A JOB THAT HOLLYWOOD APPARENTLY
DOESN' T REALICE NEEDS
1. Book Snappers
This one' s easy: Every single movie in
production needs an person whose only job is
to read the book, then slap the director with it
every time they say "Yeah. but what if Ili-
Pictured: The only scene from "The Desolation
of Smaug" that is actually in the ******* book'.

Yeah, the hobbit isn't loyal to the book at all. But i like it. As a person who has read the book a couple of times, i think it's cool to see something new. And i think Peter Jackson makes brilliant job with the additional parts except Kili x Elf romance, **** that .

I especially enjoyed the part where dwarfs **** up smaug.

I've read the books. I have a hard cover of the Hobbit behind me on my book shelf. I really enjoy the movies and am quite glad there's 3 of them so I can watch more movies. 75% of the people who I know that don't like the movies already decided to hate them before they even 						*******					 saw them.

Yeah, but The Hobbit film series is based off of the universe in general, not just the hobbit. I think Jackson and the writers did a fine job filling in the gaps, and making a movie true to the universe (because universe matters most of all when it comes to fantasy).

Fun fact of the day:
J.R.R. Tolkien had some extra stuff that he wanted to add into the Hobbit, but he omitted it because the book was already extremely long. The movies are adding in a few of those redacted scenes.
At least educate yourself before you bitch about things.

Some books are better off changed. If the director can do it right, I don't see a problem with it. Example: The entire ending of Fight Club is completely different from the book and the author himself said he likes it better.

1- that isnt the only bit in the book
2- trying to fit every detail and scene from the book, into a movie, without making that movie ridiculously long. is impossible.

peter Jackson doesn't change the book cos "hur dur i do wut i want" he has a budget, he can't spend money frivolously on loads of locations and sets and actors who all need food, accommodation, lines to read, props/dress,and transport to locations. so he changes parts to suit his budget so that you get a great movie, not perfect, but great

I find it annoying when people think a film is 						****					 because it took liberties instead of being entirely faithful to the book. You should judge a film on whether or not it's good, not how many liberties it took and how many it didn't.

Oh wow, did you go into the movie theater thinking it would be like in the book?   
Well 						****					 you. You shouldn't compare a novel of fiction from the 1930's with a motion picture from 2013.   
   
Guess what? Some things are GOING to be different. A book and a movie are both unique experiences of the story, and shouldn't be compared scene to scene.   
   
I thought the Desolation of Smaug was absolutely EPIC.

Here's a list of things that were both in the book and movie *I'll try to keep this from spoiling the movie but still spoilers I guess*
1. Beon the Skinchanger
2. The spiders (Which in 3D reminded me why I'm afraid of spiders)
3. The Barrel Riding Scene (With a few added things like the elves and orcs)
4. Bilbo's confrontation with Smaug. (Which was altered a bit but the dialogue is spot on)
5. *MAJOR SPOILER* Smaug flying off to Laketown.
6. The hidden door
and well I'm sure there's more but still, plus if the movie was spot on to the books it would be pretty boring. Sorry if I;m being a dick about this.

Look, I've seen movies which follow the books they're based on slavishly.

They're terrible.

What if I told you that a film adaption isn't supposed to be a film-based carbon copy of the book?

Seriously, a film takes a story and re-imagines it, essentially. People should stop complaining that the film doesn't match the book.

Desolation of smaug followed the book to the ******* teeth.Yes, Peter Jackson did in fact add his own artistic input. BUT GUESS THE **** WHAT. HE DID IT WELL. So what if the scenes aren't the same, the same **** happened in the same chronological order.

the book is barely long enough for one movie.
I fully support the changes and love them

I'm honestly unsure why everyone complains about movies not being 100% reenacments of the books they were based off.    
   
I've ALREADY read The Hobbit, I'm not going to the cinemas just to go see a word for word retelling of the book that I've already read, I'm going to the cinemas to see Desolation of Smaug; two different things. There's a good reason to add more to it because that way there's a way to catch book savvy people off guard and still get some enjoyment out of viewers who aren't that deep into the book lore.

Ok maybe some movies need that, but Peter Jackson IS Middle Earth. He is a genius film maker, and the movie you're referring to was amazing.

The Ender's Game Movie Adaption is essential the live action Dragonball Movie. They cut out all the plot, a ton of characters, and generally pissed all over the franchise.
