I was lucky to see the film 2 times... And I loved it both times. I had no problems with the story going away from the book. But the scene with Tauriel hearing Kili made me want to roll my eyes the second time viewing it, then there's comes the part of Tauriel. I was hesitant about her being in the movie, but I wanted to wait before I judged her and I loved her.. E.L did a wonderful job playing her. As for Beorn, I agree with most people when they say his part was too short but it was still wonderfully done. As for the 3D, I only saw it in regular 3D and personally it didn't really add anything for me. Overall, I would be willing to watch it again and again.
