Ringer Review - NAME

Tolkien Fan Level: 6
Film Format Seen? 3D 48 fps
Will view again in a different format? Yes

I sure loved visiting Middle-Earth in a brighter, cheerier and funnier atmosphere (despite Azog) that I feel complements the Lord of the Rings very well. The acting was magnificent, I am super glad Freeman was chosen for Bilbo. I did not not enjoy the 48 fps, and the 3D was excellent and was used very well.
Despite its minor letdowns, such as Bilbo seeming to fall way to far to survive in Goblintown or Saruman being a bit too cold were few. Technical errors mentioned by others slipped by me completely, and I was able to enjoy the film, it going by too fast for me rather than being to long.
I believe An Unexpected Journey will be even terrific as Part 1 of the Hobbit than as a movie of itself, and I cannot wait for Desolation of Smaug and There and Back Again.
Oh yeah just started watching FOTR again and I actually found myself missing the comical dwarves and radagast
