I see discussion of The Hobbit on the previous page. My opinion of the movie was that it had absolutely terrible pacing. Understandable, since it was based on a book and can't be too different in that regard, but I imagine they could have the entire experience much more enjoyable in a single movie. There is much that could have been cut, which would have been awful for mega fans or whatever, but would have ultimately resulted in a much better movie.

The only benefit I see from the stretch into three movies is the added ~200% money or everyone involved.
From what I've read the third and final movie is going to be a bunch of extra stuff. Basically, the an extra 30 mins on the 2nd movie and you could call it a wrap. I still want to see them though.
