it just gets better... Can't Post

We have,in our house now,seen the hobbit a fair few times since purchasing it on blue-ray a couple of weeks ago...and it just gets better and better.I don't know what it is,I may have to come back with another post with my reasons but it just imroves with more viewings.
Now I understand that some will still decry it as inferior to LOTR and I can see where these people are coming from.rings always felt like high art in a way,where the hobbit is more just a cracking movie made from a great tale,a ripping yarn,if you will.
But arguments about that aside,it is a gift that keeps giving.the music just keeps unvieling more and more genius.the acting stands so much scrutiny it continues to impress and inspire,and if there has ever been a more fantastic character than Barry humphries' great goblin ,I can't think of one! His delivery of the '...perhaps you know of whom I speak....a pale orc...astride a white warg...!' Line,is just jaw dropping and raises the hairs on my arm every time.
Is anyone else getting more out of it with further viewings? I do hope so :-)

Arrow....black arrow,I have saved you to the last.you have never failed me and always I have recovered you.I had you from my father and he from old.if ever you came from the forges of the true king under the mountain,go now and speed well
