Added DiffLines:

* TimeCompressionMontage: A variation. When Bilbo and Gollum are riddling, we only hear one riddle from each of them, and then the camera pans away, and all we see are rocks and the tunnels in the mountain, while we hear a slightly-creepy, sung version of a third riddle, after which we return to the game, and Gollum asks his "Time" riddle. The pan-away and song represent an extended period of time passing while they trade riddles back and forth, only returning once things get interesting again.

* EvilSoundsDeep: ThurlRavenscroft provides the bass in "Goblin Town" and "Fifteen Birds", likely pushing those songs [[NightmareFuel over the edge]]. Then there's Smaug of course and finally the trolls.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: ''Heavily'' inverted with the wood elves, who are described as beautiful in Tolkien's writings, but here are shown as ugly and having green skin. Elrond and his elves remain fair.

* AdaptationDistillation: Generally, the movie does a ''very'' nice job boiling down the novel into a good seventy minute movie, and some of the voicework is absolutely legendary (particularly Orson Bean as Bilbo, Brother Theodore as Gollum, and ''Richard Boone'' as Smaug). The only truly noticeable plot point left out is Beorn, who is totally absent, as well as the Arkenstone and the subplot involving it.

** The film, however, ''compounds'' on this, because it actually makes use of the very vague descriptions Tolkien gave for the elves in ''The Hobbit'' specifically - while Elrond looks very noble, the wood elves are much closer to the original Scandinavian depictions of such creatures, being short, a bit ugly, and having ''blue skin''. Which makes them very different from other depictions of elves in Tolkien's wake!
