As a giant fan of the works of J.R.R. Tolkein, I absolutely devoured the Lord of the Rings trilogy by Peter Jackson, especially the extended editions. Still, I had my reservations about another trilogy of movies based on The Hobbit, a single novel. While each of the new films had their share of cool moments, I do feel that the story would have been better served if it had been told in perhaps two movies instead of three. By the time I watched the third one, it did begin to feel a little repetitious. Still, it's great that one of the masterpieces of fantasy was brought to life with such care.
