IMO opinion Peter Jackson has no restraint

I really don;t think he can help himself. Which is sad because I find when he stuck to the material Tolkien wrote for him the scenes were SO much better for me. Jackson has proven that he can't leave well enough alone this time around. Every bit of great dialogue Tolkien gave us in the book has been altered in some way or another. whether it being totally changed, words left out, or words added. Prime examples are instead of the opening dialogue ending where is should have with the simple word comfort, Jackson had to put "comfortS of home" Why?, what did that add other than an unnecessary change in dialogue? Then we have the Time answer in the riddle game. Bilbo inadvertently tells Gollum he needs more time, instead we get Gollum telling Bilbo "time's up" to which Bilbo pieces it together. Another needless change in dialogue that to me makes no sense, and the list goes on and on since there is no unaltered Tolkien dialogue in the film. Jackson obviously can't help himself. He feels the need to change things just for the sake of changing them. I'm sure Smaug's encounter with Bilbo in DOS will be no different, along with the added characters not fitting into anything Tolkien would have wrote... I can see making slight adaptions but outright changes esp in good dialogue or good scenes from the book are just completely unnecessary
