Hobbit Satire

While watching SNL this weekend, I was particularly amused by this sketch about "The Hobbit." It reminded of me of my main complaint about the film.

And another piece here.

The last and only thing I've posted on my blog before this was also an article from "The Onion." I really like satire as a form of critique. It's snarky, but I think comedy is a more lighthearted way to point out errors than writing a full on pan.

  1. You raise a great point that comedy can highlight gradations and nuances of a performance/pop culture item in a way that a full on pan can't. I personally can't wait for the Onion's Joe Biden autobiography: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/17/the-onions-joe-biden-getting-his-own-autobiography_n_2499139.html.
