As a huge fan of LOTR, I was expecting great things from The Hobbit. I was not disappointed. Peter Jackson did a wonderful job, once again, of keeping true to Tolkien. There were, of course, differences from the book, but that is to be expected. Those things that were a bit different added to the story. I especially enjoyed the interaction of Gandalf and Galadriel. The opening sequence with Frodo was fun and necessary for non-book readers to see how The Hobbit leads to LOTR. My first viewing left me smiling and I will definitely be heading back to the theater for another.
