I was less keen on the constant attempts to shoehorn Arwen into the plot because "we need more elf-tits", and having Elves march to Helm's Deep from Lorien in a matter of days was pretty inexplicable. Still, I thought the movies were about as good a treatment as the material will ever get on the big screen.
What he said.

I am looking forward to these movies. I am much lest invested in The Hobbit as I was for LotR, so I will be even less in nitpick mode than with those three movies. I am looking forward to return to Middle Earth.
