This Is Why Russia Restricted Beer: The Soviet Hobbit Movie


“My Preciouski, Comrade!”

Did you find fault with Peter Jackson’s version of The Hobbit? Wish it were shorter and had less CGI?

Do we have the movie for you. It’s an epic fantasy movie that would have made Georges Melies proud, had it been completed in 1905. Unfortunately, it came 80 years later in the Soviet Union, when the technology to tell the tale should theoretically have improved. Well, it is in color, at least.

The greatest adventure…is watching this bizarro-world take on a blockbuster.
