The Hobbit II: Electric Boogaloo

Just watched the trailer on mute, since a guest is sleeping in the other room. Clearly, I didn't get the full experience, so I can't comment full on it, but one thing did jump out at me.

How is it that the the CGI is worse in 2013 than in 2003? Seriously, those CGI Elves? Would have been dated in the frickin' 1990s.

I have seen and heard the trailer for The Hobbit II: Electric Boogaloo. Unbelievably portentous, but, hey, it's a trailer. (And it's Peej trying desperately to make The Hobbit look like an actual sequel to LOTR, which it totally isn't.)

But now, having heard it, one of the great questions of LOTR has finally been answered. Having heard Thranduil's opening voiceover, it is now bleedingly clear where Movie!Legolas got his Captain Obvious tendencies from.
