I understand where you are coming from, but keep in mind that, while "The Hobbit" is the prequel to "The Lord of the Rings", it wasn't written in the
same style. "The Hobbit" is more of a childrens adventure book and has a elementry to middle school reading level.
"The Lord of the Rings" is a story that has a much darker feel to it since they are literally fighting to save the world from total annihilation of
humans and good in the world. "The Hobbit" does sets the stage up for "LOTR" trilogy, but is actually just an epic Fantasy/Adventure story with a
touch of humor to hookline most kids to young adults.
Personally, I think Peter Jackson has stayed close to the nature of the book, while still giving it his own artist spin on it as he did with the LOTR.
Now, it should not be a made into a trilogy since it could be contained in one movie by itself, but because I love J.R.R. Tolkiens books and Peter
Jacksons renditions of them....I won't complain!
