      I think "amusement park ride" sums up exactly what we're getting with these movies. And they aren't all THAT bad, so long as it's assumed from the getgo that this is a spectacle based on the Hobbit, more than the story itself.

      That said, only in fantasy & sci fi fandom would we get near literal second-by-second snarky commentary on a short film trailer. ;) So it's good to see that some things will never change in Middle Earth, even if all the new neon signs are a bit garish.

      Those who hate the movies more than I do (which includes just about
      everybody who hates the movies) will not want to read it, because you have
      to watch the trailer itself for it to make sense.
