The Hobbit: An unexpected journey (2012)

The charm of JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit lies in its naivete, in its innocent comedy, and sense of naughty fun.

Peter Jackson's The Hobbit rewrites the comedy into part of the dark epic of Lord of the Rings.

The result is a story that is unsuited to the genre, at odds with its telling, and at odds with its intended epic greatness.
