When all the Hobbit EE's are done and dusted, Can't Post

Which do you suspect you will like the most and which the least? Also, why?

I am predicting my rankings as

Favourite: TABA: I expect it will be the most grounded and serious with plenty of death. It will have many great actions scenes such as Laketown vs Smaug and BOFA. Also, it will have Bilbo increased attachment to the Ring and Thorin's fall to deal with. All this IMO will make a wonderful film that I am sure will be even better with it's EE.

Middle favourite: AUJ. I love it. One of my favourite films. 8/10. So cosy. Love all the designs, almost everything about it. A few flaws, but they do not detract too much.

Least favourite: DOS. Even if an EE adds more scenes where scenes are missing such as Beorn and Mirkwood and fleshes many more things out I am sure it will still be my least favourite. Well unless TABA massively messes up. Many very 2D and melodramatic scenes with characters and the inexcusable frequent inter cutting between Smaug/Laketown. Completely kills the tension. Although, who knows, maybe PJ will somehow deal with this and solve it. If patched up completely in all places, DOS would be my favourite. In terms of actual content, IMO it has the most potential.

Also, BONUS QUESTION. Where do you guys think the DOS EE and the TABA EE DVD's will be divided into two?

So, for FOTR it was the making of the fellowship. For TTT it was Faramir taking the Hobbits. For ROTK it was Grond. For AUJ it was Rivendell and Azog getting angry.

DOS: When the company meet Bard and see the Lonely Mountain.

TABA: After Dol Guldur when Gandalf is rescued.

Am hoping TABA will be the best of the trilogy but that remains to be seen. It couldn't be worse than DOS so I would rate it...TABA, AUJ, DOS

For me, I think TABA, DOS, AUJ....but, we will have to wait and see. [In reply to] Can't Post

It will be a sad day when the stream of movies comes to an end.

Kind of a Grey Havens scene.
