I don't think they could've found anyone better.  This is going to put his other projects (one of which was At the Mountains of Madness) off for quite a while though.

The Hobbit 2? XD If they mean two parts then I can say okay to that but isn't "The Hobbit 2" the, you know... Lord of the Rings? Still, I'm glad for del Toro. He's got an amazing talent for movies and everything I've seen from him always looks great.

Excellent choice.  Not sure about the decision to break it up into 2 movies, but we'll see what happens.

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

This reminds me of a cartoon adaptation I saw of The Hobbit once.  Wow, was it crappy, I mean seriously, I was blind for two days because of that.  I'm hoping that this will be better, but it might get a bad rap because it's a prequel.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
