3 Hobbit movies? Are you serious?
Ok so I would be ecstatic if I thought they were making 3 The Hobbit films for the sake of being true to the book. Any book to movie adaptation is always going to have things missing. It's just a guarantee. Even a two parter. But that's not the reason for the trilogy. Oh no. Jackson has decided to take world of middle earth and try and make it his own. He's adding things in that are not in the books, and even though some of it is from Tolkien himself a lot of it will be up to Jackson's interpretation and don't get me wrong, he did an amazing job on The Lord of the Rings, but the ONLY FUCKING REASON they are creating a trilogy out of 1 book is so that they can pump it for all the money it's worth. Now instead of having to spend £5-£7 for a cinema ticket to see two films I will have to spend it to see three. That's £15- £24 one films alone, then with all 3 DVD/Blu-rays and then later probably extended editions or limited edition box sets that's a whole fucking lot of money they're trying to get out of something that isn't Jackson's idea. AND, the original creator, Tolkien won't see a penny of that. His family might, but he won't, he's dead and he can't complain. I bet they'll just make more fucking movies out of his other books as well. Can you tell I'm mad?
Sigh. I really wish Del Toro had been able to direct this movie.
