Goofs

When the horn is playing in Dale after the battle, there is only one shown. However, the horn proceeds to play double-stops (which are near impossible), then triple stops/chords (which are impossible). While it is possible that the horn in Erebor plays some notes, that still only accounts for the double stops and it probably would have been shown in the film. The cheeks of the man playing the horn remain inflated, suggesting he is playing a single, long note, while the music changes notes. See more »

Tolkien will haunt Peter Jackson
10 December 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

If you haven't read The Hobbit and/or if you like the first two movies: I envy you of sorts...

If someone had told me some years ago that I would consider walking out from a Tolkien movie opening night, I would have slapped them with a cod. Or a salmon. The Hobbit trilogy is crap.

It's little more than a long list of invented battles and love stories to attract a widest possible audience, as well as loads of idiotic storyline to make the story slide into the Lord of the Rings movies as smooth as an Elven ass.

I understand that some adaption is required from book to screen, but when dealing with a book more or less only surpassed by the Bible and the IKEA catalogue, one should tread carefully.

Do yourself a favor. Read the book. Let your mind be the big screen.
