 Rings!

These is some of the most beautiful 3d images i have ever seen, rivaling avatar for detail,depth and integrated storytelling. the cgi characters brought the art to a new level, I often found them more compelling than the human actors (not wild about a lot of the dwarve's casting!). in the pivotal riddle scene , Gollum was amazing,even more so than lotr, the subtleties of his thoughts and emotions made Bilbo seem one dimentional (another casting doubt!).
I had thought that there would be much more pointless padding to a very lean story, but the epic sweep of the art direction and the dark intensity from the earlier films made this a very different hobbit from the original. I love the fact that Shore carried on the musical themes he had used in lotr and of course Mckellen is magnificent. Forget the critics. see it!
