Film Format Seen? 3D 24 fps
Will view again in a different format? Yes

Well I went to the premiere and took the adivce of fellow ringers and watched my first showing in 24fps. I had a blast! Everything was so well done. The comedy, the use of music, the acting of all the dwarves and the character development with them all. Favorite Dwarf has got to be Ken Scott a.k.a. Balin. Spot on as were all of the dwarves. They were all so different from each other and yet still felt like a family. Speaking of characters I'd like to talk, and this will be the bulk of my review, about Radagast the Brown (Sylvester McCoy). There are so many haters! What is wrong with you guys! I just don't understand. Not only did Sylvester add his own twist on the character, he performed right on. All the bird crap on his head and him running around the forest was totally awesome in my oppinion. I just thought he was awesome and my only complaint was that he didn't get more scenes, whcihc I think he will in the extended edition. Well all in all I really enjoyed it and have very few things to complain about. Oh! AFter hearing Barry Humphrey as the GoblinKing I am dissapointed he won't be in the next two. Did such a good job.

A question to think about: Do you think Radagast will have more screen time in the next two films or less or the same?
