 Rings!

I loved it! I was prepared for it to be different than the book, so the additions didn't bother me. I felt that all in all, the little tidbits thrown in from the Silmarillian, Appendices and other Tolkien sources made the story richer. Better yet though was the use of actual text from the book, like the "Good morning" exchange between Biblbo and Gandolf at the beginning. I also liked hearing familiar musical themes from "The Lord of the Rings", like the Shire theme. It made the film feel familiar and connected with the other movies. They did a great job on incorporating some of Tolkien's poems and songs. The dwarves singing the "dishes" song and then the dark song about the mountain was brilliant. I can't wait for the rest of the films to come out.
