Tolkien Fan Level: 7
Film Format Seen? 3D 48 fps
Will view again in a different format? Yes
 Rings!

On my first viewing, I was dazzled and overwhelmed by the 48FPS format (also, very tired, since it was a midnight showing). I went to see it again the next day, and the whole thing worked quite well for me. I want to see more depth to the relationship between Thorin and Bilbo, and I'm a little apprehensive with how well the Necromancer storyline will ultimately fit into the overarching narrative, but I still liked the film quite a lot. My biggest hope is that the cultures of Laketown and of Thranduil's folks will be sketched out as effectively as was the case with Rohan and Gondor...
