There's a wonderfully evocative moment in Durin's Folk

He thought of weapons and armies and alliances, as his great hammer rang in his forge; but the armies were dispersed and the alliances broken and the axes of his people were few; and a great anger without hope burned him as he smote the red iron on the anvil.

This moment is adapted into the prologue of An Unexpected Journey. Once I saw it, I knew exactly what kind of movie (or rather, three movies) I was going to see.

they had to be given that TH movies follow the LotR trilogy. Itís one of several problems created by that filming order.

It isn't just the filming order. Even if the filmmakers started with The Hobbit, the prospect of making The Lord of the Rings and making a unified series out of the two pieces was there from the beginning.\

If you had a filmmaker who was going to do just The Hobbit (a-la Rankin/Bass), or rather if The Hobbit was being adapted before The Lord of the Rings books ever came out - that could have made for an adaptation that was more "faithful" to the tone of The Hobbit book.
