 Rings!

I really loved the film. It captured the feel and magic of the original Lord of the Rings films and within minutes I was deeply focused in the story. I thought that the characters were spot on. It had a good balance between introduction of teh story and characters and the action sequences. I beleive that some reviewers seemed to want all teh action in teh first movie but there will be three. the movie looked great on teh screen and I thought moved along at a godo pace. There were only a couple minutes where I felt that it could have moved faster along. It was great to see some fo the Lord of the rings characters and it made me feel that it was just yesterday when I sat in the theater watching each of the Lord of the Rings films. I felt liek it was pretty true to the book except for some well placed and very needed spiced up action scenes. I thought Bilbo was great and well acted. It also azazed me that some critcs marked the lovie down for the frames per second technology but I agree with Peter Jackson when he sadi that it is his duty to keep the movies he makes at the forefront of technology for us. You can choose to see it in 2D or 3D or 3D Imax etc but that is our choice. I left wanting more but that is exactly where we shoudl all leave it thinking we only have a yyear to wait till the next one. I can't wait and I am sure things get even more exciting as we get deeper into the book's story with the movies. Great job Peter and everone who made this happen. I will be watching these movies over and over again.
