I thought the Hobbit movies were entertaining but had very little to do with the book. Sort of like some people said about the movie Noah, that it was fun to watch but had little to do with the Genesis account. So, I enjoyed them for what they were but when I want Tolkien, I go back to the book. I thought the LotR movies were much better and I really felt like I was in Middle Earth. Not so with the Hobbit movie, but it's still fun to watch.
