Not a big deal, in 5 years those that stick up for this disaster of a prequel will trashing it just as hard. By then they will be objective, will have gotten over their own personal investment and anticipation in film. Bitterness will linger for a year or two, but a year after the final film comes out the Hobbit Trilogy, if it carries on the way its going, will just be viewed as another missed opportunity.

Critical failure, 55 percent Metacritic, 65 percent RT and a tragic 50 percent rotten top critics.

It's inevitable that one day this film will be viewed as nothing more than the second coming of Episode 1, nothing can change that. But hopefully Jackson will have enough class to leave the original trilogy alone, and not tinker tailor soldier fvck with the classic moments in those films.

But part of me doubts it.
