 Rings!

Did not enjoy it in the theater due to the 3d plus 48. Just too much! maybe i am just getting too old. enjoyed the movie much more watching in a more traditional format.

Liked the movie a bunch, but could have used a lot less of Legolas jumping around. The barrel chase was fun but just a bit too much. Loved the Dragon, but didn't care too much for the dwarves vs dragon fight scenes. It was cool, but could have been done better. Bilbo and Smaug chat was terrific!

Did enjoy the new elf character despite the silliness of the dwarf elf "romance" of sorts. Again, it was okay but could have been done better.

some of it felt rushed. What about Thrain? Mirkwood went by too quickly and the Beorn...what happened?

Sauron and Dol Gulder was neat. Did enjoy the mage battle between light and darkness. Was hoping for the whole white council, but I guess will have to wait for the next movie for that scene.

Very excited for extended version!
