I saw it last night...I bought my tickets three weeks before and then had to line up last night. I really don't like standing in line but the movie was worth it.
I feel the same way that I felt right after seeing the first two movies. I liked it, I'm in shock from finally seeing it but I'm torn because so much has changed from the books. I have been a huge fan of the books since I was little and every change that Peter Jackson made is hard to swallow at first.
But, like the other films, I will grow to love it much more as time goes by. I really need to see it a few more times to take it all in. I probably will not see it again for a few months though.
Changes and all...this movie is still very, very good.
If there is anything the nonconformist hates worse than a conformist, it's another nonconformist who doesn't conform to the prevailing standard of nonconformity.
