    Yes. Saruman makes a small appearance and radagast has a few bigger scenes.

    Edit: I personally loved the 48 fps. It was awkward for the first 5 minutes maybe but then I got used to it. Movements and camera pans seemed a lot smoother.

    This might have already been asked, but anyways, i plan to watch it in IMAX 3D (3rd largest screen in Europe, yay!) and I'm just wondering, what's the 3D like? Is it any better than usual because of the 48 fps (and I'm given to understand that it's 48 because that somehow is supposed to enhance 3D or something)? Also, is the image in general better because of the 48 fps?

    Actually, it was possible to see it the 11th of December here in Sweden (at least in the city I live in). I saw it yesterday around 13:30 and that was more than 12 hours ago (right now it's around 10:29 here).

    STAHP .. YOU'RE MAKING ME SO JEALOUS ALL OF YOU .. STAHP :P

    Well I've read over posts and tried to avoid any posts with spoilers (Thanks heaps to those that made it evident there would be spoilers in their posts or used the tags - Which was basically everyone). Everyone here was really good with giving a quick description before going into their 'review' as well so I was able to just read your reaction in that note and gather the gist without having to read anything that might have had some minor/major spoiler.

    I regret my brief moments of doubts I had at times, I should have known that the reviewers were just not going to have the same opinions as TRUE LOTR fans, and thankyou all for officially confirming that! Now I'm just super super super super super super super super super super super super Excited but SO MAD that I have another 12 days till it comes out I've officially stopped listening to the soundtrack and I'm swaying clear of any Videos/Trailers or anything just so everything will hopefully be a bit more fresh when I enter the Cinema! So glad I'm going to the 3 sessions over 2 days now

    6 hours to go till my showing!

    very excited!

    I've noticed that literally all the negative reviews so far on Rottentomatoes.com are from newspapers with vile reviewer histories. And two less known net-reviewers that have no interest of mine.

    I can't wait to see this. I'm going to indulge myself in it completely. Unfortunately got to wait till the weekend because of work/plans/friends being free then. Sigh.

    One of the biggest complaints I'm hearing is it's on for too long. The funny thing is a lot of the biggest complaints about LOTR was there wasn't enough of the original story, it had to be butchered to fit into a trilogy. There's just no pleasing some people :P

    3D worked out really well. It was subtle and not blown into your eyes like a gimmick. Instead it was used to convey the atmoshpere, which it did really well.
    Comparisation could easily be made with the pre-movie commercials which simply just abused the whole thing again and again.

    Got tickets today by the gf(my bday today and all yay), bless her, will have to wait till the 20th though, but at least it's something!
    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    Well, the main issue with the too long thing is that Hobbit is really thin book. The entire audiobook version of it only lasts for a bit over 3 hours while LotR is about 60-80 hours long.

    Personally I think the first movie of Hobbit worked really well as they managed to add pretty much everything of the book 'til the moment of end along with some nice appendix content and cameos (and some unecessary subplot, looking at you Azog).

    But even now the first movie took already first two thirds of the book and I wonder how thin it will get in the two other movies if they want the Hobbit storyline to go along the entire trilogy. Even with appendixes it seems a bit too "extended" right now.

    We'll see.

    I remember watching the Fellowship of the Ring and at the end of the movie the family in front of us stood up and said "that's it? Where's the rest of it?". Apparently they never expected this to be a trilogy so they were very disappointed.

    So you're right, there will always be people complaining. It happened with the original trilogy so it will happen now as well.
    Personally I don't see how something like LOTR or the Hobbit can be fit into a 1,5 hour movie. There's simply too much to make it all fit. It would be horrible.

    As soon as Mark Hughes (Forbes Review) made that statement about how he thinks the reviewers were 'Bandwagoning' because they were the same reviewers that relished the glorious length and sweeping nature shots and pointless talking scenes etc, I was completely sold on his review and theory.

    Like sure, each LOTR book separately was bigger then The Hobbit, but PJ could have condensed those movies even further. He specifically added tons of slo-mo Frodo dying shots, Glorious Landscapes, Conversations and songs that were in reality unnecessary. It's one of the aspects of LOTR which I enjoy so much, the fact that it's not just some brainless hollywood movie, with action sequence after action sequence. There was substance and he added in so many scenes which in theory weren't necessary, but just made the movie so much better.

    So frankly it's disturbing that these reviewers can say how wonderful LOTR was and how great the pacing was, and then trash all over The Hobbit for being to drawn out. To me it just sounds like they had a vendetta against the whole 'Small book into 3 movies' thing before walking into the Cinema, and had already pre-made up their mind and couldn't properly enjoy it.

    I liked Azog a lot, he was good at keeping the road interesting to travel. He also looked and were really cool.

    But 3 hours of audiobook? Whaat? I remember having it on audiobook, and it was 10 hours long or so. What kind of speedreader manages it in 3 hours?
    Are you sure it's not abridged? Looked around the web, I see versions on 3 hours, but I also see versions on 10-11 hours. Could it be versions that only reads the part the film covers?

    I don't really have opinion on Azog per say, just found the whole subplot totally unecessary. From how I see it, having the orc chase right after troll scene, which was pretty much right after the battle of Moria bit made the whole thing feel a bit too packed. And then in the end having the goblins of the mountain chase the group to the trees (Like in the book) would've worked just as well. + I didn't really like how they mixed the Nazgul song inbetween for the duel

    As for the audiobook, the one I have is 3 hours 40 minutes and it includes fairly lax pacing and even some musical bits on the backround. How does one spread it over 10-11 hours? By reading one word per minute?
