    Can’t wait for this film to be released. Ive been a fan of Tolkiens Middle Earth since 1986 when I first read the Hobbit and would love to see an extended extended edition of the trilogy. It did annoy me when people criticise the first film for being too long as I would have liked it to be longer. I also hope part 2 is a long one too. I’m holding off on the dvds as im waiting for an extended 6 film boxed set. Maybe a super extended edition l, that would be most welcome. Peter Jackson has done a remarkable job with Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and can’t wait to see what he’ll do in the future. For anyone who wants to know what an overlong and tedious film looks like, let me point you towards Avatar and Titanic.
