Chen G. 2931 Posted June 8, 2018 Share Posted June 8, 2018 Again, as long as it is from Tolkien's writing, lets not fuss about which of his pieces its from: "The Hobbit" (1966) is Bilbo-centric. "Durin's Folk" is Thorin-centric. Jackson pulled more from the latter, you'd have pulled from the former. Since they both deal with the same story, it was very much within Jacksons' prerogative to choose the way he did, and I like it better that way. You'd have liked it the other way around - that's fair. But both are faitful adaptations, and its not fair to criticise the one by comparing it to the other or the other's source material - the ol' apples and kumquats comparison. Like I said, I was glad to learn that there's a good fan-cut that reinstitutes the narrative of The Hobbit (1966) for the likes of you - to each his own.
