They're turning The Hobbit into TWO movies? Is that really necessary? It's ONE book, like each of the three LoTR sources.

Geeze. With all the extended or extra scenes that they'll undoubtedly include in the DVD of The Hobbit, are 2 movies really necessary?

Oh, wait, I said that already.

Are 2 movies really necessary?

They were talking about making one a part of the Silmarillion actually

You're braver than I if you read the whole thing. I couldn't get past the first chapter.

Am I the only one who thinks that three movies of walking, interspersed with amazing effects is enough?


No, FFPF, you're not alone. The first in the series was OK, the second started to drag, and the third bored me to tears.

"Amazing" special effects are a dime a dozen these days, and just do not "make" a movie for me.

The last movie I really enjoyed was "Perfume," but then I'm weird. Laughing

Movies very, very rarely are better, however, it still exceeded my expectations given all the crap they put on DVD's these days. Rolling Eyes

With the notable exception of the DVDs from Raging Stallion studios -- right, Amigo?

I mean, those come with REAL EXTRAS, don't they?

Very Happy
