Hobbit Trilogy
« on: December 31, 2014, 07:07:29 am »

Now that the third installment of the Hobbit trilogy has been released do you think maybe there is someone out there that can edit it down to a single film? There's at least 5 or 6 hours of extraneous fluff that could be trimmed. I feel like there is a good movie hiding in there somewhere.

I think editing projects like that are a thing.  I lack the motivation to query the Googles at the moment, but I recall hearing about edits of the Star Wars prequels that actually made it a story worth hearing.  Or watching, anyway.

Yeah, I've  heard about that too with the prequels. As for the Hobbit, I'm afraid though that I'm not gonna like the edit unless the editor is a big fan of the books. Most of the fluff is shit that isn't in the books. I saw a preview of a Lego Hobbit thing. Not sure if it was a movie or a video game, but the stuff they showed was straight out of the book. Maybe that is the solution I am seeking.
