I prefer the book The Hobbit to The Lord Of The Rings.
I much prefer the Hobbit movies to the LOTR movies.
I like the fact the Hobbit movies were extended with material not in the original book: I'm glad there are female characters. I love the additional material with Radagast the Brown. I love the singing and poems and sense of fun preserved from what was a novel for children.
I find the foreshadowing of Sauron in The Hobbit movies to more effectively convey a sense of dread and power than actual Sauron in the LOTR movies.
Whilst I am generally bored by large CGI battles, I find the skirmishes in The Hobbit movies to be less boring than the epic-scale ones in LOTR.
