Will view again in a different format? Yes

I have been a Hobbit fan for many years and I have been really looking forward to seeing this view of Middle earth again. The scenery was truly amazing and the costumes and set design were really well done.
I really loved the interaction between Bilbo and the dwarves. I could see they really loved and respected Thorin as their returning King. I especially loved Balin (especially referring to Sting as a letter opener)
The thing I was truly not happy with was Azog ( the Pale Orc). I didnt feel this was in keeping with the story at all especially to have him so closely following the Dwarves.

The two scenes I truly loved was Bilbo, Gollum and the Riddle game, and the last scene of the movie where Samug is covered by the gold and slowly moves and opens his eye. I always though Smaug was red and orange, this lighting made him look blue.

Anyway, Thanks Peter for giving us another look at Middle Earth. I'm looking forward to the next two installments
