‘The Hobbit’ Trailer

The trailer for Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” has been out for a few days, though I am just getting around to posting it.  Why did I wait so long, you may ask?  If I wanted to answer in the least confrontational manner possible, I would say that  J.R.R Tolkien’s books don’t transition to screen all that well.

And while I honestly don’t think that his novels transition to screen all that well, there’s the fact that I fell asleep during one Jackson’s films–in my defense, I tend to get logy when there are long stretches of very little happening except beautiful scenery, be it on Pandora or Middle Earth–so I am not exactly enthused about doing it again.

Which doesn’t mean that I won’t see it, though it doesn’t ride particularly high on my list.  “The Hobbit” is, in its way, like a Len Wiseman film, in that I may be curious about what he’s doing, though I am very, very reluctant to pay to see it.

Now that I think of it, I owe Peter Jackson an apology because Wiseman is a bit of a hack in that he’s about the set piece, and little else.

And if you haven’t gotten enough of the meanderings of Tolkien’s merry band, here’s the most recent trailer.
