The way Marvel, Disney and Star Wars (now all commercialised by the same entity ) are going with making a potentially infinite number of films in those franchises I would be surprised if they don't try to make the Silmarillion into a film trilogy. I think the Tolkien estate still have these rights? They are protective of Tolkien's work but also eager for some dollar, so I would be surprised if it didn't happen at some point.

Also the run time is at least 20 mins too long. The chase out of goblin-town is like a video game and Thorin's confrontation and Bilbo's intervention against Azog at the end feels so contrived. There should have been more advancing of the plot and less hacking and slashing imo. These two scenes really detracted from the end of the movie to me. I think once I get used to them on repeat viewings I'll be able to enjoy the whole a lot more.

I'm still a bit sceptical about how they're managing to stretch it out for two more films without doing even more of the above.
Excellent post. I even felt like the characterisation got a bit lost, especially between the main protagonists. Ian Mckellen was superb as expected, but Radagast's character was so cartoonish. I felt it undermined the character development that unfolded so brilliant in the LOTR trilogy. Maybe it will happen in the next two films, but there seemed to be a lot of tedious 'slash and giggle' moments.

Overall though, I really did enjoy it, if only for the swell of nostalgia. And Galadriel>>>>>>>>>>>

Re: Just watched The Hobbit and while it has some flaws the movie is still epic!

It's been a long time since I've read the book but from what I've read on the trilogy, the next film is to focus solely on Gandalf apparently. It's about what he does when he's absent from the book. I don't know if Tolkien's wrote much about what happened there even in appendixes so I really don't know how they can even make a film about that, let alone a 2.5 hour one (which it most definitely will be).

I'll still go see the film but I'm still feeling that Jackson will severely dent his reputation by the end of this.

I'm 99% sure she didn't appear, she is not credited in IMDB for example, she will appear on the next 2 movies

She wasn't in An Unexpected Journey, but will most definitely be in the next two.

The movie has an epic scope but it's far from epic. Too many cringeworthy moments.

I think it's better for me to wait until it comes out on video.

I already thought the LOFR movies were too long. Sounds like this one follows in the same path...

With or without her, I'll still watch the movie BTW Evangeline was in the premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

No, I was talking about Kate from Lost. After she escaped the island the second time, I guess she got into acting.
