You would think that would be obvious tho, I mean LotR were tailored for a certain audience and this was tailored for that audience, so...

Lotr esp. the fellowship was ready for a much better casual viewership imo

plus i think was drew so many people in the first time round was the huge battles but the hobbit doesn't really have that at all

yeah it's a whole different beast altogether, which is why I understand that it was probably a bit sloppy in places. they have to adapt a children's book in a way that remains true to its source while still being easy to recognize as part of the same story/universe as LotR, which is so different from it in every way. :(

exactly. plus in the hobbit tolkien didn't really describe in as much detail like in LOTR, just the bilbo centric parts. all the stuff about the necromancer/the orcs/the goblin bits etc etc were all down to jackson and how he could interpret it.
