    Sorry guys, missed the time change. I showed up at 12:30 and went to the 12:45 non-3D one. When no one was there I thought maybe something might have changed, but wasn't going to miss the flick! What did you all think?

      I am so so sorry you didn't see the time change! We really wanted to see the HFR version(which I thought was visually kind of weird), and I wanted to buy tickets online this morning and noticed it had changed. I'm glad you got to see it anyway. I enjoyed it, though it felt different than the LotR movies. It did go by fast for me, I was worried it would feel long but it didn't. John thought there was a bit of a slapstick feeling to some of it, I agree that there was definitely more silliness to this one. I liked it, but not sure they really need to make a trilogy. Even 2 long movies might be more than enough.

      It's ok. I actually didn't want to see it in 3D, so I guess it worked out well. I loved it! I enjoyed the comic relief in it also as it lightened the mood. LOTR got very heavy as the trio progressed. I hope they keep the bits of humor throughout. I didn't think it felt long at all, but then again I never cared how long these movies are. It's a world I'm never anxious to leave. I have the extended cuts of the LOTR movies, and have watched all three in one day (when I had the time lol). I know many are annoyed at the three movies decision, but I don't mind so much. Not sure if it's necessary since I never read the book, but I'm excited for the rest. Jackson may not be the best director, and I will agree that he doesn't know when to leave things on the editing room floor, but I give him credit for fleshing out Middle Earth so thoroughly.
