I hope they get the dragon right. Hollywood always makes dragons sissy.

Well, he was done both right and wrong. He was monstrous, but he wasn't sadistic nor very evil. In other words he was done Hollywood style, he just wasn't made to be as "sissy" as dragons of old. The whole movie was pretty much like that, not just the dragon. Wish it was more like The Lord of the Rings, where things were more believable, more about Middle Earth and less about Hollywood. What was more disturbing was it took three movies to complete the story. That was acceptable with The Lord of the Rings because the book was 1,000 some pages long, but the Hobbit was only 200 some pages long.

I was fine with them expanding the story, I just didn't much like the way they stretched it with silly action scenes like the barrel ride or the final battle with all that phony Hollywood "suspense."

The absurdly vast, unending pile of gold, more gold than the gold in a whole galaxy, turned it into a fire breathing Scrooge McDuck cartoon and ruined the movie for me. Also, the part in the book when Smaug wakes up and notices the cup missing was skipped, I always thought that was a funny incident, a cool scene cut. Tolkien is puking in his grave, too bad because the other LoTR movies are incredibly good . D-

Maybe, instead of calling it ‘The Hobbit’ call it ‘Hobbitty Thing on bad Mushrooms’.
