    Hope so. I was rather expecting it to be long and probably dull, although I can't see how it can be as dull as #2.

    Sometimes I think it's easy to get in to comic book guy mode if you are too involved or invested in something, which I'll be honest comes across a lot in many posts in this thread.
    A lot of the comments appear to be of the "it was too long and boring" variety, which applies whether you've read the book or not. And in any case, why is it up to you to decide whether someone is "too involved or invested" in something? People are fans of the book, and want the films to reflect what they liked about it. What's wrong with that?

    I think the main problem a lot of people have with Peter Jacksons: The Hobbit is that he's taken the original, and much beloved story, and adding a lot of unessicsary extras to it, some of which wasn't in any of the Middle Earth set books at all.

    At least with his LOTR trilogy the films were mostly faithful to the source material give or take.

    It's a really short book, you can read the whole thing in a weekend no problem. It could have been done in one film but I'd have been happy with two. Three is stretching it too much.

    The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition Blu-ray

    An extra 25 minutes which takes it to 186 minutes.

    Why? Was to it too boring for the theatrical cut?

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.
