I saw this on Poly, and the thread descended into a massive nerd fight about it being a 2 film deal and then the changes Jackson made to LotR, by half way I wanted to kill myself. Then I forgot to post it.

unlikely to be duplicated here

I wonder what angle they'll take
I remember the hobbit being a lot more kid oriented, overall and certainly in the first part... I wonder if they'll keep this tone, or if they'll make it darker from the start

I haven't read it in the last 20 years, I'm waiting for my kid to grow up to read it to him as bedtime stories

I hope they don't. I read it a long time ago, actually after LotR, and I didn't like much the "lighter" tone.

Nerds at Poly? Unbelievable! Was the second part of the thread written in elvish?

How could I have warned you any more strongly?

I hope they make a film in keeping with the feel of the LotR movies which I think were at a level that both kids and adults could enjoy.

The Hobbit is a lot tighter as a story than LotR, there's less stuff that wouldn't make a good film (eg. thank god they dropped Tom Bombadil from the film), but he's bound to change stuff.
