Worst kinds of movies... eva!
Agreed. The sheer volumes of people saying it's fantastic makes me think it'll be a very mediocre movie. I also couldn't make sense of the trailer for the life of me. But I enjoy going to the movies anyways, and I'm sure it's an alright movie.
I've heard a lot of people complain about that movie, anything from it being too much not-like the book (which was to be expected) to it being too short. Honestly I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. The only quarrel I had with it was that I felt it ended too abruptly, but I guess it's hard to find a proper "movie-ending" for the first part of a book that doesn't end until much later. It's been so long since I read the Hobbit though that I can't say that it's really fresh in my mind. Only thing I can think of right now is that I think I recall there being only 2 trolls vs. the 3 in the movie (major difference, eh).
But in any case, I'd definitely recommend that movie to anyone.
