------SPOILER ALERT---------

I LOVED! I actually liked it more than the first to be honest... The only thing a little bit "sketchy" (not sure what other word to use), was the fact that Sauron is revealed so soon. Gandalf didn't know about Sauron until he saw the ring that Bilbo left for Frodo in the first Lord of the Rings....? In the books Gandalf had to go away for yearrrrsssss before he knew the exact origin of the ring and what it meant exactly to the fate of Middle Earth.
so! that's the only qualm I can think of ... :) other than that AMAZING! (could've been put down to only one movie considering the length of the actual book, but props to Peter Jackson for mounting this great feat!)
