Aren't there like 30 James Bond movies? So they might as well make more Star Wars movies. Plus, I like the Star Wars movies.
I enjoyed The Hobbit quite a bit, and I knew what I was getting into. I had read a lot of information about what Peter Jackson was doing with including the other plot lines that aren't in the actual book. I don't think the film is paced slowly but the gravity of the events that come to conclusion just isn't there at the end because it wasn't meant to be.

The special effects were good for most of it, but there were a few parts that looked bad, and I'm talking really bad. There are three that come to mind a few days later. One was when the rabbit sled was running around the open plains from a high wide angle shot. The physics looked like someone made a flash animation and shoved it in the film. Very fake looking. The scenes inside the mountain during the escape looked clearly all CGI and a few shots in particular very rough. When Galdalf hops down off the Griffin the physics were really off again and it looked extremely fake.
It wasn't the whole film, but they definitely didn't finish their work in a few spots. My guess would be that this is because of the 48 fps 3D. You have 4 times the frames to render than the typical 24 fps 2D, which is hugely taxing on SFX computers. What those guys can accomplish is limited by time relating to processing power. Regardless, they should have taken the time to get it right, and I hope they aren't making that mistake on the other two parts.
The extra scenes with Galadriel and the side plot line were really good. Understanding her role in middle earth is something that will make The Hobbit films enhance LOTR a lot. Within those films it really didn't make sense why everyone was so afraid of her, and there is some stuff coming in the rest of the Hobbit that will paint that picture very vividly.
You sir, are a sick individual!
