The Lord of the Rings movies is widely considered one of the greatest film trilogies ever, and as individual movies they are considered masterpieces by many. These films brought about a sense of magic and awe that most films can only dream of. Do you think that, with Peter Jackson back in the directors chair, The Hobbit will be able to achieve the same masterpiece level of film-making that the Lord of the Rings was able accomplish? Will Peter Jackson be able to evoke that same sense of awe and magic as before?

I would have rather seen what Del Toro would have done with Hobbit than what Jackson will do. As much as I enjoyed the Lord of the Rings films, there's no need for The Hobbit to be 3 movies.
I am kind of curious as to what del Toro would have done. It would have been interesting but I think the Hobbit needs to be in Jackson's hands since he did an incredible job with The Lord of The Rings.
There is if you want to spend less and make more.
except for the fact that the Hobbit barely has enough in it to fit into one film. That's why when they were going to do it as two Jackson had to go and add stuff from other stories that have nothing to do with the actual novel.
I think making three films was a great idea. They are hopefully going to stay extremely faithful to the novel, but I think the inclusion of other material will add to depth of the story, and the world that, at the end, we will have spent 6 movies in.
