I was a basher of the movie

But honestly, I am reading the book right now and there is a lot of bits of info about Middle Earth that are only mentioned very briefly, for example in Out of the frying pan , a cousin of Bilbo that used to fright him with imitations of wolves cries is mentioned. Or Gollumīs past with his grandmma. The book itself is shorter than if Tolkien would have wasted time in explaining some of those aspects as he did in LOTR.(You can tell there were a lot more events in LOTR story, but both journeys endured more or less the same, and things werenīt quiet inMiddle Earth at that time (Dol Guldur))

Besides if you are pretending to include appendix material the book grows, so at least it would have been 200 pages more or so. I have found many details that I didnīt remember from the book, like Rivendellīs moss when they are trying to find out the way into the valley.And some how that is in the movie. Gandalf being tested by the small clues in the way to follow.
And though the Goblin sequence is not as I imagined it, and I like more the versión I still imagining when I read it, the scene of the fifteen birds in five fir trees, has a lot more tension in the movie, and I think I prefer it.
So of course it could have been an awesome single movie, īcause when PJ sticks to the book he nails it. And in AUJ there where several moments when this happens. But at last I understand the way they are doing this and I like it. Of course money its important. But at least it allows Peter to show every single turn of the road. And regarding the design, well I like that they still taking risks. I have the feeling of uncomfortableness that Bilbo suffered several times in his journey when all this outlandish and dangerous folk appeared, and for me that is being sticked to the story.IMHO

The flagon with the dragon has the brew that is true!
