No more 3D for me
The Hobbit is a great movie. If you like the LOTR trilogy then the Hobbit delivers exactly what you want - another 2:40 immersed in Middle Earth with all your favorite sets, characters, and story lines. Like LOTR itself, The Hobbit is not told in the same order as the book is read, but is ordered more chronologically for the bigger picture. Unlike LOTR, The Hobbit goes beyond the story, stretching it a bit and maybe even changing it. Maybe this was more for the producers who want three more full-length films, but not bad if you're a true LOTR junky and will never get enough.
What I didn't appreciate was the 3D technology. The 3D doesn't add as much as the lack of quality takes away. I'd rather see my screens in focus, thank you. There were some scenes (like the tossing and cleaning of plates) that seemed designed entirely for the 3D affect, and this detracted from the story as well as the movie.
So I like the movie but see it in 2D!
