I'd describe myself as "desensitized" at this stage. I didn't like them but I can't bring myself to really care too much.

I'm fairly convinced that for all the weaknesses of Jackson and his team as filmmakers I'd argue that the production seems to have been badly compromised by heavy executive interference - surprisingly, seemingly much heavier than with "The Lord of the Rings" when Jackson was a far less established director. That kind of interference rarely makes for a successful composition in my view.

The "trilogy" is still a massively wasted opportunity, but it hasn't had enough of a cultural impact to engender much of an emotional response from me.
