 Rings!

I liked everything about it, but I really wish they would have spent more time at Beorn's house and had the scene from the book where the company interrupts the elves feast in the woods.
Tauriel was okay. It didn't bother me one way or the other, neither did the triangle.
My main focus was on Richard(my favorite)and the start of Thorin's decline.
Right now, he's in the "Jeckle and Hyde" mode. Good and brooding as usual, then greedy and cold the next. He left his nephews behind in Lake Town, and showed no remorse where in the first film he was worried about them and wanted nothing better than to keep them safe. What if Kili died? Would he feel any remorse?
Good acting done by all and I will definitely see it again and again! :)
