Also, the visuals don't have as many
moments as LOTR, as the scenery is way less diverse and interesting (so far) but when those moments do happen they are just as amazing
First of all, you are comparing the first part of the Hobbit to the collection as a whole with the LOTR's trilogy.
The beginning was longer yes, but if you read the book you would remember they are sticking closer to it than the did with the LOTR.
My biggest gripe with LOTR's was they left out 90% of the book.
In the Hobbit they are keeping everything so far, and adding to give a little more substance. I had goosebumps when they kept the songs in.
They key to enjoying these movies is to remember he wrote the Hobbit first. He wrote them for his kids, as they got older and matured he wrote the LOTR to better suit them.
As far as the "
", you went in expecting to be amazed. In LOTR you were not expecting it. Also, they were rushing to meet the deadline. They were still rendering graphics 1 week before the New Zealand opening. They're are getting to the better parts of the book in the next film. You will see more of Smaug and in the final movie they will have the battle of the five armies. Which will rock!
