EXCELLENT FILM!! I cant say emphatically enough how pleased I am at how the story was well, massaged shall we say, to lend itself better to cinematography. I cant think of any point to criticize the film for ,two thumbs up and five stars across the board. My only want would be to perhaps add a bit of backstory on the gemstone to perhaps help the audience members unfamiliar with the history behind it to understand if only In small part the feelings of the dwarf and elf dynamic.perhaps it will yet come to pass. Absolute thanks to all whom were involved in making one of my all time favorite stories into its on film counterpart. It's been a long time since I actually said "now that was really cool" during a movie ,however the scene with Gandalf and during was definitely among them.
