    A 200-some page children’s book that’s turned into three 3-hour movies is “slightly” bloated? :)

    Yeh, yeh, yeh, the first Hobbit movie was way too long. But let’s stop with the myth that this is a 3-movie adaptation of a 200-page children’s book. Jackson pulled from other sources, including the lengthy appendices of the LOTR trilogy, to add a lot more story.
