I think... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm looking forward to Elijah and Sir Ian Holm's cameos most. This is by far the most hobbit-centric tale Tolkien ever wrote/told (he first told this as a story to entertain his 4 children, after all). I've already seen that Mr Jackson will get somethings magnificently right and others magnificently wrong in adapting Tolkien so I know I'm in store for surprises, some pleasant and some not. But the one thing Mr Jackson got "most right" about his LotR adaptations were hobbits and I want this to be a continuation on that score (allusion to Howard Shore's score intended as "Concerning Hobbits" is still imo the most brilliant piece of music from an incredibly brilliant score). I want Martin Freeman to truly channel and BE a younger Sir Ian Holmes and not try to re-create Bilbo too much. Obviously characters grow with years even if they don't age, but I want to see a genuine connexion between portrayals that is my 'bridge' betwixt the works.
Finally I want to see how (or perhaps 'if', as I've not kept up with the spoilers) Mr Jackson handles the 60 years' time between the end of The Hobbit and the beginning of The Lord of the Rings. Realistically he COULD make the ENTIRE second movie about this but what I read from Quickbeam and others seems to indicate that such won't be the case and I find myself vaguely disappointed in that.
