As a very deep LOTR fan, I had huge expectations for this. And they were all met. Considering 3 actors I absolutely love were in it, Richard Armitage, Sylvester McCoy, and Martin Freeman (Being a Sherlock, Doctor Who, and Robin Hood fan), I was already geeking out before it came out. I saw it today and I wore Arwen's necklace and I held a sonic screwdriver from Doctor Who. Seeing Richard in his role of Thorin gave me chills. He blew it out of the water! I hardly recognized him. And the song Misty Mountains sung by all the dwarves gave me goosebumps! The scenery was amazingly beautiful, but that was to be expected. Martin Freeman also fit Bilbo pretty amazingly as well. You can see how his character grows throughout the film. All in all, it's worth watching several times in theaters and then buying it.
