Movie Review for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in IMAX HFR 3D
This is a spectacular first chapter, that is actually loosely based on the incredible story from Tolkien's beloved first novel. This is how a true fantasy adventure is pieced together, a cinematic galore with great story telling and performances that are on the money from the entire cast. The last moments of this films climax are truly on edge for what is t come next year. I really couldn't care less about the story bloat (material was not in the novel but didn't downside anything), as long as it adds up in the future. This film does Tolkien's first perception of Middle-earth justice. And about the HFR 3D? Well after seeing all the bad reviews for the new 48 Frames Per Second gimmick and seeing a trailer converted into 48 frames, I took that advice and avoided it. But I then discovered the IMAX theater in my area was only playing in HFR 3D, so I decided, it can't be that bad. Well, I don't know what all the critics were talking about, but I ended up falling in deep love withIt.
