This movie is going to be epic!  I've read the book 3 times, and it's an outstanding story, and you just know PJ and crew (especially Fran and Phillipa) are going to knock it out of the park with what they add to it.  I've heard it takes a few minutes to get used to the new tech (it's been described as being like the first time you saw an HD signal), but I'm confident it will be amazing, like Avatar was.  Next week can't come fast enough!!!

I deny the list of fears. In Peter Jackson and Crew I trust. If the Hobbit movies are just as good as the LOTR movies it is fine with me. No need to top what was, IMHO, perfect. There is no way this can be messed up.

As for the story I can say I like the Hobbit more than the LOTR books. To me it is classic Tolkien. From the flight across the Misty Mountains, Bilbo's riddle game with  Gollum, through Mirkwood against the spiders, dealing with the elves, and fighting against the three armies at the end after Smaug gets taken down this story is awesome enough to satisfy this geek many times over. That is just what is in the traditional book.

And has been pointed out by others that is not even counting the extra stuff they added in of the Wizards Council and the Elves against the Necromancer! That addition is very cool. But it was one that was written by Tolkien. He wrote so much more than just the LOTR stories and the Hobbit. The story lines they added to the Hobbit movies are totally legit.  Forget fears, this movie is going to kick all mighty ass.

BTW, I am seeing it in 3D at 48 fps and I am excited to see what this is all about.  I will report what I see.

Thinking about checking out the LOTR extended editions marathon playing at the theater Saturday. I'd like to see the extended editions on the big screen at least once.

The problem is that it's a 13 hour commitment and it seems no one else wants to do it. Boy, decisions decisions

 A theater that I associated with did it a few years ago! Awesome time!

I can't make myself watch more than one hour of LOTR at a time, I couldn't imagine 13.

Prompted by Wiseguy's fictional sentence, here is a list of movie trilogies I honestly liked better than LOTR (in no particular order):

Star Wars Prequel Trilogy
Star Wars Original Trilogy
Nolan Batman
Beverly Hills Cop
Jason Bourne
Cannonball Run
The Librarian
Men In Black
Ocean's 11, 12 & 13
Toy Story
