No offence at all, we have different points of view. [In reply to] Can't Post

and I have to say that, compared to LOTR, "The Hobbit" is... not worth the time spent reading it. Sorry if I'm so disrespectful with it, but I deeply didn't like it AT ALL.
C'mon... holy book... I hope the tone is that of LOTR, book and movie, especially movie, because this is where the comparisons will be made. I can understand TH is the first book Tolkien wrote, and that he gave it this childish tone, I'm fine with it. I guess I would have appreciated it if had read it when I was a child, but I read it after LOTR, and I'd rather not have the same experience with the movie.
Another big problem I have with The Hobbit is that it seems to be a "short" version of LOTR. I'm sure this connection has already been done thousands of time. It's basically the same story... the same structure... and coupled with this childish tone... I have to say that, if they want to be faithful to the book, to the Holiness of the book... and not make some serious changes (changes much deeper than those made by PJ and Co.) to the story and the tone... I'm worried.
I hope GDT will make a movie that will please the movie goers, not the book readers.
