You really do need to read the book, hey did add lots of parts but it worked beautifully. I'm reading the book again since I've watched it and will be doing so again soon enough.

I must say, the first movie was great. I was a little suspicious when I heard they were dragging it out into three movies, like butter scraped over too much bread. Alas, it was more than what I could have hoped for, being in line with the book quite well so far.

One thing I loved about it all is Thorin, and his marvelous acting. Byronic hero.
Radagast's scenes were also cutely comical and light hearted.

Saw the Hobbit, it was good, but not perfect. The first hour especially has its issues, it was a bit slow and stretched out at times. Anyway, overall it is a well made and fun movie. Definitely looking forward to the sequels.

I think the second half made up for it quite well though.

Which parts?

I suppose scenes like the meal at Bilbo's was a little long, but it seemed to set the dwarves' character quite well, including the theme. I freaking love that theme. Ormigerr. One of my favorite soundtracks this year.

I think they're pulling material from another book on Middle Earth (forget what it's called), which is where characters like the Necromancer and Rhadagast the Brown and such come from. At least, that's what my brother-in-law told me when we saw it - I haven't read the book in years.
