This is Tolkien's story AS told by Jackson. If you're a purist, then I'm sure you will hate it, in which case don't go. For the rest of us, I think Jackson has earned our trust that he will do no harm, and will entertain us greatly with his vision of the story.
Yup. I'm a bit of a "purist" but that hasn't kept me from enjoying the films immensely.

Some aspects of the first Hobbit movie were a bit over the top and childish for me but looking back it certainly makes sense considering the Hobbit was far more a childrens book. I actually think the entire 6 movie series will work on many levels once the 2 remaining Hobbit films are finished.

The only MAJOR thing I would change about all of it (so far) is I'd put Tom Bombadil back in the Fellowship.
