My issue is not them using the appendices but the misleading that they are doing while promoting them. Jackson has always insisted there are 125 pages, which that much is correct. The problem is there are maybe 11 or 12 pages at most that have anything to do with the Hobbit or the characters contained in the Hobbit. Most of which being in the section on Durin's Folk (appendix A section III) which is roughly 8 and a half pages with a nice lineage tree as well. The only thing from them that Jackson did right was Thorin son of Thrain son of Thror, other than that unfortunately, events of the dwarfs was altered so that it does not resemble what is in the appendices. 3 pages of the appendices are of the battle of Azanulbizar their lead up and execution Nothing like what we got in the film.



a 2 film series with a more complete/accurate Dwarven backstory would have been more to my liking a more true to Tolkien canon with the Necromancer subplot just recieving an honorable mention.
