RE: The desolation of smaug
I do enjoy Jackson's LotR movies. Mostly.

But I've watched all the special features on the extended editions (yes, ALL of them), and come to the conclusion that when they're good, they're good almost despite Jackson. They had some really, really stupid ideas, which - let us give thanks - did NOT end up in the movie.

But, you know how it goes. Successful directors get - how shall we say - self-indulgent, after a while. Whatever oversight and restraint Jackson and crew had while making the trilogy is long gone.

Only in the sense that Peter Fucking Jackson fundamentally missed the point.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Tell me that isn't a fitting title to the movie.

Got to work the word 'heresy' in there somewhere.

The Universal heresy of LOTR According to Peter Jackson

How's that?
