This sums up a lot of the problems I’ve had with films recently — Guardians of the Galaxy, the Star Trek reboots… basically every geek film of the last few years.

    I couldn’t agree more about The Hobbit movies. I loved Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy of movies, but he misread The Hobbit from the get-go and discarded all the character depth for chase scenes and extended battle sequences. It’s not The Hobbit. It’s a big dumb movie(s).
