Someone asked me if I liked more, FOTR or AUJ. I can honestly say I like FOTR more. There is a story and you can follow it. AUJ seemed like a bunch of unrelated pieces thrown together to make a movie. That being said, I like to read FOTR more then I like the Hobbit. AUJ moves and feels like the begging of the book. It's slow, hard to follow at times and seems to drag on. So in a since I guess PJ did well in capturing that feeling in the movie. Overall It was great, and I am very happy I went to see it. :) Just another year now until the next movie. Much better then 10 years.
