Film Format Seen? Imax 3D 48 fps

Congratulation to Peter Jackson and his team for making an excellent movie. I was a little worried about this movie because of the reviews that it got, but The Hobbit an Unexpected Journey met an exceeded my expections. The 48 fps did take a little while for me to get used to but it made the 3D amazing, I ducked a few times the 3D was so good. Peter made a few changes to the story I would not have, for example I would have left the troll scene the same as the book, I know why he changed this scene, to make the scene have more action, but I loved that scene in the book so much the way it was. I would not have changed what happened in Rivendell either. Elrond tried to help the Dwarves, he did not try and hinder them leaving. All that said though I realise this is Peter Jackson's Hobbit, not Toliken's and I think he did a fantastic job with this movie, a must see for not only Lord of the Ring fans, but everyone who enjoys epic films.
