Just saw it. Good film, nothing amazing but it was a fun adventure movie. A little on the long side though. Plus there were bitches behind me who just wouldn't shut up so that wasn't helping. But otherwise yeah, I'm glad I went.
- The city of Erebor. As a huge fan of Dragon Age, I had fond memories of Orzammar coming back to me.
- Things being tied into FOTR as a taste of things to come!
- I was shocked and happy to hear a few old songs again!
- Riddles In The Dark was my favorite part. (although I don't recall the fish or darkness riddles being used though?)
- The rock giants. While it was a visual wonder, the scene was over the top. Even for a fantasy film.
- The lack of the goblin's song
- How Bilbo found The One Ring was changed. They should've just tried to match the prologue scene in FOTR since it was more book accurate.
- I hated the climax. I know it happened in the book, but it takes away the impact of what happens near the end. And now it will have the same effect of what's going to happen near the end of the 3rd film.
This seems to be a movie that most of the critics jus about missed. I usually. Only read reviews after I see a movie to see if my review matches theirs (just for fun I guess) and I was surprised at his many critics didn't like it.
A lot are cocomplaining about the time spent in the shire. God forbid they spend some time setting the story up and explaining what's going on (cause you know, that's kind of important...maybe that's just me). Then there is a complaint about them going to Rivedell (sp?), calling it a "scene created by Jackson to bring back failure characters from the LOTR movies." Guess non of these critics bothered reading the book first. Then a lot of people seem to think thug Jackson just pulled stuff out of his mass to make this a trilogy. Guess non of these critics read the news that Jackson was incorporating other material from the Tolkien library? Lastly, making the film a trilogy is justified. Tue book may be shorter but a lot of shit happens. The film would be WAY too rushed if it wasn't broken up
Now, this isn't a perfect movie. Some time probably could have been shaved off here and there and some scenes could have been done a little better. But the film overall oscillation fun and very enjoyable. I think people are looks g for reasons to hate it and compare it to the LOTR, even though they are completely different stories and styles.

Btw, Hamlet dies.
does that mean I can spoil AGOT for all the people in the thread because some of the books were written a long time ago. it makes sense right, it was written a long time ago so everyone has obviously already read the series and therefore its fair game to spoil the people that havent.
