Fist of all: Bard, Beorn, Bilbo, the spiders and Mirkwood are simply amazing.
In my opinion, three films are simply too much for a book like The Hobbit. The Hobbit is about half the size FotR, and there's just one film for FotR. Besides that, I don't think that inserting Tauriel was absolutely necessary: a film doesn't need to have many feminin roles to be good. I also think that Smaug isn't wise enough.
I think it's a very good film, but LotR was an excellent trilogy. The special effects in LotR were so good almost ten years ago that they're still very good now. This trilogy can never be a suitable prequel for LotR.
