Just got back from this(FINALLY), and holy shit.
Peter Jackson is a fucking genius.
I had my doubts, what with the critics stupid ass opinions, but I can now safely say that the magic is still here. This is without a doubt still cinematic excellence, and it's obvious the critics were expecting a carbon copy of LOTR. The feels are still here, the ending made me cry inside.
My most exciting scene award goes to when the Dwarves don't go back on their word and all attack the three orcs when Bilbo is in danger.
Only problems I have are with several dwarves getting literally no character development, and the fact that you have to suspend your disbelief a little to believe that they could get out of some of the situations they were in completely intact.
9.5/10 (still not better than any of the LOTR films, of course)
