    I wonder if it will have anything to do with what Tolkien wrote?

    Likely nothing, this is an accurate depiction of the geek reaction to this movie.

    @Peabody-Martini

    I strongly resemble that remark!

    Three movies for LOTR I could understand. That was three books. Three movies for “The Hobbit”? One 250 page book? Can you say overwhelming greed, boys and girls?

    Peter Jackson had to cut a LOT out of the LoTR books while making the movie. (e.g. Tom Bombadil) He now has the Hollywood clout to make “The Hobbit” movies the way he probably would have liked to have made the LoTR movies. That’s not greed, that’s artistic vision.

    The fact that they are adding stuff that wasn’t even in the book and that they went form 2 to 3 movies, makes me lean more towards “Hollywood Greed” than “Artistic Vision.”

    That’s a rather dodgy-looking hobbit, althoug anything’s better than a Rankin-Bass hobbit:

    Looks more like a frog.

    Was going to be two movies, then Jackson decided to include The Necromancer (mentioned in passing in the Hobbit and in the appendix of LOTR) aka Sauron.

    Yeah, Bilbo sure looks weird in that version.

    Actually LOTR was six books published in three volumes.

    I’m surprised no one commented on the sub-title of the movie. There and Back Again was the original sub-title that Tolkien gave the Hobbit, they have a different sub-title for the movie but I can’t remember what it is right now.

    “Was going to be two movies, then Jackson decided to include The Necromancer (mentioned in passing in the Hobbit and in the appendix of LOTR) aka Sauron.”


    Yeah, from what I understand, anything in the Hobbit movies that wasn’t in “The Hobbit” at least comes from Tolkein’s other Middle Earth writings, and isn’t being made up from scratch (as I said, though, that’s just my understanding). Add to that Jackson’s track record, and I’m not worried. Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy wasn’t perfect (or even perfectly faithful), but it’s probably as good a rendition of the books as it would be possible to make; I expect the same from “The Hobbit.” (And I couldn’t wish for a better Bilbo Baggins than Martin Freeman.)


    And hey, even if it IS a disaster, the books will still exist — which is how I feel about “Watchmen,” and “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” (which was not Martin Freeman’s fault).
