Alla! Here it is, my mixed feelings review!

1) Tauriel is okay. A dwarf falling in love with an Elf is not okay
2) Thorin is amazing as always, no comment on that
3) Bilbo is amazing as always, no comment on that
4) Bilbo wasn't that affected by the Ring, PJ, as seen in the spiders scene. Akhem
5) Lego Legolas jumping on heads with Lego Legolas' Lego Lass, aka Tauriel is not okay
6) PJ making Tauriel/Arwen and Kili/Frodo sequence NOT okay NOT okay NOT okay
7) Smaug is magnificent
8) Thranduil is fakey
9) Why did you split up the dwarves, PJ?
10) Lego Legolas is not okay (this speaks for itself)
11) Beorn not impressive enough
12) Sauron was okay
13) Orcs' designs are not okay
14) Thorin on Smaug's head (*facepalms and facedesks*)
15) Some idiotic scenes and some really good scenes(Spiders, Smaug/Bilbo, Entering the mountain. And the ending was great too)
16) Wonderful effects. Seems you actually were there. Must be seen in 3D! That is one of the reasons I went to see it.
17) Ed Sheeran's song at the end is perfect.
