A lot of fun (in a tongue-in-cheek way)
17 January 2014 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Who the Bloody 'Ell, is Tauriel? - An interesting question, the creators of this tongue-in-cheek dig at Peter Jackson's detractors ask.

There are lots of people online and in print, who question The Hobbit director using his artistic license to 'adjust' the story of Tolkien's Hobbit to suit the direction he wanted his movie to go.

Chris Winchester and friends have created a wonderfully funny and satirical parody of these detractors, without out-and-out insulting them. "Who the 'Ell is Tauriel" pokes fun at all those who argue that Jackson has strayed too far from the text, without being specific in who it is actually parodying.

It's bloody catchy too, you'll find yourself humming or singing it for days or even weeks after.

Well done all those involved. A great piece of satire :)
