 Rings!

I really loved the movie. I was really worried by my opinion and others opinions (like from the Hobbit magazine) that it would be slllooooowwwwwwww with THREE PARTS! But, we were wrong. Horribly wrong. The movie was maybe even better than at least ONE of the LOTR
movies. Action packed, while sticking to mister J.R.R. Tolkien's great book! The other movies will obviously be great, and you can tell with this movie setting off a good vibe for the trilogy. The makeup and CGI make the characters as they would be if we were shooting shooting arrows alongside Thorin and his crew! I especially liked the scene with Radagast. His odd character brought some laughs and his Bunny Sled was EPIC. Overall, thumbs up Peter Jackson, I can't wait until December 13, 2013.
