Please don’t film the Silmarrillion

I just watched the second installment of The Hobbit, 161 minutes of about ten pages in the book. It was boring, worthless film.

Reinventing a storyline, FFS, Peter Jackson, you should be ashamed. JRR will be spinning in his grave, how dare you, butcher and re-invent the Hobbit.

In summary, leave Moria, walk to the edge of Mirkwood, get caught by spiders, escape spiders, meet elves, get to lake town, then find Durin’s door, scrabble in dragon’s hoard, dragon gets pissed off. That’s it.

Oh my G-d just think how many films he will get out of the Silmarrilion, two three hundred? Don’t just please don’t.
