This is exactly what I wanted to see when they turned The Hobbit into a movie -- I didn't know it at the time, but I know it now.
The casting was perfect. I had no problem at all with the inserted scenes -- it gave me more of Middle-Earth and I could have sat there for another hour and not minded.

This was my second time seeing the Hobbit:AUJ. First time I saw it was in 3-D awesome, this past time I saw it was regular, and I will see it again. I have seen all the Hobbit movies and I am there biggest fan!

Ok, I'm a FAN and perhaps thats why I loved this movie. The part that all the "critics" hated, the first 30 minutes, was PERFECT. It was obviously made for FANS and THANK YOU PJ, you did it right. From the first "Good Day" scene to the talking Trolls, the parts that stayed true to the books were AMAZING. The parts PJ added or borrowed were pretty good to, bravo! People who hate the first part of the movie dont get the book. The book has a quirky english humor to it that is very charming, and the movie pulled that off brilliantly. I died laughing that Ian Mckellan actually pulled off the GOLF joke. Its a pretty long winded JOKE, and he did it perfectly! The only sad part is how the critics are SO PREDICTABLE its sickening. They are bending over backwards to critisize this piece of work, dispite it being a far braver an adaptation then the LOTR. Come on, a scene with singing Goblins that actually works isn't creative, unique enough for you? Grow some courage!

This movie was definitely a good one - the acting, script, costumes, sets, digital art, and make-up were all superb. The few changes they made to the original plot were interesting, added to the drama, and kept me interested for the entire 3 hours! I will definitely see it again before it leaves theaters.

Enjoyed the movie. Excited to see some returning characters especially Gandalf. Acting was great. Was surprised by some of the humorous additions but feel it didn't take away too much from the film. Definitely recommend for others to see.
