New Line Cinema (Warner Bros. Pictures) released their new action/fantasy flick, "The Hobbit 3: The Battle Of The Five Armies," into theaters this weekend.

Don’t expect to see Peter Jackson ever directing a superhero movie

19 December 2014 12:35 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now that he’s finished up with J.R.R. Tokien’s Middle-earth following the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Peter Jackson is starting to turn his attention to future projects, but it seems we should rule out the possibility of him ever directing a superhero movie as the filmmaker has stated that he’s got no interest in the genre, and has never so much as read a comic book.

“I don’t really like the Hollywood blockbuster bandwagon that exists right now,” said Jackson in a chat with MovieFone. “The industry and the advent of all the technology, has kind of lost its way. It’s become very franchise driven and superhero driven. I’ve never read a comic book in my life so I’m immediately at a disadvantage and I have no interest in that. So now it’s time for us to step back. »

Criticized heavily for being broken up into three films – all well over two hours – The Hobbit: Battle Of The Five Armies actually succeeds in justifying that decision. The problem is that three »

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Review

16 December 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

At one point in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Dwalin (Graham McTavish) tells a greedy, paranoid Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), "You are lesser now than you have ever been."  The same could be said to director and co-writer Peter Jackson and the conclusion of his prequel trilogy.  In an interview with EW earlier this year, Jackson stressed that it was important to keep cutting back to main characters during the action scenes, "otherwise the audience gets battle fatigue."  He should have taken his own advice as this trilogy is clearly spent and left with almost nothing but hollow spectacle, hypocrisy, poor characterization, and at times becoming an outright embarrassment.  If The Lord of the Rings trilogy is one of cinema's best, then Battle of the Five Armies cements The Hobbit trilogy as one of its most disappointing. After tying up the loose end of killing Smaug (voiced »
