The Hobbit by Vladimir Latyshev

This is soooo disappointing.

Once again it turns out Russia (or, more correctly, the old U.S.S.R.) invented/created something the Western World had long (erroneously) taken credit for: The Hobbit.

Here follows Skazochnoye puteshestviye mistera Bilbo Begginsa Khobbita, The Fabulous Journey of Mr. Bilbo Baggins the Hobbit. 1

  1. Can’t believe Peter Jackson went ahead with his overblown, 3 film snoozefest after viewing this.

    1. Unofficially , sure. But one would be hard-pressed to dispute Vladimir Latyshev’s claim, seeing as he passed into the same oblivion as the old U.S.S.R. And, much like those sneaky Reds’ claim to have originated baseball, pizza and Heather Locklear, it really doesn’t matter as long as the shekels flow to the proper hands, yes?

  1. I was sent this link some time ago by XO. Even though I understand what they are talking about, I couldn’t watch more than 45 seconds. To be fair I haven’t seen any LOR and Hobbit movies either.

    1. Seen the LoR flics, won’t bother with the Hobbit until all 3 are in the can.

      I watched the first 5 minutes or so. I don’t have any Russian but it appeared that everyone he met could not believe he was named ‘Bilbo”…

Something to say...?
