Except the problems have to do with more than the changes, and especially the tone and handling of the material.
That said, I don't remember burping competitions or the Goblin King joking about being killed. I doubt that's Tolkien. I also don't remember Bilbo turning action hero and assaulting orcs in the first half of the book.
I read The Hobbit about once every year or two - and I like it just as much today as I did when I was ten years old.
The movie, however, was utterly awful and no amount of articles will change how I felt when I watched it.
