I've seen the Hobbit twice now so I guess I really liked it.
I see no problem with the lighter, humorous tone appearing at times, the book always did have a lighter tone than the rest of Tolkien's work. It was meant to be a children's story right? But the comical death of the Goblin King
went too far for me I'll admit.
No, it's not a straight adaptation of the book and I don't see why people were even expecting that (Jackson's LOTR trilogy wasn't either).
An important thing to remember though - we are all evaluating this movie as a singular movie right now, but really it's just one third of a movie.
