the hobbit, although beautiful, was disappointing the way they added plot lines that distract watchers from the real story, and unnecessarily changed little things; the trolls, and "but, carefully with the plates" was never said in the move, making the cute and well choreographed number pretty pointless. I came to see Tolkien's "the hobbit" as a movie, not anything at all different. And WTF was Galadriel doing in Rivendell? Didn't thew make a point in the books saying that she never leaves Lothlorien?

Tolkien changed things later, they took his personal notes into account :)

I was aware that that he had different versions (and the some of my complaints are pretty nit-picky),but i thought the changes were more subtle hings, like not mentioning the ring.

Considering I fell asleep during like 2 of the LOTR movies, I thought it was fantastic I stayed awake. That said, this was brilliant. I haven't read the book, so I have nothing to compare it to. I do think it's funny that it's going to be three movies. I loved the trolls, they were hilarious.

I loved it, the pacing was fantastic. :) thought the "white goblin" was a bit odd to put in, and the didn't put the hook of Thror dying in the necromancer's cells... but nonetheless, an enjoyable film. :)

ummmm... i was informed the hobbit published in 1937 is just one novel. but peter jackson is making it into 3 movies...just the way they did it with breaking dawn nd the last of the potter books... i just felt with so much wait n all the movie kinda stretched over the time.

Yes, however Tolkien's world is huge, and he added much more after writing The Hobbit. Jackson is using material from The Hobbit, as well as Tolkien's additional notes, the story from the Necromancer books as well as the Silmarillion. All of it happens at the same time, but were written down into different books by Tolkien. So instead of making 2 movies for The Hobbit, they are making 3 in order to put it all together :)

I loved the movie! It really kept pretty true to the book which made me happy. I really think a lot of the stuff they added was 1) to explain a lot of things to people who didn't/don't read the books and 2) it happened that way anyhow! Really, they talk about it in the whole Trilogy, here in the Hobbit and Tolkien writes and talks about it in his other works as well. Kinda sad that people get upset when they don't realize that and then hate the movie because of it.

Sadly, I haven't read The Hobbit in many years, but I know from what people tell me it was true to the book, with added material, which has been said in these comments as well.

I don't mind that it is put into three movies. I appreciated it before I saw the first. In my opinion the book has about the same size of story as the Lord of the Rings books. But it is much more condensed in the Hobbit. Why I thought it would be good to give the original story of "The Hobbit" room. But they didn't, they cut away pieces, added other pieces not fitting with the original novel and added much much eye candy action. And many scenes are really hyper exaggerated.
I think it's more a movie taking some ideas from "The Hobbit" than a movie based on the novel "The Hobbit". I especially didn't like the parts added or altered solely for more action or jokes. I hoped it would be as epic as the Lord of the Rings movies. But it failed. It was more like an action-comedy mix, nothing epic. :(

They added parts that Tolkien himself thought should be added, but which he noted down later. Parts from the Silmarillion, his personal notes, and the necromancer books. It all takes place at the same time, so they are now making it all into one story. That's why it is the way it is.

It's not that there are parts which aren't written in the original novel. It's more how they added many scenes just for sheap loughs or more action. :(
I think it could be a made all into one story without all those jokes and additional action.

None of what they do is cheap, and none of what they added isn't in the books.

Not going to say it wasn't a well-done movie. More than that, I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. But really? They're gonna make THREE movies out of it? That's pushing it a bit, even for Hollywood.

It's a prequel to the three books and movies, Lord of the Rings. There are lot of LOTR fans around, including me. Every fan of LOTR would like to see what have they created for the one book, Hobbit. There are going to be three movies, and I think they're going to be quite popular. I would also like to know how did they manage to create to movie, for example.

They did it exactly how it had to be done, actually. The Hobbit was the earliest work and it doesn't work out, mythologically. Jackson has access to all of Tolkien's notes about which things don't fit well and have to be changed or what needs to be added. Also, many things happen at the same time, which are not written in The Hobbit. Parts from Silmarillion, the Necromancer books, it's all there and part of the same story, happening all at. They simply took it all and made into one big whole. This is why it's 3 movies. And I for one am happy they are doing it this way.

Absolutely loved it, my friends didn't hype for nothing ever since the first trailer came out something like a year ago : D Saw the Finland's premiere a week ago, definitely worth being tired at school the next day~ Though for some reason I had this sudden urge to draw dwarves…
I'm kinda sorry that almost all critics here complained that it was too long and boring, but I myself loved the length in it, it had a nice, relaxed pace compared to most movies nowadays, which are way too cramped to the point of being confusing. In The Hobbit, it was much easier to follow the plot, and there was still time to enjoy the amazing scenery and props they had made, something that's incredibly rare in modern movies. The HFR was a bit hard on the eyes at first, way too smooth and made things look like they were 3D-graphic animation, but if the technology sticks I think we'll get used to it.

All in all, the humor, Martin Freeman and dwarves. Need I say more?<3 Also really looking forward to hearing Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug~
