M4's The Hobbit Book Edit Featured
FanFix November 19, 2021 4029
Being a diehard fan of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy and J.R.R. Tolkien's books, I, like many, was heartbroken with Warner Bros. adaptation of The Hobbit. But M4 was able to make me fall in love with the story all over again. I've seen several Hobbit edits, and this is easily the best. It is an incredibly faithful adaptation of the novel while being consistent in tone with the Lord of the Rings film trilogy. It feels like the cohesive movie we should have gotten instead of the bloated trilogy we did. In my mind, this is the only version of The Hobbit that deserves the title and will be the version that I watch in tandem with the LotR trilogy. I cannot praise M4 enough for his Hollywood quality editing, his beautiful visual effects, his love of the source material, and his commitment to this project.
