Keep the Eloquence AND the Innocence Can't Post

Hey, I'm new here and this is my first post. I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan, and I know that everyone doesn't want GDT to make the movies exactly like Lord of the Rings, but he should at least make them with the same eloquence as Jackson did. I don't want to see the Hobbit be made into a really corny movie just because its more innocent. I don't think the elves should sing as they do in the book (if they do it should be in hushed almost haunting whispers that are more like sirens"). And I don't think Smaug should talk. Now before I continue, he should have lines, but he should say them without moving his mouth and in a somewhat more mystic manner. I'm sorry I just think Smaug talking is incredibly corny. I do think the movies should be less dark than Lord of the Rings but in no manner less eloquent. Fans and purists will probably bash me for this but It's truly what I think is in best interest for the movies, Im not sure if anyone else agrees.
