The problem i had with Peter Jackson filming the Hobbit movies (besides the dumb changes to the story) was the tone of the movies. He or the studio felt the need to have them match the look and feel of the LOTR. Yeah it’s the same world and same characters but tonally it just doesn’t work, as the story is a bit more fantastic and adventurous. The film we got had none of the soul that the animated versions do despite having a ton of budget to dip into.
Anyway. I can talk about my issues with LOTR and The Hobbit forever.
