I agree with you Myrthe & L....

My only gripe doesn't SEEM difficult to achieve/correct/implement:

1. You need something for a character to say in the film

2. The dialogue for that character is already written in the book - just use what Tolkein wrote!

3. Instead, someone writes new lines for that character

Doesn't make sense...

dialogue was written for a mass audience. I had no problem with that as what is written wouldnt have translated that well too film. the books action sequences also lack detail such as the fight with th cave troll. Jackson did a brilliant job with that part of book. In my opinion hes doen th best job of creating a fantasy/scifi world from a book to film. This is from a director whos biggest film was the frighteners. I would have liked to have seen more of the books characters such as Tom Bombadil. Hopeully the leaving out the songs and include all the characters from the hobbit.

I'm curious whether the treatment of [u]The Hobbit{/u] will be done separately from the "bridging events", or concurrently.

Jackson placed most of the scenes in proper chronological order, especially those scenes that were described and recounted at the Council of Elrond. It makes the movie much easier to follow than some portions of the books might be.

So will we cut from the Dwarves trudging through Mirkwood to the Armies of the West attacking the Necromancer? Or will those events be in two different movies?

I am actually amazed with how good a job Jackson and everyone did. It was vastly better than anything I had dared to hope for. Maybe it was because I had realistic ideas of what they would try to do. Man, they went beyond what any major studio had ever risked before and really went for it. I think that all the artisans, craftsmen, artists, and players all approached this production with an enthusiasm and caring that really reflects a level of love and appreciation for the "professors" work that will probably never be matched again with any production of this scale.
Yes, it has a little too much "sword action" at times for my taste...and a bit too much "hamming" it up, especially with Gimli..but that's fine. There were moments that made up for the lighter stuff...I prefered the more dreamy, grand, or historic feeling sequences...basically, the images of middle earth were often right on...

Overall, I was just relieved that he didn't totally screw it up big time! many of Jackson's descisions were right on, like hiring Alan Lee, hiring Howard Shore, using regular sized actors for the hobbits, not casting Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, or any truly main stream actors to play the major roles, making 3 LONG movies, etc, etc... just think of how terrible the whole thing could have been handled...(Golden Compass)

Hat's off to Jackson!

Now I can be nervous again till 2010....
