Of course it's a matter of taste, what else would it be?

But unless we all just agree that every single movie in the world is equally good because of subjective tastes - there's room for debate about ratings.

Now, I can fully accept that if you don't care about certain things that I care about - like staying true to Tolkien (especially in terms of tone) and not stretching things with padding like butter over too much bread and so on - then you might like The Hobbit. That's fine.

But I'll have a harder time accepting people who claim it does justice to the writing, though even justice can be very subjective.
