I only saw the first Hobbit movie. I don't remember much of the book, but I was fairly disgusted with the movie. The white goblin chasing them was one of the most frustrating bits because I'm fairly certain he wasn't alive during the adventure. Should I watch the other?

I´m a big, big, big Tolkien-Fan. I think I´ve read each of his books at the very least 3 dozens of times.
I would normally be one of the people who would hate the movies, but I actually love them.

My tip to you: Don´t watch them with the mindset of watching a movie to the book. Watch them as a standalone movie.
When I tried watching the Hobbit with the wrong mindset I was frustrated, too, but if you watch it like I said, you might love it as I did.

Peter Jackson had to sell the movie. He had to make it appealing to people who might never even have laid a finger on a book by Tolkien and only know Hollywood-Blockbuster-Cinema. Because that´s what sells.

That´s why there where changes, new characters, characters that weren´t there in the books, changes in the behaviour of characters, etc, etc, etc - to sell it.

If you overlook that, tho, the movies are incredible amusing and well-down as well as perfectly entertaining. There are tons of small scenes that will make you love laugh or feel and there´s fun and action for everyone. Not to mention that, deep down, the story is still by Tolkien. It can´t be absolutely bad.

I recently finished re-reading the hobbit, just because I wanted to read the story in JRR Tolikein's words again while waiting for the third movie. While yes Peter Jackson did add a few things to the story such as: Azog the white orc, who was supposed to have died in the Dwarf-Goblin wars, The reappearance of Legolas (never mentioned in the book), etc. I have to say that if the original book story was adapted straight to film, it would have made for a much less entertaining movie. Even still, the scenes of Gandalf dealing with the Necromancer in Dol Guldur was actually mentioned in the book but few details were given. Overall, the key scenes of the hobbit were present with most of the dialogue non-bastardized, so I'd say 9.5/10 for the movies.

tl;dr- The Hobbit movies were a better book to movie adaptation than the LOTR Trilogy.

The amount of people complaining about the transition from book to movie in these comments...Jesus.

I like the fact the movie doesn't follow the book, it means book readers like myself can enjoy it without knowing exactly what will happen next.

Hi guys TolkienExplain here, i see alot of people with different opinions on the current Hobbit movies. And how good of an adaption of the book they were.
For one part Tolkien is probably spinning in his grave.
It's not a good adaption of the book at all, i could go into detail but galgawine will probably make a comp for that someday.
How ever as a movie, it's beautiful in terms of visuals and music, but the acting can be very over the top at times and the balance between drama and stupid fart humor, is just very off putting. And the movies are way too long. Also PJ needs to stop with the "death scenes" we all know gandalf survives and Bilbo cause we saw them in LOTR and he would never kill off Thorin so early.

TLDR: Zombie Tolkien wants to strangle Peter Jackson
The movie was okay.

Someone goes "I don't like it because it's not like the book" -> Gets drowned in red thumbs.

I liked the movies...the jazz they put in just made it more entertaining.

But sweet mother of freak did the whole elf-dwarf romance cheese me off. GIMLI should be the only dwarf to love an elf, that's what makes him unique.

I kind of wish there was an app for my phone that's sort of like siri except it stays on and Martin Freeman's voice just supplies sarcastic remarks about things it hears throughout the day.

Jesus Christ people. They have stayed very faithful the the overall story arch in these movies while adding more to the movies to make them seem more full. It makes sense that Legolas would be there, since he is the son of Thranduil and J.R.R. hadn't created the character yet when he wrote the book. Azog, while dead by this point in the books, gives the movie a real villain other than Smaug, who didn't exactly last very long in the book something that the novel lacked. If they had just done one movie and hadn't added anything new, there would be people complaining about how everything was rushed and that none of the characters had any development. One of the things I love about the movies is how they actually gave the dwarves personalities and distinguishing characteristics.
