Well, that depends if you're willing to potentially butcher an author's work just to be more "inclusive." Though, to be fair, I think most of the criticisms towards the Hobbit films have to do with the fact that they tried to cram too much of everything into the films.
I did think that the plot was a bit stretched out (especially when most of the last movie's events happened in one day???) I wouldn't immediately denounce the film as butchering the author's work because it's faithful to the children's book. Unlike a lot of adaptions, Tolkien wasn't alive to consult about plot details and he left A LOT of unfinished writing, and some details didn't agree with each other. The Silmarillion wasn't even finished, so we would never know what Tolkien wanted it to be. As long as it doesn't directly contradict the canon I wouldn't care. The Azog thing, though...if he wasn't out to kill Thorin, they would have just used another Orc. It really was Peter Jackson's vision of the book in the end. I'm fine with that.
Did anyone complain about Arwen replacing Glorfindel in the Fellowship of the Ring? I thought it was a bit cheesy. Quite a few reasons for the dislike of including Tauriel was about her appearance only -.- Shallow, but that's people for ya.
As for the art, I don't think many people could dream up of the artwork created from this one movie. I know Saria tried watching the animated Hobbit and LoTR films lmao
Considering how many women have been Avengers in the comics (including Wasp as one of the founding members), that isn't exactly a perfect comparison (and especially considering the ever-changing nature of comics; in continuity, the film series is a separate universe in itself).
Lol I didn't even read the comics, at most, I saw some covers. I wouldn't have even cared for the comics if I didn't see the movie, and I bet a lot of people thought the same about the Hobbit and LoTR. But if the Avengers for some reason was made up of JUST GUYS in the movie, would as many people have bothered to watch it? I'm sure Johansson's fame brought some fanboys who were "too cool" to read comics >_>
It's gender vs sex. Though I wouldn't say there's a huge discrepancy in characters from the Lord of the Rings books.
More like not using female as a noun for humans. Other than statistics/research it's not really appropriate. Women are more than just their biological sex after all.
I'm pretty sure I'm at LEAST better looking than mark ruffalo and chris hemsworth, although chris evans has me beat. RDJ is iffy, could go either way.
Not sure if you're kidding or your ego really is that big ._. but Chris Hemsworth is like a 9.999999...xD with Voldemort being a 0 or less and
dahans the bear
being 10.00000000, not just for his looks but also his really cute charm.
