I was about to say nothing from the film is an improvment on the books, but you reminded me of the singing. The over-description doesn't bother me, given what Tolkien went through in life I wont begrudge him describing some magical land and it's quite possible that, without the descriptiveness, the films might not look as good.

The stuff with Tom bombadile wasn't even put the in the movie for a reason!
i like the fact that the versions are a little different this way you can get a different experience reading and watching.
but most definetly i skip the singing in the books.

The book had a lot of parts where my eyes kind of just glazed over. Tolkien's a good writer, but, imo he's too much of a world builder. The books are good but I do prefer the movies.
