Unexpected Hobbit

I'm pretty disappointed with this.  Sure it's all epic and everything but it's not great movie making. I don't want you to leave stuff out, I don't want you to add stuff in. I don't want comic relief for fucking sure.  The visuals should have been dirtier and stupider.  The drama should have been based on dialog and situations not CG.  The definitive version is yet to be made.

It's so frustrating - multi-million dollar movie making and the overall tone is wrong,  the sense of historic age is said but not felt.   I don't see decades in the buildings and artifacts I see one-dimensional made-for-movie props.  It feels phoned-in, everything is stereotype - made for stupid audiences .  Lots of costumes and hairstyles, little character development or emotional subtlety.  There is no sense of a journey or quest,  no sense of overall uncertainty or doom in the plan,  no questions in the minds of characters.  Mainstream crap.

Park Point Towards the end, heading East.  Can't really ride on the pure beach sand, dry or wet.  Some success over driftwood and piles of debris.  Sand with plants is perfect however.  Awesome perspective.  Thanks fat bike.
