Also, parts from the appendix to return of the king (?) were included in the hobbit trilogy.
The hobbit contains a ton less information than the Lord of the Rings. Now there's a lot more crud in the Lord of the Rings (screw the Songs) but in terms of scope, the Hobbit is like the original 13 colonies, and the LOTR is like the whole US. The hobbit involves 4 primary locations, Shire, Misty Mountains, Mirkwood, and the Lonely Mountain. The Hobbit paces itself better because the Hobbit is a children's book while LOTR is an adult's book.

Hobbit is relatively simple, with only about 20 or so important characters while Lord of the Rings have countless important characters. The movie glossed over some unimportant parts and some incredibly important parts as well, some for understandable purposes (like having the Army of the Undead end the Battle for Pelanor fields to make it faster) other things that I hate are the entire absence of the importance of things that are super important in the book like the Gifts of Galadriel, also makes the hobbits seem like children for most of the movies (For example, Aragorn built the fire on Weathertop and Boromir threw the stones into the lake outisde of Moria), and many more things. There's a ton of awesome stuff in the movies that's left out of the books that LOTR nerds love. I would recommend reading the books. They may take some time to get into and honestly you could probably skip the Songs, but just read it and I think you'll love it.

Well said!

I didn't mind that they left out Tom Bombadil either. I Always skip the countless songs.

Default Les Miserables!

OK, so I didn't give a hoot that The Hobbit was bastardized for the movie.

But tonight I'm off to see Les Miserables, and the director better not have messed with this one. I say it's the greatest story ever told and sacrosanct.

So, maybe I'm a hypocrite. My god I'm excited.

I just watched the trailer. She is gorgeous. And it seems she sings very well too.

So I've heard, I've yet to see the film yet though. I heard Crowe's singing is a little robotic, but other than that I've heard nothing but good things about the movie in general. Enjoy

I took it as a condensed recreation of the best scenes from the first 3... and the rest was kind of pushing it to be almost walt disney'ish.

I haven't read any of the books (too long for my taste) but have seen all the movies. I very much like the LoTR's. I care about the characters and the outcome of the story. In The Hobbit, however, if Bilbo were to vacate the story at any point I would be indifferent. I just wasn't drawn in at all- and to me, that's what makes a movie exciting. Kyle

Meh.

200 pages into The Hobbit and you're at the final scene.

200 pages into The Fellowship of the Ring, and you haven't even left The Shire yet.

I read the hobbit in less than 8 hours as a child. What can they possibly fill three movies with? :\
