 Rings!

This movie was amazing. It took about thirty seconds before I was completely captivated by the story and it had me enthralled through its entire length. Visually, it was the most appealing movie I have ever seen; it was more beautiful than Avatar and that movie was made just to say "Look how pretty our backgrounds are." There are a few elements that might give fans of the book some pause. The treatment of Radagast the Brown could leave some feeling unsatisfied. There are more action sequences than in the novel, but that is what happens when you convert a children's story into an epic movie. Any fan of the first Peter Jackson trilogy will be thrilled with this new movie. People who resented Jackson's Lord of the Rings for the changes he made will likely resent him again for the changes he made thus far. Are they earth-shattering changes that really alter the course of the story? No, not really. I thought it was brilliant. My one complaint was that I had more beard than a few of the dwarves and that just does not sit well with me. Other than that, the movie was amazing and I cannot wait until next December when The Desolation of Smaug comes out!
