Have you seen The Hobbit (or do you plan to see it while it's still in theaters)?

But people died for the birth of the republic of Texas. Does that mean you have to move?

Peter Jackson is a horrible director!

(cont.) after the amazing job he did with the LotR trilogy.

Unfortunately, I did see it. It was such a mockery of the book that Tolkien must be rolling over in his grave. Poor Radagast--his character was butchered for the sake of lengthening the movie. It was okay as far as book-to-movie adaptations go, but I expected better of Peter Jackson (cont.)

What's with Utah and The Hobbit? Well, it at least shows how awesome Utah is.

I want to see it very very badly, but won't due to the severe animal abuse and deaths that occurred during filming.

It was excellent, very faithful to Tolkien's works.

Loved it. Can't wait to see the next. And the next. Is it long? Yes. Does it add details not in "The Hobbit"(and yet still within the realm of Tolkien)? Yes. But I'm not going to complain because I went into it knowing Peter Jackson's style so none of that was a surprise. See it. Be swept away.

I will not see this movie or support it because they let the animals in this film die from poor conditions after the film was finished

I say if you're not a fan of the hobbit and Tolkien and are expecting an action packed movie then go see something else.
All the smartassy critics giving it bad reviews can suck it and go watch another weird French film.

Just watched it on IMAX 3D tonight. As a fan of LOTR and Tolkien in general I was impressed and happy with the movie, it follows the book well and the photography left me with my mouth open a few times. Not quite sure how it'll be 3 movies but I'm glad they're including everything in the story.

Google "the hobbit and animal abuse" Christine. You're way off base. Over two dozen animals died from the atrocious housing conditions during production.

Twice! Friday morning and night. I'm the leader of the Fellowship of the Ring (LoTR appreciation society) at my school, so I have some accountability. Holy crap I'm a geek

Peter Jackson seems to believe that longer is better because it is more dramatic. All of the LOTR movies could have been 30 minutes shorter. He didn't need to drag out every scene.

When it comes to Netflix I'll see it.

Game of Thrones is far superior to LOTR. Peter Jackson seems to think dragging out a scene makes it more dramatic. It doesn't. I could watch the first season of Games of Thrones over and over. You could not pay me to watch the LOTR trilogy again.

It's gotten some poor reviews and I have to say, the commercials did not look great. But I will likely go and see for myself how it is..., I really enjoyed The Lord of the Rings

From what I've heard (I haven't seen the movie) the trilogy will make use of Tolkein's notes about what else is going on in Middle Earth that has to do with the general story of the ring.

At least Bilbo was not portrayed as a crying, whiny, wuss.
Too long, too much filler not in the book.
Good movie. Not great.
2 movies would be more than enough.
