Too much of a good thing?

When it comes down to it, most people will say that books are usually better than their movie adaptations. For one thing, you can't pack all of the detail and richness of a 400-page book into a two-hour movie.

But what if you have three three-hour movies? NPR film critic Kenneth Turan suggests that this is giving the filmmakers behind The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey too much time to draw events out.

I'll reserve judgment until I've seen it myself. Preferably with a drinking horn in hand.
