Let me start off by saying that I am a total Tolkein nut. I read the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings before I was 10. I watched the three Lord of the Rings films the instant that they came out and I also own the extended editions, which makes me deeply sad, not that I care.
When I heard that the Hobbit was to be made into two films by Peter Jackson I was ecstatic and I can't wait for the first one to come out.
Now, I was browsing on the Huffington Post the other day (as a good Liberal should) and I found something that provoked a very strong reaction from me.
It was this... thing. I won't describe it, but let me just say that it doesn't bare a lot of resemblence to the actual plot of the Hobbit.
