The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 3D
Overall, I really enjoy the Hobbit series, and I enjoy the characters very much. However, this movie was slow in many places, and there are far too many grand, epic battle scenes. You really get anesthetized to the massive grandeur of the ground assaults, as well as the little individual battles in this almost three hour movie. It started to get really monotonous about half-way into the movie, and people could miss whole scenes going to the bathroom or getting popcorn. When they came back, you could just tell them that they missed another battle scene, and they were caught up. The acting is good, and I enjoyed the more light-hearted character developing scenes during the first part of the movie. Additionally, the 3D is cool and I liked the trolls, stone giants, and my favorite was the pale orc. So, it's worth seeing, but you might want to just wait for the DVD, and watch it in segments.
