Anyhow, my initial reaction to the 'second LotR film' ain't positive.

I'm looking forward to The Hobbit but the prospect of a 'second LotR' film just makes me feel like a curmudgeon, or an über-purist.
I'm really excited about The Hobbit, too. It was my favorite LotR book.

I agree with you on the point that there is no source material for this "bridge" movie. I'm interested to see it, just because I like LotR, but it kind of seems like they're just going to make up the second movie. That doesn't sound too smart to me.
