your favorite additions/changes Can't Post

So what are your favorite things (new scenes, altered scenes, changes to characters' personalities, etc.) about the movie that weren't in the book?

here are some of mine:

-Bofur's personality. I still think it's kind of random that they chose Bofur out of all of the dwarves to turn into a more fleshed out character. I think he had literally one line in the book. But I'm really glad they did what they did.

-Bofur and Bilbo's conversation in the cave.

-Bilbo stalling the trolls instead of Gandalf. Even when I first read the book, I never really liked the whole thing with Gandalf imitating their voices. I'm not really sure why, but it just didn't work for me. I had a feeling they'd change it in the movie, and I'm glad that they did.

-The opening scene with Frodo. Yeah, it was unnecessary, but I loved it.

-The way the riddle game started. Gollum hearing Bilbo say "game" then getting all excited is one of my favorite moments in the movie, and I like how Bilbo takes control of the situation a little more than he did in the book, while still keeping Gollum as a threat.
