But then again, the LOTR rings weren't true to the book either and they were good movies so you never know.
I have strong hopes in this movie from a cinematographic perspective, from the atmosphere given by filters to the professional camerawork you would never think of. I expect nothing but the best acting and editing as the first three films featured. Personally, my personal favorite movie in the franchise would have been the unrelated Hobbit cartoon movie not many people seemed to enjoy.
I enjoyed the singing, I enjoyed how much of a badass motherfucker Smaug was; he just wasn't a dragon, he was more of a gigantic malicious human with wings. And I enjoyed the implied atmosphere of everything. You could tell orcs were trouble by looking at them, they were tanks of a monster. And then you could tell the orcs were about to cause serious shit, by the music slowly changing. And then there comes Gandalf with the eagles, the artistic tones (background, music, ect.) slowly lighten up.
I saw the 1977 cartoon movie, I saw all three LOTR films, and I have no idea what to expect. I suspect they will change the story on some parts, probably leave behind some things, and that it won't follow suit of the 1977 movie. But I can always hope. The first three LOTR films weren't fully true to the book either.
