I thought the the film adaptation of the hobbit was very well done. So well done that I actually watched it 5 times in the theatres. The movie did an excellant job of making the dwarves unique and easily recognizable. I also enjoyed the relationship and the expansion of the roles of Kili and Fili. Could they be the Hobbit's Merry and Pippin??
I do have two complaints about it though; one, i did not like the animation and design of the goblins. in the lord of the Rings they looked more realistic than in the hobbit. Secondly, the line "that'll do it" spoken by the goblin king did not fit in with the previous dialogue.
All in all, the Hobbit was an amazing movie, that has become on of my favourites. I am extremely excited for the next two installments.
