I'm pretty excited about this. The Hobbit was one of the first books I remember reading and it held me spellbound from start to finish and was largely responsible for igniting my interest in fantasy novels. I really enjoyed Jackson's Lord Of The Rings trilogy (although I have a few small reservations about how he handled the closing half hour of Return Of The King). For the two Hobbit movies he has an interesting cast at his disposal. There was some discussion in another forum about his take on King Kong and The Lovely Bones. I enjoyed the hell out of King Kong but i've yet to watch his adaptation of Alice Sebold's masterpiece. I put that down to the fact that I loved the book and have repeatedly read reports that the movie is largely a failure. Hopefully his mojo will be firing on all cylinders for the two Hobbit movies.
