Now Three Major Motion Pictures

You can blame Harry Potter for the latest fad in Hollywood. No longer does one book become one film; ever since the seventh and final Potter book was filmed as two movies this has emerged as a trend. The last Twilight book was released as two films. There are rumors that the Hunger Games trilogy will become four movies.

Peter Jackson is taking this one step further and several steps beyond reason. The Hobbit, a relatively short novel is now being released as three films. My enthusiasm for the release is greatly diminished, as I imagine much padding in the form of long shots of dwarves, hobbit, and wizard walking across New Zealand. The three films of Lord of the Rings dragged in places and there we had material from three books.

I think you could read the book in less time than it will take to watch the trilogy of films.
