3 hours for what? I know PJ is popular and all, but someone please buy this man an editor. This movie was just ridiculously long with so much unneeded exposition. While the second half did pick up, the first half was spent with me muttering to myself: "Cut this scene. Cut this one, too." This played like any of the LotR extended editions with a lot of good backstory, but distracting to the central story. I despised everything about Radogast: his poopy hair, his 'whimsical eccentricity,' and the fact that he led the orcs on a chase EXACTLY PARALLEL to the path the Bilbo and the dwarves took. Stupid.
