To be honest i was a little disappointed by The Hobbit movie. As I watched it things just kept getting further and further from the adventure in the book. I guess the original was just too bland for Hollywood, but it's one of my childhood favorites read to me by my grandmother, and to see all that extra weird story crow-barred in like that really unsettled me.

Peter Jackson was trying to mix the seriousness of LoTR with the light-hearted and casual feeling you get from The Hobbit. It didn't go very well.

the barrel part is in the next film? and yeah i dont remember reading about legolas or the white orc in the book, but it was a while ago. he needed more action to entrance viewers, you know how stupid most people are. they'd get bored easily.

I don't think it needed more action, but I do think the problem is similar to that. In the book there are a lot of chapters that take course over months at a time, and it's a lot easier to write "for weeks and weeks they walked threw the dark forests until they came to the river" than it is to show that time passage on screen. They had the same ordeal in LotR. The books span multiple years, while the movies just seem like a few weeks, *maybe* a month.
