Those bits should have been rubbish but I enjoyed them. The spiders creeping over his house were nice and creepy and set-up part 2 nicely.
@yegon A hell of a lot of padding but I really enjoyed it. Off to see it again over the Christmas break (I fell asleep during part of the Shire scenes - full of a cold).
I thought the inclusion of Sly McCoy as Radagast the Brown was brilliant.
The Goblin King was a bit of a disappointment for me.
Looking forward to the next part!
Pretty sure it'll start to grate on a 2nd viewing so soon though.
1st viewing had to contend with my recollection of the book and also getting used to 'younger' Frodo.
