The Hobbit, the Tolkein Fan Edit

tolkienedit_iconThere has been an interesting rework of The Hobbit by Peter Jackson, with the 3 gargantuan episodes stripped of all of their extraneous material and cut down to a 4 hour movie that is more faithful to the original book. You can check it out at The Hobbit: The Tolkien Edit. I haven’t watached it yet, but it is on my list. I wonder what John C. Wright would make of it given his well know hatred for The Desolation of Smaug that he really took to task in Transhuman and Subhuman: Essays on Science Fiction and Awful Truth.
