    Stop toying with my emotions, PJ, and make this happen!

    If PJ had stuck to the book, there would not be a need for two movies. With the addition of Gandalf perspective and his fight in Dol Guldur, there can be two movies and it is great. But three movies? I think he's stretching it a bit much.

    Have you not read Tolien? There's so much content in LotR, Hobbit, appendices... He could make fifty movies.

    Not all of that content would make for a very good film however. They did include some of it in LOTR but left out some as well. I think their best bet would be to leave it after these two films. Using something from Unfinished Tales or the Silmarillion could go poorly.

    I've read Tolkien. The movie is called The Hobbit, and the story is following Bilbo, mainly. I agree with the addition of the battle at Dol Guldur, because it relates to what happens during that adventure and LotR. However, when the Battle of Five Armies is over and Bilbo is back home, there is no need to tell us what happens after that. That story begins and ends with Bilbo, it's about him. Now if Jackson wants to make another movie about what happened during the 60 years between The Hobbit and Fellowship of the Rings, it's his call. But it should not be called The Hobbit, part 3. Though I don't think it would be much interesting, because not much happens during this. No, I'm wrong. A lot happens but each of these stories are not related to each other, or the outcome is not interesting, so it would not make a good movie.

    Agreed. LotR was long enough without the chapter on Faramir and Eowyn's courtship, or the Scouring of the Shire, or Tom Bombadil, or the Fog on the Barrow-Downs, or the hobbits meeting the Elves just outside of the Shire, or the lengthy Council of Elrond (the real council was long as fuck and recounted Aragorn's attempt to catch Gollum, among other things.) I could go on. PJ did a good job, I think, condensing it into 3 films. If he stayed true to the books, there'd be easily ten movies.

    Other topic : Does anyone find it strange to see Dale so much populated in the production video? Isn't this city supposed to be abandonned since Smaug's coming, and all the survivors founded Esgaroth or Laketown?

    One of the first movies I can say I read the book to! I saw the previews in theaters, took them long enough. They've been talking about it for years and years, I never forgot! A bit surprised it's spread out into two movies, but as long as they don't skip entire parts of the book it will be well worth it. The book was far more involved than the trilogy and far better as far as I'm concerned.

    Looking forward to it.

    The Hobbit will now be a trilogy! *Official*

    Peter Jackson and Ian McKellen have confirmed officially that "The Hobbit" will be three films, instead of two, to accommodate Toliken's notes at the end of 'Return of the King". So, what do you guys think? I am personally for this, but I know that a lot of people are against it.

    "The Hobbit: Riddles in the Dark" sounds REALLY cool.

    Okay, I'm a big fan of Lord of the Rings and I can't wait for the Hobbit... but this doesn't seem right.

    I could understand making it two movies, since there is so much happening. Making it only one movie would have meant a lot got skipped and we'd get a hasty story.
    But three movies? That just seems like they're milking it now. I really hope it doesn't take away from the excitement by stretching it.

    Though I guess it could work, they got lots of appendixes to work from as well. There's so much they could throw in.

    It's just that last time I heard people say that splitting a movie into two parts was a good idea was with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. And I thought part 1 sucked horribly, it could have been completely skipped. I don't want that to happen to the Hobbit, then again... This isn't lame ass harry potter we're talking about. And Peter Jackson has done an awesome job on the first trilogy, so who knows... I guess we just have to trust him.

    Meh. Fine by it. If they have 3 films they want to show then that's good. It's only 8$ ticket so i'm not worried about the money.

  19. #399
    I feel like there was no need on making it a trilogy, and that even two movies are a stretch.

    But they'll make a shit load of money so hey, it's not all that surprising.

    It's fine by me, I think. Their original intent was to do all of The Hobbit as a single movie with an original story as the sequel, acting as a bridge between The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, which I assume is basically going to be what happens here.

    They'll do The Hobbit as two movies, round it out with a third film that includes some of Tolkien's additional appendix materials and bridges The Hobbit with Lord of the Rings.
