My reaction was about the same.  It was okay.  I had a good time, mainly laughing at the parts that were the most ridiculous or overly melodramatic

@PagansOedipalComplex @Santa Blahs I don't play guitar...it's an instrument I've wanted to learn, just haven't got around to it yet.  Yeah I imagine you'd need to do some rearranging since the techniques to playing would be so different, I just can't give you any advice at the moment since I just don't have experience with it.

@Diane Kemp Nguyen that's a really interesting piece of advice I haven't heard before, it makes total sense.

Thanks for all the advice VND!

So although Viet dad shut down me and gf's plans to spend a day in SF together, he has now invited me to go along with their whole family for a day trip next week.  So I will get to see her again soon after all, and meet the parents and siblings

Kinda nervous though, he probably planned this intentionally so he can spend a day scouting me out

@Diane Kemp Nguyen It sounds to me like

@DKD Yeah that's what I'm thinking.  If I end up marrying this girl, she'd be the first non-white member of my dad's whole side of the family...which would be a good thing

@Math Space Cat the stuff from th appenices wasn't the problem, it was all the random stuff they added that wasn't even in the book like extra CGI orc villians that kept constantly chasing them and never getting killed off, preposterous unrealistic action sequences, shoehorned love subplots that feel forced, and annoying af characters that get way too much screen time like Alfrid

@efb short answer is they made a lot of same mistakes as what happened with the Star Wars prequels.

If you have a bit of time there's a guy on Youtube who did a fantastic analysis of why the Hobbit films failed to live up to Lotr.  He does it in the style of the RedLetterMedia reviews if you've ever seen those

@DodgerDodger Yep!  Exact same thing that happened with the Star Wars prequels.  I think in both cases, the thing that made the original trilogies great was because they were a huge gamble for the studios, so Jackson and Lucas, both unproven directors at the times, had entire crews around them helping them and making important decisions so there was a balance.

With the star wars prequels and the hobbit movies, the studios knew they would make boatloads of cash no matter what so they just gave Jackson and Lucas free reign and probably no one on set ever questioned their authority since they assumed they knew what they were doing
