 Rings!

I read the book and loved it. The Hobbit is my favorite series, and I love Thorin quest. I walked away from the film feeling Peter Jackson relied a little to heavy on using computer graphics. I felt every other character wasn't real but based on some computer imagery. I also feel the barrel scene was cringe worthy-it was a moment Peter Jackson should have went with the book.
Now that being said, I think Richard Armtage is brilliant!! He is an actor and a stage actor that brings his presence on screen. I believe he dominated the movie and tied it together.
Orlando Bloom, really? why why did he feel the need to bring him into a the mix?
All-in-all I am really looking forward to the 3rd movie. I cannot wait.
