There’s no shortage of parody and/or critique videos for some of the biggest blockbusters of the year nowadays, but rarely are they put together with both an admiration for the material and a keen sense of the film’s shortcomings.  Such is the case with the latest “How It Should Have Ended” video, which takes on Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.  Instead of simply pointing out the film’s faults, the video in and of itself is actually a really funny piece of work.  Hit the jump to take a look.

Via HISHE.  I suggest you watch all the way to the end.

    Wow, that song was pretty EPIC!! xD

    Brilliant, keeping the future installments of Hobbit & past installments of LOTR in mind.

    Hehe. So much better than that bloated pompous mess Pajamas passed off as a work of Tolkien.

    Um, I hate to burst ever one’s bubble and stuff, but the eagle ride wouldn’t work. I don’t mean to be a downer because I absolutely love HISHEs and I think they are absolutely funny, but I also love the movie and book The Hobbit and I love LOTR. First off, Gandalf didn’t take the ring from Bilbo right away because he wasn’t sure if it was the right ring or just a different magic ring (there were a couple). Also, the eagle ride wouldn’t have worked because in the Hobbit book, it says that the eagles can’t take the group to the Lonely Mountain because (spoiler alert) the men living near it would shoot down the eagles. The only exception was in the last part of The Hobbit, during the big multi-army battle, the men were distracted and the eagles could fly in to fight. Plus the ring does come in handy when Bilbo faces the dragon n the end. This isn’t a logical ending and I wouldn’t suggest that it is a better ending, but it is a really funny ending, like all the HISHEs. Just wanted to put that out. Love HISHEs, love LORT and love The Hobbit, -??? ???????
