Jackson needs to flesh out the source material as the Hobbit is such a short book. I'm still not convinced it will make two decent movies.

I thought the LOTR movies were a pretty good rendition of the books, where the changes were mostly justified. For example even though I enjoyed the Old Forest & Barrow Downs excursion in the book, it would have been hard to recreate in a movie (especially Tom Bombadil, who is a bit of a crap character frankly). 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.
