    Willow was evenly entertaining through out the entire film… unlike The Hobbit.

    • will

      Is this the first Hobbit hate comment that I detect on Collider? Because if it is, STOP RIGHT THERE. I’ve had to endure five months of TDKR hate comments, and this will not continue any longer!

      • MisterED

        What “hate”? Calm down you fanatic. There is no hate in my reply. I was merely pointing out the truth. The Hobbit started out beautifully. But then for nearly 2 hours, it dragged on and took forever to get going again. Until Gollem hit the screen and from then on it went without a flaw.

        And I don’t give a damn what you had to endure with TDKR. My opinion is my opinion and this is a public place where I can give it. Can’t deal with that? Well that’s your problem, bud.

        Willow was entertaining through out the whole thing. There was always something that kept you engaged with the story and characters. But with the Hobbit, it had to agree with most of the reviews in that it felt bloated and saturated with filler for a good chunk of it.

        But overall it was not a bad film, though. So calm down.

        Sheesh!

        let nature take its course dude. He needs to hate something to exist.

      • MisterED

        LOL Someone says something that rubs a LotR fanatic the wrong way and you get the exact same reaction as a “Belieber” or “Twihard” would whenever someone says anything critical about Justin Bieber or the Twilight movies.

        I thought you guys were a bit more mature.

        What I said was a valid criticism. I mean not everyone is a full on LotR nerd that is willing to sit through nearly 2 hours of filler just to get to an actual story worth telling. The Hobbit is not a bad movie at all. But it could’ve used some heavy editing. Lots of scenes drag on too long. Needlessly so. And to think the DVD/Bluray will be even longer.

        Oh well… anyway, Willow! Entertaining from beginning to end… unlike the Hobbit (I keed!)

      • tarek

        We don’t need no Hobbit haters
        We don’t need no thought control
        No dark sarcasm in Collider
        MisterEd leave us please alone
        Hey! MisterEd! Leave us please alone!

        “There is no hate in my reply. I was merely pointing out the truth.” Your opinion isn’t the “truth”: it’s just an opinion. Now, who’s the “fanatic”?

  • chad vaughn

    Joanne Whalley was always an underrated babe

    • Elitist Prick

      chad vaughn has the most sensible thought in this thread.

      • chad vaughn

        Thank you Elitist Prick

    • Bobert

      I havent seen this movie since I was a kid in the 80s and she’s pretty much the only thing I remember. LOL.

  • DREDD

    About time! A beautiful movie! With a stunning musical score. So underrated! A fantasy film with charm and a sense of magic and fun humour without being silly. I just wish it got the sequels it deserved. Joanne whalley with red hair-stunning! And this is also my favorite Val Kilmer role too.
    Always thought the evil queen would have been a good wife to Emperor Palpatine.
