Re: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Grading & Discussion (Spoilers
That's fandom for you. The anticipated movie can disappoint but we'll all be back to see it.
If Jackson could have shown all 13 dwarves wiping their ass one at a time after eating at Bilbo's, he would have in a heartbeat.
Yeah if you are going to make three movies that were going to be one, they absolutely need to be no longer than 2 hours, bloated indeed.
It is possible he may trim the next two when he see's the reaction, they will make just as much money even if they are 2 hours and maybe more people will see them.
You are fully capable of deciding your own destiny, the question is, which path will you choose? (Sarek)
