Thank you [In reply to] Can't Post

I very much enjoyed this thread. Thank you.

I most liked the flashback to the past. I didn't mind the prologue, but Bilbo chewing on his pipe was kind of magical. Everything in Bag End was wonderful, though the dull the knives song kind of took me out of the film because I didn't understand how they could improvise a song like that.

The morning after was engaging. I liked the pause before the plunge feeling of the scene.

The trolls were well-rendered.

Radagast was the most memorable character in the film. My son and I talked about him about as much as any. The bird poop was such a great way to make it clear he doesn't think like the rest of us; despite the fact that makeup effect is much maligned, it is one of my favorite touches. The sled ride was another moment that took me out of the film because it didn't make much sense to me, but I recovered relatively quickly at the last homely house.

The stone giants were awe-inspiring. I could have done without the leg-clinging, but it was worth it for a chance to see the giants in action.

I loved the great goblin, especially his little jig and ditty.

Riddles in the Dark. Masterful.

Azog kind of took me out of the film a little at the end because I was wondering how he caught up so fast. I'm sure there was a way; it just didn't come to me quickly enough to take me out. However, I liked how Bilbo's spider moment was moved forward to give us his arc.

I hope I didn't throw in any negativity. It was kind of hard for me to just skim over the parts that didn't work for me. Overall, AUJ was splendid.
