Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 79 - The Hobbit Trilogy

Since the Hobbit trilogy has finished disappointing us all, now seems like the perfect time to access just what went wrong (besides the incredibly obvious stuff like turning a slim book into three bloated films, or making every effort to make the films look as shitty as possible). As fans of the original Lord of the Rings films, Matt and I approach Peter Jackson's work from a place of love, even as we mock it. Think of this as an intervention. We're just trying to help you, Peter, so that you can do better the next time.
