    Every extended version is about 20-40 minutes longer than the normal version.

    For me, I loved how he was portrayed in the movie ... It wasn't so much the corruption of the Ring, but the Approval of his father which he desired above all else. He saw bringing The Ring back as a way to gain his fathers respect. So in essence he still was resistant to the power of the ring, but he couldn't resist that chance to gain favor in his father's eyes by bringing back the Ring. The Faramir part always gave me chills, because it made me realise that the Ring has power beyond just that of 'simple corruption', even if someone is completely resistant to it's 'evil power', there are other ways the Ring can still corrupt people.

    But of course everyone looks at things differently, and I can respect people having certain dislikes with certain parts of LOTR, or any film for that matter.

    I sure as hell did, but I actually found that I preferred 'Blunt the Knives' (Of course they were both fucking amazing though), purely because the transition into the song was just seamless, whereas Misty Mountains they kind of had to put that transition in on purpose. When Bofur said, 'Oh you hear that lads? He says we'll blunt the knives' ... And then the song starts it was just fucking perfect.

    Seen the movie 3 times now, definitely would not going back to 24FPS, If I went to watch another time it would be nice to see it in Non-3D 48FPS, purely for comparison purposes. But alas, the movie is just beautiful and I so can't wait for Movies 2 and 3. Plus GIVE ME THE EXTENDED EDITION!!!!

    Edit: Also don't know if anyone else agreed, but I loved both Bofur's character and the actor. He got most of the lines out of all the Dwarves apart from Thorin, I loved the Actors Accent and he was such a cool character.

    I went and saw this yesterday, wanted to see it opening day in Aus but stupid Christmas stuff kept me from doing so and I fucking loved it, I have always been iffy about movies that were originally books but peter jackson did an outstanding job, it actually really annoys me that we have to wait a whole year for movie 2 and then another for the third but hands down best movie I've seen this year and I can't wait to pick up the EE.

    Just on a side note, have they got a soundtrack out for the movie? Every piece was amazing and gave me chills.

    Actually that makes sense. If PJ had said that instead of the other I would have felt way better about it. But yes desire for his father's approval and how he had always been the less favored son (partially due to his thinking nature and friendship with Gandalf) was something that was made clear in the books as well. Either way the scene when he ride back out to Osgiliath was heartbreakingly well done.

    Personally, outside of the lonely mountain scene, the dwarves singing that song was the best part of the movie for me.
    Sir Robin, the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot.
    Who had nearly fought the Dragon of Angnor.
    Who had almost stood up to the vicious Chicken of Bristol.
    And who had personally wet himself, at the Battle of Badon Hill.

    Beautiful, perfect movie. Picked up a copy of the soundtrack (Howard Shore is a master!)

    This one is my favourite, had it on repeat for the last several hours!

    well.... that was interesting.

    just went to go and see it, film started at 12:15 , i got there a little late just before 12:15, and the guy at the counter said i was the only person who has turned up to watch it, he gave me 3d ticket for half price (£6 instead of £12) and a free bag of sweets with my coke i brought there, and then when i went inside he said i could sit on the premium seats (really comfortable!!) at the back as no one else was here. i was actually the only person in the entire cinema watching it. was good, like my own private cinema. i would go to the early viewing again. when i left there was another showing of it about to start, and it was packed, they were queueing up outside the door, all i could think was suckers!!

    anyhow, amazing film!!the only bit i didn't really like was the ogres, i think they made them a bit too silly, sounded more like they belong in a kids cartoon than this. and at the end could the eagles have dropped the dwarves off in anymore of an inconvienent location? there on top of a tall rock with no path down! loved golum, he actually sounded totally insane at times, a complete lunatic. loved the film, cant wait for part 2!!

    They were exactly like that in the book.

    The Hobbit is a kids cartoon.

    From what I've heard the rock that they got dropped off on is explained a lot more in the books and we might know more about it in the next film.

    I kinda like the Highway trolls. Pretty close to how i imagined them (Tolkiens drawings looks abit different - but i think he would be pleased with Wetas trolls tbh).
    The Eagles didnt so much rescue the dwarfs to help them as to piss of the varges and orcs wich they hate. They are not friendly animals. They brought the party to the Lord of Eagles nest because he wants to speak with Gandalf.

    i know the trolls are suppose to be stupid, i just dont think they fit with the rest of the film, but apart from that it was excellent.

    Most likely.

    Because we never saw Bilbo viewing the shards of Narsil while in Rivendell, like he did in the trailer. And it doesn't make sense for that scene to be put into another movie.
