Hobbit, only better!
I was not sure what to think before I went to the theater. I had seen the trailers and thought it might be too comedic; think Snow White's dwarves meet Lord of the Rings, but I was more than pleasently surprised to see the comedic tempered by the quest aspects of the book.
I was blown away by the use of the green screen imagry,( can't rremember the term PGI maybe?) Unbelievable!!!! And of course the scenery in New Zealand again. Oh My!!!
It was terrific to see all our old friends again, Gandalf, Saurumon, Frodo briefly, Galadriel, tho she was not in the book)Elrond( and so many more. all looking, if not younger than in LOTR, at least about the same, which is amazing considering LOTR was over 9 years ago.
I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this movie.
I am not quite sure how they will make 3 movies out of the one book, but I cannot wait to see.
If you read The Hobbit in school or on your own go see it. Battles great as well. Good for kids 10 and up, Grownups too.. It will not disappoint!
