 Rings!

I thought the movie was excellent. I was initially a bit apprehensive about certain things, being stretched to 3 movies and the tie-ins to the LOTR movies for instance, but so far it has been done well. The details of the story haven't changed so much and the tie-ins haven't been too out there. Realistically I think The Hobbit, script and story, could have been taken exactly as is from the book and been made into 2 wonderful movies. But I am excited to see the rest of the trilogy and how it is all linked together. As long as it does not stray to far from the original and nothing is left out (which over three movies, nothing from one book should be left out at all)I think it will be a fantastic trilogy. Wonderful job so far! Highly recommended.
