I wasn't very enthusiastic about them turning the book into two movies. I HATE the idea of 3. This is the shortest book of all the Hobbit/LOTR books and it's just a cash grab at this point. The biggest flaw in Jackson's King Kong was that he tried to turn a classic into a longer than needed movie and we ended up with way too much cartoon action sequences. I can't stand the thought of having to sit through more Treebeard-type scenes.
