Did you notice any (major) inconsistencies between the book and the movie?

I don't know if this is a major inconsistency, but I thought the point-of-view change was interesting. The books are told from the point of view of the hobbits, so it dwells a lot on luxuries. They describe almost every campsite, and what they have for dinner, etc. Obviously, they made the movie an action movie, which loses a lot of the humor that the hobbit POV gave us.

I liked the movie. It looked amazing, even though they changed up the story so they could give Liv Tyler more screen time in the first movie.
