Excuse me good sir but are you accusing me of hating on The Hobbit? You may accuse me of accusing New Zealand of a sordid attempt at world domination, but do not accuse me of hating The Hobbit. Because I happened to love the movie. And if it can be accused of having too many excessive scenes, the same can be said of Lawrence of Arabia and Ben Hur. Some movies are made to be art. They end neither too late nor too early but precisely when they mean to.
