3 Hobbits...No thank you Can't Post

     I really hope the rumor is just that...a rumor. Some reason behind my opinion: It feels to me that they would do this because of one reason...money. Being a business person, I can understand this, but I just think that another trilogy is too long of a reach for the filmmakers to try and do. I see the filmmakers adding CGI instead of models and camera tricks to try and quicken the film making process. I can imagine these films as more action sequences than the needed dialogue and scenes from the book that fans crave.
The care and detail will be compared to LOTR and inevitably not reach equal heights. Three films would seem forced and put-on.
There is something to the saying "too much of a good thing." When I found out the The Hobbit was being produced I, like us all, was very pleased. I have total trust in GDT and will most likely love his interpretation of one of my favorite books (Third only to James and the Giant Peach and LOTR). May the best decision be made...

The grey rain curtain of this world rolls
back and all turns to silver glass . . .
and then you see it . . .
