Can't think what there is to be excited about - Jackson will make a complete hash of The Hobbit, just like he did with the LotR trilogy.
Controversial opinion you have there . I can't see many agreeing with you though but at least you didn't just come out with "they are shite" and leave it at that. Many Tolkien aficionados (I am not one of them, although I consider myself a film buff.....although I have been so left out of the frame regarding cinema now these last few years) consider the films to be fine adaptations. One I know can quote every poem and every song from Tolkien's catalogue and still thinks the films are peerless possibly because he realises you cannot adapt a film from a book without leaving or adding elements which please some and anger others. I am sorry that something which gave me so much pleasure gave you so little.
