did anyone else notice the "director" looking at the field monitor in direct sunlight without a hood on it? can't imagine he'd see much.
For me, the reason LOTR is better than the Hobbit comes down to the character development and the character arc. In LOTR we see Frodo, Sam, Aragorn and others change from movie to movie. We see how the ring is affecting their characters and those around them. We are presented with a Bilbo who is dark, brooding, and somehow unknown to the audience - there is a seeming urge to feel lack of trust with him. In The Hobbit series, however, we only get minor glimpses in between the often times pointless use of CGI (two mountains fighting with each other). Bilbo doesn't change the way innocent Frodo changes in LOTR. For me, this was made me enjoy the story less in The Hobbit.
