Later, del Toro
The Internet is all abuzz right now: Guillermo del Toro won’t be directing the two Hobbit films. Big bummer – I thought he would do the series some justice. I don’t anticipate them picking Peter Jackson to direct them, though, as New Line and him were at odds over it.
On the other hand, I’m seriously hoping that they take this chance to make the films not be in 3D. This new fad is really killing my soul, as I feel it’s just excessive and a marketing ploy of sorts. Further, when I saw Avatar with those glasses on, it just felt very blurry – like none of the edges were sharp or something.
Anyway. Sorry to see del Toro go from this one, but here’s hoping the films are still awesome.
