I'm pretty curious to see it in 48 fps. I wish a theater within 100 miles would be showing it.

I thought that the bunny ride part:

where Radagast tryies to lure the wargs so the dwarfs could hide was prety damm good.

I just couldn't get over how every time he changed direction he was basically leading the Wargs to the dwarves. Or maybe that was Gandalf leading the dwarves to the Wargs so they'd have to go to Rivendell?

So in the trailer they show Bilbo looking at the broken sword. Are they going back to Rivendell in the movies?

Pretty much in a circle around them, yeah. And they just keep running around mindlessly inside.

Original music for that part of the movie:

While I did enjoy it I was more disappointed with it than not, and now I'm wondering how much better it would have been if Guillermo Del Toro had stayed on board. I can't help but think it would have been a lot more enjoyable.

Yeah, it hung on to (or at least reminded you of) enough of the magic to make it fun to watch. Just....disappointing. And a lot of what made it weak was stuff that I can't figure out the intention/rationale.

It definitely would have looked different. I saw a few of his drawings for it in some interview and I was alarmed at the time cos he was imposing a totally different almost ridiculous style to it(the dragon, at least) but upon review I think Jackson was too close to this by far. Some fresh eyes and new ideas would have made these shine in their own right and not just seem like a cynical cash grab.

The whole pacing of it even follows the FOTR template. I'm not sure if this is imply a feeling of familiarity(which would be unneccessary) or that he's just run out of fresh ideas(likely) but it just never ever has that magic Lotr has. And it should. Easily.
