Boring: wasn't the monster of the deep in the film?
My answer is obvious of course: I really missed the Old Forest part. Not just because of Tom Bombadil, but also because I thought it all went too fast in the beginning of the movie. You have the party, then Bilbo leaves, Gandalf leaves, returns the same evening, Frodo must leave immediately (instead of having 30 years in between to live), they head for Bree, and they arrive there shortly afterwards. No Old Forest. :( It didn't seem to make sense in the beginning of the movie...
But also the scenes when the gifts are distributed, when Frodo and Merry catch people in the house, when Lobelia and Otho come to see the will, when Gandalf would 'blast his door right through his hole and out the hill'. It's stuff like that that you miss most. :(
But considering what they've left in, it's still a good film. :)
