The Hobbit was much better than I expected. I love JRR Tolkiens works and the lotr movies, but people kept saying it was awful. IT WAS THE ONLY INSTANCE WHERE I THOUGHT THE MOVIE WAS BETTER THAN THE BOOK. They only took out the sequence of Beorn the wizard which could fit into the second one. They added many things like Azog the defiler, Radagast, the white council, the creation of the Mirkwood, the rise of sauron, and even Frodo was in it. Every scene not added was exactly like the book. The dialouge in original scenes from the book were 90% exactly like in the book. I think the critics saying it was bad know nothing about lotr and tolkien.
