    Its not a prequel!

    Although, granted, it is self referential and has crowd pleasing cameos from members of the original cast... but its not a prequel.

    I hate Peter Jackson. Well, let me rephrase that, I hate what he's become.

    The Dark Knight rises - Really enjoyed it. Ending seem more clearer and defined then when i saw it in the cinema.

    A couple of scenes lost there edge due to the repeat viewing bane back break being one, but others gained a sense of poinancy - alfred.

    Anne Hathway is the real star of the show though, nails selina kyle. Quite a few stories, and themes are well constructed and brought to conclusions.

    9/10

    Watched Warlords last night.

    Very good film.

    I'd say probably 93/100

    Considering this started from kinky_mong wanting thoughts on which versions to watch, I've no idea whether he's seen them or not ? Spoiler tags safer than spoilers.
    Yes, I haven't actually seen Aliens properly but seen the other three so the spoiler tags are appreciated.

    A prequel is something that is written after a story but set before it.

    So the hobbit is not a prequel.

    @LeoliansBro

    Think he's referring to the fact that The Hobbit was written before TLOTR. A prequel can only really be "a prequel" if the events are written/created after the latter story has already been released. With that rationale, I'm unsure whether Star Wars I, II, and III count as prequels or not, as Lucas already had a vague idea of the plot in place before he started A New Hope. Actually, scrap that, it's just better to think of them as having never existed.

    The Hobbit has had mixed reviews, but of all the ones you could point to you went for the Economist...? I mean, I respect the publication for their insightful business and international politics articles, but their review section...? Give me a fucking break. You might as well point to an NME film review, if you're going down that path.

    /pedant mode.

    It's not a prequel in book form, but technically the movie could be called a prequel.

    No, technically it could be called an adaptation ;P

    it remains to be seen, but it sounds like The Hobbit has enough new material and is produced in such a way that it could indeed be classed as a prequel.

    At the risk of repeating myself: it's an adaptation!

    Even the new/extra is (mostly if not entirely) taken from other Tolkien-penned material, if not from The Hobbit itself. Whilst it is a story telling events predating a previously told story (in film version), I feel it slightly disingenuous to call it a prequel. It's an adaptation.

    That's not to say that it isn't 'cashing in' a little - the splitting it into three films leaves it open to criticism - but it's not really a prequel (the mere existence of which are always money making exercises).

    Edit: not that any commercially-released films are anything other than money making exercises, of course. I just personally find the creation of prequels a cynical endeavour. I just can't consider The Hobbit as a prequel in the sense that the term is meant when applied to films.

    I think it's very important that we get this nailed down once and for all.

    The book is not a prequel, in that it was written first.

    The movie is made AFTER the sequel to the book. Therefore the movie IS a prequel. In my opinion.

    AND YES< IT IS AN ADAPTATION TOO!

    @LeoliansBro

    We're kind of going in circles now, aren't we.

    I feel the need to link to THIS...

    ...not sure it helps though as you could argue The Hobbit fits as either a prequel, adaptation, or even an installment.

    You can consider it a prequel if you want, but I personally will consider it an adaptation.

    This is what I was trying to say but it just came out as waffle.
