However, I can see his criticism of the Hobbit being valid, as the hobbit is more of a coming-of-age/quest novel. I think that Jackson is trying to transform the source material into more of an action/war movie in the same vein as LOTR, and I can see that causing problems and contradicting the "feel" of the novel.
I think Jackson has flat-out said he's modifying The Hobbit a bit (three movies and using a lot of the Silmarillion) to kind of mirror the LOTR trilogy in both length and tone.
