Just read this article:
And it seems a lot of fans feel the same way as numerous of you on here do in regards to the prequel trilogy for Star Wars. Lots of CGI and money put into the prequels but it just can't hold a candle to the originals. Also reading that comment by Ian McKellen on the thread regarding Liam Nesson acting in Phantom Menace and how they almost quit the business because of the crappy experience with blue screen makes it seem like there is almost a repeat of history here. Personally I hate what they did with the Hobbit, filling the movies with so much filler and made up junk just to make a trilogy. I think it should have just been 2 movies or 1. I'd rather watch Phantom Menace than the Hobbit 1...it was so boring and took too long for the story to start in my opinion. Second one was better but still had it's problems. You guys think the Hobbit prequel trilogy suffering the same problems as the Star Wars prequel Trilogy?
