Dear Peter Jackson: Please put down the CGI and step away from the Hobbit.

This is a tough request to make as a longtime fan of the New Zealand director (going back to his low-budget horror days of Bad Taste and Dead Alive) and an admirer of the dedication it took to bring J.R.R. Tolkien's seemingly unfilmable The Lord of the Rings trilogy to the screen. Jackson not only won best picture and director Oscars for the third "Rings" movie in 2004, but he became a veritable industry, responsible for generating what seems like half of his small country's GDP.

But his first installment of The Hobbit, Tolkien's relatively slim precursor to the sprawling "Rings" saga, is a technically impressive but bloated adventure that makes you feel every one of its 169 minutes. Outside the circle of the many Tolkien obsessives, the film -- whose full title is The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey -- is going to strike many as a "Rings" retread.
