 Rings!

I was very excited to see the movie at the midnight release and had to see it at the 48 HFR 3D as intended. Shockingly different and it took a bit to look past this. Everything was great but distractingly so initially. I saw it again today "normal" and would recommend the Jackson version 100%.

There was plenty of dialog from the book, which was great, and the additional scenes beyond the book taken from the appendixes or elsewhere worked for me. Particularly Radagast and the Erebor prologue were great. I've seen some reviews that didn't like the troll sneeze, the bird poop on Radagast or the Azog and goblin king in CGI. It all worked for me.

I can't wait for the next two!
