I thought Journey was excellent. I enjoyed Journey more than I enjoyed Fellowship. I thought that the reviews were too critical, honestly.
The review I read on The Verge was especially over the top critical of the film. They complain that the pace of the film is too slow and there is too much over explaining that is done, and then complain about not spending enough time describing the Shire.
The Hobbit, as a movie series, is clearly a prequel. As a prequel, the movie expects the audience to be familiar with the three LoTR movies. There is no need to cover ground already covered in the original 3 movies again in a prequel.

I'm a little surprised that there's no similar thread for Desolation of Smaug here... But anyway, being a big LoTR fan I am quite positive that I'll enjoy every damn movie that features Tolkien's stories (and made with the same quality, of course). I didn't expect to see anything else after LoTR, but The Hobbit was a great surprise, Unexpected Journey and Desolation of Smaug. I really wonder why some people are saying that these movies are too long...for me they're too short! I love the legends, artifacts, characters, everything is pictured quite beautiful by Peter Jackson, his team and the actors. It really gets you INSIDE that world for a few hours. And after the movie ends, I'm like "that's it???? DAMN YOU!", every time...
This year, The Hobbit will end, and unfortunately I've read that this will be the end of all the movies featuring Tolkien's universe. Too bad, I wished these adventures will never end...
