AUJ - More Likeable in Extended? Can't Post

Greetings, fellow Tolkien fans. I rather enjoyed AUJ as much as the next hobbit, but I also recognize where a lot of fan criticism comes from. I try my best to look past a lot of the things that folks commonly cite as being a downside - the CGI, Radagast, Azog, etc.

I loved the movie as a whole, but I suppose my point is: do you think that the Extended Edition will flesh out a lot of this more and make the film a lot more understandable and likeable for some fans? More time will be spent on this or that so that some scenes don't seem so out of place, or the film will sit better overall?

I was not a huge Tolkien fanatic as I am now when the LotR trilogy came out, so I don't have a point of reference to compare the theatrical to extended editions of that trilogy. Thoughts?
