One must look at how this could benefit us ringers...

The Hobbit trilogy yes I could go on for hours about the mistakes/changes, and yet I still love them. I mean who didn't tear up with shear bittersweet joy when AUJ opened with the Ian Holm sequence. Knowing that although it was not going to be perfect we had waited so long!
I digress, so the title is more catchy for casual movie goers and doesn't sing to us the way TABA does or inspire those bittersweet tears again, and yes it lacks heart, but we are getting even more ME more of the world and stories we love ( even if we are forced to ignore the faults, that is okay because the changes can never take my ME from me).
I would be lying if I didn't say that the prospect of what they will do with the third installment hasn't caused stress. But if this title brings in more movie goers, more money etc then we have a greater chance of the studio saying "hey Peter, we did so well with both trilogies we really think you should give the Silm a go!" And though we will have opinions on that as well, we will have more ME! More Tolkien! I suppose that is just how I look at it and though it may sound like selling out on the title; the movie will always be The Hobbit TABA to me. Besides it is the least of our problems when it comes to AUG and DOS but that is another post...or many.

Just a humble opinion from a 15 year lurker who finally got brave enough to
