The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug (Not Review)

tauriel-kicks-ass-in-new-tv-spot-for-the-hobbit-the-desolation-of-smaug-watch-now-149430-a-1385366847So I’ve been reading a lot of reviews for the new Hobbit film and may I just politely point out that when you are watching an adaptation of a book, it is going to be something entirely different to the original novel despite how ‘faithful’ the director has been to the author. One review exclaims that ‘new characters have been added – a woman for heaven’s sake! And what? Are you aware of all the theories that Tolkien was not particularly a fan of the female gender and his books can be said to be quite sexist? I’m writing about something like this in my dissertation for uni which includes talking about women in the films and how they relate to the books. If you write a review on the film, please write it about the film and not how it compares to the book, thanks. Also no spoilers because I haven’t seen in yet 😉
