALONE movie. Because he is the only one who was doing something towards the goal. Felt like it was a movie about Gandolf and his children who always gets in troble and dady has to come rescue them.
3. Ending……probably the worst ending ever seen in all movies that supose to be good. Seriously i have seen beter endings in STEVEN SEGAL MOVIES Realy.
IT IS A GOOD MOVIE. you have to see it especialy if u are a fan. There are a ton of good stuff. BUT IT IS NOOOT AN AWESOME movie.
The Hobbit was okay but not great. I thought it was way over the top which made me feel like the characters were never in any real danger. What I loved about the book was that when bad things did happen, Bilbo usually survived because he was lucky. The movie felt more like a cartoon adaptation to the book than a true serious adaptation. I also felt splitting the book into three books was unnecessary. I think it would have been more enjoyable as a single 3 hour movie as an adventure movie in the same vein as Willow.
This movie deserved a 7/10 or less, in my opinion. They absolutely ruined the plot of the book by sensationalizing EVERYTHING!!! In the book, they have to scour the mountains looking for a tiny pass, plagued by the sounds of stone giants fighting every night, somewhere nearby. It was tense, with a stressful tone.
In the movie, they’re thrown into an ACTUAL stone giant battle where there’s so much destruction around them that it’s laughably unrealistic that none of them die. Again and again they take scenes from the book and blow them WAY out of proportion by adding random danger.
Who decided that being stuck in a tree surrounded by wolves and goblins who were planning to burn you out wasn’t enough? “Hey guys, I don’t think this scene has enough danger. What if they were all in just ONE tree, and that tree was on the edge of a massive cliff?”
Also, in the book Bilbo didn’t use his sword until much later, and he never fought any humanoids. He wasn’t a fighter at all! But this movie has him tackling a Warg rider! It’s ridiculous. Now people will look at this movie and say “Well, it’s more of a fantastic story, you can’t expect it to be realistic.” But Tolkien worked very hard to make it believable, and they just threw his effort out the window.
Now, there are two scenes in the movie that are absolutely spot on, and these are the party in Bag End and the conversation with Gollum. The reason these are amazing scenes is because they are the ONLY scenes in the movie that are copied straight out of the book. The dialog with Gollum is almost verbatim, straight from the book for 10 minutes straight and you can tell that it’s higher quality writing than anything else in this movie. It’s just so frustrating to know that they COULD have made it so much better. Many people consider the Hobbit to be a better story than LOTR, but this movie can’t compete at all. All the animation, all the coreography and some of the acting is excellent, if they had just KEPT THE STORY it would have been awesome.
Thank you finally someone else who feels the same way I do, was thinking I was the only one who thought the movie had too MUCH action. Why wasn’t the book good enough for Jackson, I thought the reason for three movies was so they wouldn’t skip anything, NO it was so we can have over the top shit happen where there was a paragraph in the book and so we can screw around with orcs who weren’t even in the F**king book & seriously the last scene in the trees killed the movie for me; just contrived peter jackson bullshit, does not do Tolkien’s work justice.
Long Film???? It’s like 1 hour less that the originals, films that were long as hell and every minute was enjoyable, not many like that exist :S
even the trees fucking walk
Hobbit sucks like lord of the ring
Your a dumbass
you never been on the d box before? I’ve had lots of times in palm beach
I will watch the Movie with my little sister for sure now
We both loved Lord of the Rings (still do and watch it every half a year)
But I won’t look it in 3D. Its irritating and gives me headache….
Hey Anrgy Joe there’s a movie called Fast & Furies 6, and what it is it’s a racing, action movie with more racing, more action and it’s coming out in May 2013 you should check it out. Infact see the over 1,000,000 views trailer.
