I agree

Though I think it was both bad execution, and not enough time to accommodate both PJ's love of extended action sequences, and Tolkien's rich tale. I also think that a large part of the bad execution was in the script, and that the script was severely constrained by the simple fact that they had only three films to tell the story. So length may have impacted execution.

My perspective is somewhat realistic. I understand that PJ has certain indulgences, and understand that I will have to accept that. In this context, I think a longer film keeps the door open for him to indulge (the stuff I generlly dislike) as well as tell a compelling story.

In other words, instead of choosing extended action over the nuances in the books, he will simply included both.

That is the root of my optimism.
