 Rings!

theres 3 camps of critics, A-those that just read the Hobbit, B-those that read Hobbit and LOTR and C-those that never read any material. Im in the B crowd and i gotta say I didnt mind the changes. It made for better pacing and I can see where theyre going to take this. I absolutely loved the LOTR trilogy but i have to say that i enjoyed the Hobbit more than FOTR. Its almost like they improved on everything they experienced in the first trilogy. The script and acting were a joy to hear and watch. Im going to watch this a few times and I think people complaining about this movie are people too focused on the fact that PJ spread 1 book into 3 movies and that he's a sell out..blah blah.I for one am glad theres more Middle Earth to watch and im sure the ppl complaining will see the next 2...all in all, the Hobbit was like buying a new and improved car...but no matter what, you'll always love your previous car. thumbs up PJ! Go see it and pay no mind to the critics!!
