It's not The Lord of the Rings, but I'll take it. ;)
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

Good but definitely could have been better, too much ridiculousness and the escape from the goblin caves got a bit boring.

Too true, but then it was intended to be a kid's book, and they aren't supposed to be saving the world a la LOTR, so I can let it slide.

That wasn't what made it boring, the boring was the running away scene where it was stupidly unrealistic. Also would have been nice if they had more of the songs from the book, I loved the scene where the dwarfs put plates and stuff away.

anyone else think the goblin who gollum eats was rather scary?

Sad at the lack of the ridiculous elf songs from Imladris certainly.

Radagast was done well in terms of character, still not sure about his transport.

Most annoying point? Gandalf asks Elrond if he still reads old dwarfish

1) It's Dwarven, or Khuzdul, not "Dwarfish"
2) There is only one form, as set out by Durin
3) Of course he can't bloody read it, the Dwarf language is secret
4) The moon-runes are elvish.

How the hell did Radagast get from wherever he was east of the Anduin all the way west of Imladris with his stupid rabbit go-cart in like two days??

I love the way Bret McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords has a speaking part in the hobbit as the elf 'Lindir' ... when he plays another elf in LOTR who was fan-named 'Figwit' and he's going to be in the next two movies also! Maybe he's trying to be in every movie...jealous much!!

Plus there's this flight of the Conchords song
