Some of the dwarves looked patently ridiculous, a thing I hated about Jackson's slapstick treatment of Pippin and Merry early in FoTR. Also, and this is clearly nitpicking, the Rankin Bass treatment of Far over misty mountains cold is, IMO, just plain superior to the funeral dirge in the trailer. Why would you moan out "the trees like torches blazed with light" like that? they "BLAAAAZED with light!" as Gandalf bellows in the haunting Rankin Bass rendition. I think Jackson is just trying too hard to distance himself from former efforts.

But anyway a must see… can't wait.
