So, uh, yeah. I’ve never read any of the Lord of the Rings series, I’ll admit that. Haven’t read anything by J.R.R. Tolkien. Neither proud nor ashamed of it. The movies are great, albeit rather long and slow at times, but overall they are fantastically made movies. I can’t speak to how close they are to the novels, but I can say that they’re definitely epic and just masterfully done. Do you know how much effort was put into every single tiny aspect of the movie? Do you really? Go read the IMDb pages of all the movies and read this Cracked article that includes a section on how each piece of orc army was handcrafted with a personal individual story. I mean DAY-UM.
Therefore, in honor of a day of reading Tolkien’s works… here’s a video of how The Hobbit should have ended.
