That is nonsense. Gollum was in the book.

All they did was stray bit a bit from the actual text and use the slightly different "film" Gollum. With more emphasis on the Slinker/Stinker angle.

How can they say that, and defend bringing back Legolas?

Seeing how this trilogy is shaping up, that is easily the most negligible addition. After all, he is Thranduil's son.

The many small nods in the film are more bothersome in their small irksome relentlessness.

I wasn't thinking on writting one. It'd probably just read like a mix of many other reviews.

There are a lot of reviews out there, but there's always room for one more well-written one. Especially of this film.

Contains spoilers if you haven't read the book

Many here thought that the "bromance" between Bilbo and Thorin was a bit overdone.

That in comparison to the book it cemented that relationship far too early.

PJ has a habbit of intensifying the emotions that do appear in Tolkien's books, milking them.

I'm guessing in the second film Bilbo and Thorin will grow really close, and after Bilbo takes the Arkenstone, and sort of switches sides, Thorin will feel more deeply betrayed. Leading to him acting out of pride, leading to his eventual downfall....

It felt far too weird in the film.

During the whole journey, Thorin never smiles, he's always grumpy and grim, and suddenly, at the very end, he's all happy and jolly. WTF?

I'm expecting a twist at the end of the second film, revealing that a Ringwraith took possession of Thorin's body. That would be the only logical explanation (and that would explain the use of the Nazgûl theme as well).

Thorin will be revealed to be the long lost brother of Grishnákh, who will be revealed as the bastard child of Sauron and Galadrial.

The third movie will be about the reconciliation of that ancient unspoken love and the reunion of the family, finally bridging the gap to LOTR in a finale which will see Galadrial throw Sauron's wardrobe contents out the bedroom window after a huge row about her wedding Ring, the fade to black into credits lingering on a foreboding shot of Sauron trudging toward Mordor, heartbroken.
