      I'll bite, if only to help provide a little balance to the inevitable "Peter Jackson is the worst thing to ever happen to Tolkien" responses.
       
      I'm looking forward to the films with a mixture of excitement and dread.  Well, not so much dread, as the sure knowledge that there will be aspects of the films that I will absolutely hate.  But I also am equally sure that there will be parts that I will love, and that is better than what I expected before the LotR films came out.
       
      My preference would have been for a single film that was limited to adapting the book "The Hobbit" to film.  But I'm intrigued to see how they expand the story using the limited clues that Tolkien provided in the LotR appendices.  From some of what I have seen, they seem to have at the least pushed the limits of at the least being strongly influenced by material in works that they do not (at least so far as we know publicly) have the rights to (primarily "The Quest of Erebor"), and I'm quite interested to see how that plays out (even while knowing with eyes wide open based on the LotR films that the parts that are not closely based on what Tolkien wrote are likely to be by far the worst parts). 
       
      I'm looking forward to films that have a fair bit more humor than the LotR films, but at the same time, there is Tolkien humor, that I love (e.g., the "good morning" sequence at the beginning of the book), and there is Peter Jackson humor (e.g, fart jokes and the like) that I most definitely do not like.  I suspect that there will be a fair amount of the latter that will make me wince.  But having heard snippets from the soundtrack, I know that the dwarves sing "Chip the Glasses" very well, and it makes me smile every time I think "That's what Bilbo Baggins' hates!"  In general, the soundtrack sounds very good, with much of the qualities from the LotR soundtrack that I liked very much, and less of the excessive bombast that I wasn't thrilled with.  However, I'm only heard one minute snippets from each track, so that isn't enough to judge by.
       
      As for having Sir Ian Holm come back, he simply is too old for the part now.  But Martin Freeman looks to be very, very good, capturing that quality of a comfortable bourgeois English gentleman suddenly thrown out of his comfort zone and finding hidden reserves.  And Richard Armitage, despite being younger than my imagination of Thorin (and having far too short of beard), looks to be able to capture that commanding, conflicted quality that makes that character so compelling.  Of course, Ian McKellen is one of the greatest actors of our time, and Cate Blanchett comes as close to capturing Galadriel as anyone could.
       
      In short, I am once again expecting to be annoyed and angry at the "drawing of smiley faces on a masterpiece" as I was with the LotR films.  But I'm also expecting the masterpiece to be there to have the smiley faces drawn upon.
       
      On a final note, I am interested to see how the films look in the new 48 fps format that has proven so controversial.  Of course only about 10% of the theaters will be showing in the higher frame rate, but I definitely intend to watch it that way first (probably not on the opening day) and then watch it the more traditional format to compare it with.

      Looking forward to seeing it? Yes, very much so. 
      I too wd have preferred Ian Holm, but from the clips it looks like Freeman will do a good job. We'll see how it all comes out, very soon now.
      As for the others reprising their chares, of course: it'll be good to see McKellan and Serkis again, along with 'Galadriel' and Lee. Here's hoping they keep Bloom to a cameo . . .

      Hi all. I thought I would get a discussion going. I would like to know what people's thoughts are on the upcoming Hobbit movie?? are you looking forward to seeing it? do you think it will be as good as lotr? what do you think of the new actors playing the roles of the dwarves and the new actor playing the role of Bilbo? and what are your thoughts on some of the older actors reprising there roles that they had in the lotr films? visually do you think it will be the same? or different then the lotr movies? and this same question go's for the story do you think it will stick true to the book?For me it does look good and the only issue that I have is the fact that they didn't stick with Ian Holm playing the role of young Bilbo since as I have pointed out before in the seen where he finds the ring we hear his voice say what's this? now will they just re right that hole seen for the hobbit? since the idea of 2 diffrent people doing this seen to me  just doesn't work. having 2 people playing the same character in my view. well discuss. from Mich.
