Movie Month - Day 12

12. If you could change one thing about any movie, it would be....

I disagree with Lord of the Rings, a big epic series, being only 3 movies... And, The Hobbit, a very short book, being 3 movies all on its own. I think The Hobbit should have been shorter and Lord of the Rings include some of the great stuff that was left out. I also hate how they make the big teen franchises 4 movies instead of the 3 they were originally to try and make as much money as possible.


  1. I AGREE. The extended LOTR is so much better than the original theater releases. But still. I could always use MORE. And I think the Hobbit movies could have been trimmed down in places. If they'd stuck to what was in the actual book instead of trying to add more stuff to try to copy LOTR. So much was added-in or changed. That being said. I happened to love the way the end of the last Hobbit movie brought you right into the first LOTR movie :)

  2. I agree with you on all points.

  3. I will admit to having not seen any of The Hobbit movies. We tried, but the first movie was so boring - or at least what we saw of it. I never tried again because I too felt turning the one book into three movies was a bit too much. I agree that they left out so much awesome stuff in the LOTR movies.

  4. 100% agreed.

    I honestly can't think of anything on my own, except maybe cast Ewan McGregor, Tom Hiddleston, or Matt Bomer in all male singing leads. There should be no other choices, lol.

  5. I couldn't agree more. I don't know a single person who didn't fall asleep during the second Habbit movie, and the last LotR movie felt so rushed.

  6. Oh completely. The Hobbit really didn't need to be 3 films. And probably didn't need to be 2 films even. LOTR I'm a bit conflicted. I was desperate for more from the books to be included, but if that had happened, maybe the key story and character development would have been lost and the films would have had less impact.

    Totally with you on the 4 instead of 3 films trend. So unnecessary - part 3 usually ends up as a boring plot development film before the action of the final film!
