'The Hobbit' and Other Little People Movies, From Least to Most Belittling

  • NextMovie
"The Hobbit" hits theaters this Friday and besides all the hobbits, orcs, elves, humans, dragons and Gollums, there's also a group of sturdy folk who form the backbone of the movie: Dwarves.

This isn't the first time dwarves have been portrayed in film, of course — and it's not the first time that little people have been played on screen by regular-sized folks, either. But "The Hobbit," with its band of stout and heroic dwarven heroes, is undoubtedly one of the most prominent portrayals of little people in Hollywood's long and checkered history.

So that got us thinking: Where is "The Hobbit" going to end up ranking on the scale of most positive to most demeaning portrayals of little people in film? To help you decide that for yourself, here's a quick continuum of nine prominent movies featuring little people, ranked from most positive to most demeaning.

Captain Eo, 1986.

Directed by Francis Ford Coppola.

Written by Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas and Rusty Lemorande.

Starring Michael Jackson, Angelica Huston, Dick Shawn, Tony Cox, Debbie Lee Carrington and Gary DePew.

Created as a '4-d' Disney theme park attraction, Captain Eo stars the King of Pop Michael Jackson as the eponymous spaceship captain, who sets off on a mission with his ragtag crew to deliver a gift to the Supreme Leader (Angelica Huston), a wicked queen on a dark and desolate world.

Produced at a cost of $30m and running at just seventeen minutes, the original 3D film was accompanied by physical 'in-theatre' effects such as lasers, smoke and starfields.

Hot Rods & Droids: A George Lucas Profile (Part 3)

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of legendary filmmaker George Lucas in the third of a six-part feature... read parts one and two.

“We both have a tradition that, when we have a film opening for which there are high expectations, we get out of town,” stated filmmaker Steven Spielberg, who vacationed with colleague George Lucas in Hawaii while Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) and Star Wars (1977) were being theatrically released. Lucas asked Spielberg what he would like to do as his follow-up effort. “I said I wanted to do a James Bond film. United Artists had approached me after Sugarland Express [1974] and asked me to do a film for them. I said, ‘Sure give me the next James Bond film.’ But they said they couldn’t do that. Then George said he had a film that was even better than a James Bond. It was called Raiders of the Lost Ark

Bitch Slap (2010)

  • Planet Fury
Directed by Rick Jacobson

Written by Eric Gruendemann and Rick Jacobson

Featuring America Olivo, Erin Cummings, Julia Voth, Kevin Sorbo, Lucy Lawless, Zoe Bell, Minae Noji, Debbie Lee Carrington

Review by Stacie Ponder

The problem with the "exploitation" label is that it's used so liberally that the viewer rarely knows what to expect from a film boasting that it's oh so grindhouse. Will the film feature naughty nuns fucking each other with crucifixes, or Nazi prison wardens torturing naked chicks? Bikers, cannibals, or biker-cannibals? When you're a female (or, to qualify, a female who cares about the portrayals of women in film) even more questions arise- most notably, will the movie be so offensive that my vagina itself will grab a megaphone and stage some sort of protest? Should you be wrestling with any of these issues before checking out Bitch Slap, well, you can rest easy. In fact, rather

Give A Big Hand To "Bitch Slap"

  • SneakPeek
"Bitch Slap" is a new action film directed by Rick Jacobson, from a screenplay by Jacobson and Eric Gruendemann.

Described as a post-modern throwback to Russ Meyer, Roger Corman 'el cheapo' exploitation films of the 1950's-1970's, music for "Bitch Slap" was composed by John R. Graham with cinematography by Stuart Asbjornsen.

The film begins when three 'bad girls', including a stripper, drug-running killer and corporate powerbroker, arrive at a remote desert hideaway to extort a ruthless underworld boss.

"...Soon things quickly spin out of control as allegiances change, truths are revealed, other criminals arrive and the fate of the world hangs in the balance as the trio are forced to confront a villain much worse than they ever expected...themselves..."

Erin Cummings plays 'Hel', America Olivo is 'Camero' and Julia Voth is 'Trixie', with Lucy Lawless as 'Mother Superior', Minae Noji as 'Kinki', Kebin Sorbo as 'Mr.
