I have a friend who really pretty PO'ed about no Tom Bombadil, but to non-readers, it would make no sense and it would've taken too long ot include in the movies, so I understand.
I would have loved for them to have had tom Bombadil in, but I completely understand why it wasn't. Given how much PJ got into the LOTR trilogy, I am not sure anyone could ask for anything more.
The Hobbit has had more changes, but PJ is mixing in some other Tolkien things that will never see the screen otherwise. I trust his judgement and look forward to the next two films.
