Hey I didn't even watch part 2 I was that disappointed with the 1st part...

So worth it? I'll probably get round to watching them eventually.

I saw them all- thought 3 was a lot tighter than the others (as it should be, since it was like 2 or 3 chapters of the book!) and like the others not as good as LoTR. Just get over thinking it is going to be like the book and accept that it is Peter Jackson Fan Fiction Set In The Time Of The Hobbit, and it is reasonably entertaining.

I'm sure I'll get the extended editions too, and I really hope some other director gets to try again someday, and without the studios forcing it to be so obnoxiously long and bloated.

I give it twenty years, max, before we're mining the 2010 decade for nostalgia value.

Someday I will create NPPTheHobbit by taking all three movies and editing them down to a 2 part, 5-6 hour movie. There is a great movie in there somewhere, but the whole thing was about 2-3 hours too long.

You aren't the only one with that idea.

in the hobbit series i enjoyed the first part most, especially some of the calmer moments in it. by part iii i was already resigned to watching a fantasy-action movie loosely based on the hobbit, what spoils it for me, is not length, difference in tone to the book etc., but that even the action is just so mindboggingly stupid.

everyone is now on the level of legolas in lotr films and legolas is superman. bilbo taking out rather sizeable enemies reliably with stonethrows, but despite this apparent danger of ranged attacks (at least bows are now increasingly used at range!) heroes still don't wear helmets. bows are still used for silly action movie standoffs at full draw. thorin sends away half of his small group when attacked by a 100 orcs (in part i thorin was "do you think a night raid by orcs is a joke", he must have had serious level ups in between)... in short all this is about as epic as infinite hitpoints + infinite damage playthrough would be in angband.
