Having seen Harry Potter 7.1 Can't Post

I'm a bit concerned about The Hobbit being split into two films.

Don't get me wrong, HP7.1 was well-made all things considered (strongly acted, great visuals, good writing, beautiful music)... but it felt like there was no resolution to anything, and it just kinda... ends. It came across as a blatant prelude to the final film, and I ultimately left the theater feeling like it just didn't hold up on its own. It was like a glorified, two-hour-long teaser trailer.

So now I can't help but be more concerned for The Hobbit Part 1. I want a film that can be enjoyed on its own (even if it is just one piece of a two-parter), just like how I can watch and enjoy FoTR without having to watch TTT and RoTK. If the films can only be enjoyed together, I might as well just wait for The Hobbit Part 1 to come out on DVD and watch it right before the second film.
