    I don't know about making this book into 3 films.... At first, I was pissed that they were making 2 movies to cover this book, but then I got to thinking about the battle of five armies and the fact that Bilbo gets knocked out early on, but 3 movies is too much. I am afraid that it will be too drawn out and boring. The Hobbit is shorter than any of the LOTR books and is a self contained story. One of the things I love so much about The Hobbit is the relentless action and pace of the story. With 3 movies, it just seems like things will get boring. WTF


    Yup, totally agree with Jane. As much as it might be true about needing more movie length to cover the book, it reeks money greedy bastard scent. If the movies was like 3hrs each, ok, that a lot of content, but we all know it most likely going to be less than 2hrs, so... Back to reeking in money making scheme rather than trying to be true to the story like you fanboy hope, and yup, not going to see the movie at theatre.


    I happen to agree with Jane. If PJ cares so much about fidelity to the novel and wants to preserve every scene and dialog from the book, then why not make 6 parts, or seven? The truth is that PJ thinks only about money and cashing in is his main objective. Besides I wonder how film fans are gonna react to the changes in the adaptation because knowing PJ changes are bound to appear. Anyway, I love Tolkien's book so much that I won't be seeing these films at all.


    I think I just came!! This is going to be great! ^_^


    **1 movie per book**



    Have you even read The Hobbit, or the LOTR series? Have you ever picked these books up? I'm going to assume no, because if you had you would understand that even 1 book per movie for LOTR was not enough, hence the extended additions of the movies, which again missed a lot of the story. The Hobbit is the longest and hardest story of them all, which means that we will get close to the whole of it in 3 movies. I was personally shocked they were going to only make 2 when I first heard that. I was shocked that they only made one movie per book for LOTR, it should have been 2. The Hobbit and LOTR are not like Twilight or The Hunger Games (granted I love THG), they are difficult, and very large stories that need a lot of time to get the whole of it. So again, don't start talking until you know the actual facts.


    Dear Jane, if you're going to make such a comment please make sure you have the right info. Harry Potter was the 1st to do so, then Twilight and THG chose to split the last movie into two.


    And we all have seen Rex Grossman's brilliant work right ? Yes imagine that someone in a capitalist society such as the one you all support is trying to make money.


    Um Jane, you do realize that the 3rd film will include a lot of unused content from the lord of the rings, and the hobbit was a long story (not a long book a long story) that needs atleast 2 films to be told in and peter jackson wants to tell in in three so we get the full experiance


    Oh wow, Jane knows a lot about the Film Industry. Is she a filmcologist? I bet she knows Peter Jackson. I do, and he's actually a money grubbing hack who releases shitty films to add on to his mansion made of golden bricks.
