Yeah, but the hobbit was one book, and twilight was a bunch. I'm not defending twilight, but it would make sense to have more than one movie for many different books. But hey, the more hobbit, the merrier.
@ProudGlork, false. Even one movie for the twilight series is too much.
@MACWE, I don't like them either, the only message is that without a man, you're nothing. The characters don't have flaws, the story takes random breaks so Edward can sniff Bella. It's just not good, but people without taste seemed to like them. So I tip my hat to Stephanie Meyer for getting preteens and house moms to dump so much cash on romantic fallacies.
@ProudGlork, the book is about bilbo not merry
@TheValyrian, ha ha.
@MACWE, this comment will never get a many likes as it deserves, in my eyes this is top comment ever
@MACWE, one Twilight movie? I couldn't even stand sitting through 5-min of it....and I've tried....4 FREAKIN TIMES!!!
@ProudGlork, Lord of the Rings was also originally a single book, but it got split in three by the book publisher for production reasons.
@ProudGlork, the fact people need to know was twilight sucked and the hobbit is god damned awesome. And the book was huge.
@ProudGlork, Q: Why is Edward pale? A: There's no sun that makes you sparkle in the closet.
Twilight was four books all of which considerably longer than the hobbit
I'd rather be friends with Edward Elric than Edward from twilight
@The toast, agreed!
Still a better lov.... wait that doesnt make sense
But those of us who love the hobbit have been waiting for it longer
@Shagggy, "Oh you're reading the Hobbit? I love it, I can't wait to see the movie." "Oh, yeah me, too. I'm actually just brushing up on it, I read it when it first came out." ".....You read it in the 1930s?......" "..............."
It's annoying that people complain about the Hobbit being three movies. It's amazing literature, as well as cinema. I wouldn't mind if it was ten movies. As long as it's good.
FUN FACT: This text is actually red, but thanks to the Doppler effect, we see it as blue. I thought you might find this quite interesting.
Am I the only one who thinks funny pics should put a time and a date on the picture description??
I am glad people complain about the hobbit being 3 movies it restores my hopes to return to a buying consumer populous that likes true artist's work
Not just some sh** that "came to me in a dream"
J. R. R. Tolkien is a true writer
Besides, split movies means instead of a single 2 hour movie that doesn't do the book justice, we get 3 movies and 6 hours total (which does the book better). Give or take a few minutes And who in their right mind complains about seeing more LotR?
First came the Silmarillion, then The Hobbit, then LOTR.
I complained a lot about Twilight. D:
Doesn't matter 1 hobbit movie is better than 5 twilight movies
Well that depends, you want a completely rushed couple of movies, or do you want three well done movies. The hobbits awesome.
If the hobbit was one movie then a lot of things would be left out and there is no way to fit all of the hobbit into a single movie that is reasonable lengthed.
Harry Potter was split and no one made this much of a fuss.
They wouldn't do the hobbit justice if they only made one movie on it.
How does one simply know how many twilight movies there are.
I sure hope though that the hobbit will have a box set and maybe a extended version like the lord of the rings did
But the hobbit was one book and not four books with the last one being über long. Not complainig but it makes sense to have 4-5 movies for a series of books rather than a series of movies for one book.
Fool of a tuck
Can't wait for Evil Dead! They brought back the tree raping scene, gonna be legen...........................................................................................dary!
.erots eht ta m'I
@IamaJ, dude you will not last long here.
Even thinking about twilight being a movie is too much ...even thinking about twilight is too much.... Twilight can suck my beet juice .
And the Hobbit is technically the prequel of Lord of the Rings, so therefore 6 movies in total. About 18 total hours of pure beauty.
Also, it's not just the hobbit. The movies are also including the appendix to The Lord of the rings that explains where Gandalf would go when he disappeared in the book. Basically, giant ass battle between 4 or so different armies.
What about The Hobbit 18
Well, the hobbit was the SHORTEST BOOK that was to do with The Lord of the Rings but it will be 9 hours long in total whereas all of the other LOTR movies were two hours (roughly) per book
@Johanna Mason, hat doesn't mean hobbit should be short that just means lotr should be longer lol
There are two reasons why the Hobbit is three films; 1) because Peter Jackson wanted to get as much of the book in as possible. 2) MONEY! The more awesome films there are means more money. Simple
That's because are all really, really long
In all fairness the hobbit is two films with the unfinished tale as the last one
Nibbles para fars nippers?
Quality over quanity
The amount of time people have complained about the twilight saga just in general: 10+ years
I never read twilight but something tells me it would have been better though my perception
@SoftTaco, No. It's about how she is nothing without a man. There are no character flaws, they're all perceived as perfect, and they have no depth. It's bad, really, really bad.

Excuse me for being impatient.
