  1. Like it, but they’ve obviously added A LOT from the original book The Hobbit. Not complaining, just as long as Legolas doesn’t surf on a shield down a staircase again…

  2. Funny, I don’t remember the part of the Hobbit where Thorin or any of the dwarves tell Thranduil anything about why they’re there or where they’re going. Did I just miss that part, or did Peter Jackson fabricate that entire plot point?

    • He is making The Hobbit into 3 long movies – he’s adding in a LOT of additional content, some based on other Tolkien material, some created by him to make it all tie together. Not sure how you missed that.

  3. This will be awesome. Have faith in Jackson brothers and sisters. No one else right now could be doing these movies as much justice as him. Just be happy this is being made at this scale at all.

    • Why? It’s just going to turn one of the greatest sagas of English literature into a parade of cheap cliches, poor story-telling, and B-movie tropes. Oh, wait, too late…

      Jackson lost all claim to the viewers’ faith when he made the Army of the Dead into the Evil Dead, and Azog into an albino Naavi.

  4. The only good thing about this being three movies long is that in 10 years when kids are doing a book report on the Hobbit they will realize that it is faster to read the book then watch the movie. Long live literature!
