Jackson is such a great director, so this will just be wonderful!
This is pretty much my thoughts entirely. I was pretty p'd off when I saw the Academy's reaction to the Hobbit, it deserved much more recognition than it received. Whilst the HFR perk didn't add too much to the quality, that shouldn't take away from the fact of it being an outstanding and incredibly gripping movie which seems to be looked over a lot amongst all the quality/expectation complaints. There's also common complaints of the story not needing three films to tell the story, but I have no idea about that since I haven't read the book haha. Though judging by the first film I don't think this is an issue - it didn't feel too padded out or dragged on or anything of the like when I watched it. I just can't wait for part 2.
