 Rings!

Absolutely loved it. I'll be going back several more times while it's in theatres to make sure I catch everything. I could have sat through another hour easily. Brilliant and beautiful movie. The casting was every bit as good as Lord of the Rings. Martin Freeman is the perfect Bilbo, and Richard Armitage was wonderful as Thorin. I'm mystified by the critics who thought it moved too slowly - I could barely keep up in some parts. Everything moved along very nicely, thank you. And the crew has really perfected all the tricks that make us believe we're seeing little hobbits and dwarves side by side with large wizards and elves. The only CGI I had a problem with was Azog - he never did feel completely real.
