Re: Can't be a single movie
I guess Peter Jackson wasn't available.
After seeing The Horrid (or a few minutes of it in my case), aren't you glad? He didn't do too badly on the LOTR (since I hadn't read any of the books at that stage) but I had read The Hobbit several times in my teens and a couple of times later..
What he did to that story makes me ashamed to share the same planet as him, let alone country.
