This is losing sight of the forest for the trees IMO

This is focusing on one element in Bilbo's story. And this is Bilbo's story...at least according to Tolkien. Now I realize these films are according to PJ, and I'm fine with the films. but the title of the last film should reflect the entire journey. I think There and Back Again is a perfect title for the last film, bringing a sense of completeness. The new title sounds like just another big special effects hoopla. It would be like calling the Two Towers The Battle of Helm's Deep or the Return of the King The Battle of the Pelennor Fields. I realize this is probably a marketing scheme, but I for one am extremely disappointed. Frown
