Yeah, no, Michael Shannon isn't in the movie. He's definitely not the lead. Also, you can't buy it yet...

If it's a staggered release then you technically can.

Why? I was planning to watch it at some point as I really like the LotR movies.

Let's just say they took some liberties to extend a tiny book into 3 full length movies.

Dismiss this notion from your head.

It's a trilogy of movies about an epic fantasy story of war and dragons set in Tolkien's middle earth, directed by Peter Jackson, with lots of cool special effects and many dwarfs. How could it not be enjoyable?

It needs a start a middle and a finish, it's too long for a single, three is a nice agreeable quantity for things to come it.

3 movies seems like a mighty stretch for a book that was shorter than any one of the LotR books.

They definitely take some liberties to stretch it out but I enjoyed the first movie. I mean, if you're looking for a faithful adaptation, don't bother watching it, but I thought it was worth the time and money to see it. I was entertained.

The LotR movies weren't a particularly faithful adaptation either although they did do the books justice. I'm just having some trouble imagining how The Hobbit could be stretched into 3 movies when it has maybe a quarter of the content that LotR has.

Faithful adaption of the book by itself? Correct, it's not. Faithful adaption of the story in the book, plus all the surrounding stuff fleshed out in later books/appendixes, with a specific aim at providing a direct lead in to the existing LotR trilogy? It absolutely is. Ok. To be fair, Jackson has added some details that weren't in the original sources, but I haven't seen anything so far that contradicts or goes off the original storyline.

It's going to end out being a less direct translation than LotR was, but as some have already pointed out, you're going from one shortish book to a trilogy. That's a lot of extras. Honestly though, I like the direction they're going with this. They could have just told the story of the Hobbit, but that would have meant leaving out a whole hell of a lot of other stuff that would never be put into a film by itself. I mean, it's unlikely anyone will sign off on an "Adventures of young Aragorn" film dedicated to all the backstory bits that occur during/between the events in the Hobbit and the LotR. And that's about the only other ways you'd get all the stuff about the Necromancer and other plots surrounding the return of Sauron and the rise of Mordor which ultimately lead us up to where we are in LotR.

TL;DR - If you enjoyed The Lord of the Rings, you'll probably also enjoy The Hobbit. It's more of the same stuff.

I'd rather watch 3 decent renditions of The Hobbit than 7+ craptacular installments of Harry Potter

Because $30 is more than $10.

They should do a reboot with Chris Columbus directing ALL of them. The first two movies are the best ones, but they could do with a new Harry Potter and Hermione. Can't act to save their lives.

I've only seen about half of the second movie and that was terrible already, if it gets worse after that I don't know why people kept watching.

That'd be pretty impressive since he's been dead for like 600 years.

She was pretty good in "This Is The End". Then again, she was playing herself, so I'm not sure how much that proves.

First movie was pretty faithful to the book, from what I remember. I personally think they should have made the trolls part feel like they stalled for a longer amount of time. What did you find unfaithful?

This and this. I've watched the movies to waste a lazy Sunday here and there, but they could have been a lot better.

I've watched so many Family Channel "Harry Potter Weekends" I've lost count. But as a whole, the things listed on those sites would have had very little effect on the entire movie experience.

I'm reasonably certain he was talking about the first Hobbit film. Unless there's a scene in the first Potter book where they're captured by Trolls and stalling for time.

The movie was great (saw it last Friday), although very long. Damn you, 50 oz soft drinks! Anyway, Desolation of Smaug is definitely better than the first movie. I missed some of the singing... well, I missed The Misty Mountains Cold... but the fact that there aren't 40 minutes of running around was a relief.

Interesting with Legolas in the mix. I liked the references to The Lord of the Rings.
