I remember when you all defended the decision to pad the film with a bunch of LOTR filler and make it into three films "because they're adding what's in the appendices!" well some of us were saying its a terrible idea and will never work. LOOK WHO WAS RIGHT. The film is getting Phantom Menace level of attention now. People say it is way overlong, full of unnecessary LOTR filler and eye rolling that there'll be two more films. It's THE PHANTOM MENACE all over.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)
The new Phantom Menace.
