Not knowing what to expect in how much and in what ways the additional materials from Lost Tales and LOTR appendices would be woven in to the story, I had mixed expectations of the movie itself. I didn't know where in the plot of the book the break would occur, and that added to the excitement of seeing something played out that I had read many times, but with huge amounts of backstory added in. I hope the other two films do similar things, and in hindsight wish that PJ could have made double features of each book in LOTR. The Radagast story was nice, but I was also hoping to see the Elves singing as the party entered Rivendell. I didn't think that the 3D was necessary to the enjoyment of the film, and will probably see it in 2D the next time.
