    Peter Jackson is about to ruin a childhood favorite book of mine. I will pass on this overwrought and overlong cash grab.

    I can understand the second part.

    But he's not going to ruin it. Because the movies will be good.

    I think thats going to be the series downfalling. You can't split the freaking Hobbit into 3 movies. TLOR were so amazing and they were 3 separate books with 3 times the content of The Hobbit

    Bad move IMO.

    It's supposed to be not just the Hobbit book that they pull from. They'll also be doing stuff from between the Hobbit and the Fellowship. Probably from Tolkien's "Unfinished Tales"

    I think it's a mix between them just having a cash cow on their hands but also with Peter Jackson doing a more thorough job which he did not do with LOTR imo. They left out tons in LOTR. With having 3 movies to work with he won't leave anything out... at least that's my hope.

    While its nice to be thorough, there comes a point where you go from thorough to just dragging things out.

    I could understand two movies, but three seems incredibly long to me.

    Not only is it stretched over 3 movies, but the first movie (and probably the rest) is incredibly long. So long that I've seen critics that I've hardly if ever seen complain about length of movies complain about this movie's length.

    Hopefully it's not a snoozefest.
