So when Peter Jackson comes out with The Silmarillion, will /tv/ be flooded with people claiming that the Hobbit trilogy were avant-garde cinematic masterpieces because "at least they tried to be original?"
For a split second I thought hamill had reverted back to JUST
How would he do that when Christopher Tolkien hates his fucking guts and literally evinced that his "commercialisation has reduced the aesthetic and philosophical impact of [Tolkien's] creation to nothing"?
Why would the Tolkien estate agree to release more material to Warner when they have had to sue them multiple times just to get them to acknowledge that the films had made a profit?
JRR gave away certain rights to Saul Zaentz in his lifetime which have been recycled continuously but the rest? Hollywood accounting is in the way. Unless there's a huge payoff it will never happen.
Your "reasoning" falls expectedly within the category of "Not reasoning but what retards with learning disabilities believe is reasoning." When you also consider that this board is infested with /pol/ anti-intellectuals, and that all good, recently made movies are "reasoned" to be shit here, it's only fair to conclude that 99% of you are either desperate contrarians or are just simply too dumb to think coherently.
That's a funny word for "all of us are literally retarded." You deserve to die of cancer. What's it like knowing that before that happens, not a single person will ever enjoy your company or value you for any reason?
>You deserve to die of cancer. What's it like knowing that before that happens, not a single person will ever enjoy your company or value you for any reason?
Woah, just because /tv/ is not your special hivemind it give you no right to start projecting your pathetic existence onto others.

Back to tumblr you trigger nigger.

I wish 4chan would stop using stale jokes. Things take like, 5x longer to die than they should because of the scale of the site.
After the Hobbit I hope he doesn't do the Silmarillion. But I don't think he would have done it anyway. It's just too hard to tackle. It's all so separate from what people think of as "Lord of the Rings" that no one but the nerdiest of nerds would go for it.
If it's even worse, then maybe. Imagine being starving hungry and someone puts down in front of you a stale, mouldy loaf of brad. You turn your nose up and ask for something else, and you get a dog shit on a plate. Suddenly the bread doesn't look so bad.
Does anyone REALLY want this, though?
The Silmarillion is basically just one massive loredump, with almost no recognizable characters. It's all very interesting but I feel like actively focusing on it and adapting it would be missing the point.
Just imagine how fun she would be though. And hanging out with her and peter would be Shire levels of comfort.
>ywn sit around the fireplace with Katie watching LOTR
Doubtful. Passionate as LOTR fans are, they don't seem as outright insane as Star Wars fans have become. Look at the recent influx of prequel fans from Reddit, tumblr and other miserable shitholes since TFA opened. These fuckers are like bible bashers from the deep south, no amount of logic or reason has any effect on them, they just keep chanting "Jesus loves you, he died for your sins" or in their case "The prequels are actually masterpieces, like, they have worldbuilding and the score is good" day in, day out. Their childhood nostalgia for those appalling films has rendered their ability to think critically completely non-functional.
Pic related: average prequel fan.
the LotR movies were the perfect coming together of actors, writers, crew and an enormous amount of pressure
LotR was almost rightly seen as a story that could absolutely not be turned into a movie, and that pressure made everyone work super hard on ever the most minute details. watching the behind the scenes stuff on the extended editions is amazing, they put a crazy amount of work into those movies.
King Kong had a good movie in it but was too indulgent to work.
The Lovely Bones isn't really that bad, just not something you'd expect from Peter Jackson.
The Hobbit films are surprisingly competent given the Spider-Man 3 like trainwreck making conditions Peter had to put up with, they are what they are.
I wish he'd go back to low budget splatter movies though.
