I wonder where they will cut off each movie now. At what point do they meet Smaug? At what point will he die?
Good questions ... and that's what I'm most interested in. Will each film feel
like a film? Or merely a link in a chain? I thought FOTR worked brilliantly as a solid film (with a distinct beginning, middle and end). I hope the Hobbit
films are similar.

I'll go on record and say that I'd rather be spoiled. If I had known that TTT would not
include Shelob, I'd have been more satisfied with its ending the first time I saw it (and not felt like it was incomplete). Likewise, I'd rather not expect either of the first two Hobbit
films to cover certain ground that is left for the next film.
