Tauriel/Legolas. I suppose I can accept the need for action but the whole love triangle stuff with Kili? I just don't see the need at all.
Beorn. Why remove the story that Gandalf told him to get all the dwarves into his house? I don't see what it could have detracted from the movie. If it was a time issue then remove five minutes of the ridiculous barrel riding/battle and add it in. I always felt that crafty bit of thinking by Gandalf was as cool as the riddle contest with bilbo and gollum. Besides that, Beorn being as temperamental as he was, to come home and find a house full of sleeping dwarves would have mean a whole bunch of dead sleeping dwarves. You don't just walk into someone's house and hit the rack.
Yes, this! Again, that part with Beorn seemed rushed to me. Overall a great movie, IMO. But I would have preferred that they spend more time with Beorn as well as in Mirkwood.
I haven't seen a beatin' like that since somebody stuck a banana in my pants and turned a monkey loose.
