This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   All of the dwarves had cloaks and hats when they showed up at Bilbo's hats on the first night. The book clearly describes this part, and says how all the dwarves greeted Bilbo, hung up their cloaks and hats on the hook, and came in. Most of the dwarves don't have hats, and they don't greet him like the book describes. Some of them don't have proper cloaks.
   We do not find out how Gollum lost the ring. Gollum fights with a goblin. The ring flies from him pocket and lands on the ground.
   Bilbo sees a group of trolls and decides to sneak up on them so he can pickpocket them. He goes after the goblins because they have stolen the ponies for food and he wants to save them.
   Thorin is hostile and petty toward Bilbo. He personally doesn't believe Bilbo is cut out for the journey. He is always mocking his life back in the shire. They have several verbal battles.
   Bilbo is frightened by the Eagles. They speak to him and tell him that it is perfect day to fly. The eagles don't speak, and Bilbo mounts the back of the eagle and flys it.
