One tough Hobbit

Great movie with a cliff hanger insisting on seeing #2 and then #3 I'm certain. Interesting that the crowd at the movie was well over 30 something. Young Bilbo was a hit.

Comparison to High Frame Rate

As expected, Peter Jackson creates a masterpiece. There really aren't any surprises here (other than the plot additions). The Hobbit is rendered with intricate detail and pushes the boundaries of CGI. I'm ready for the next two movies! I reviewed this movie for the HFR 48 fps version and decided to see it again in 24 fps. The Hobbit works SOOOOO much better in 24 fps instead of HFR. The lighting appeared natural, the man made "natural" objects didn't come off as fake, the characters blended into the settings instead of standing out as actors on the set of a play. HFR was good at two things. CGI objects in the foreground came off as pretty realistic. The biggest benefit of HFR was the noticeable reduction in blurriness associated with action sequences and panning across the screen in 3D movies. IMAX 3D is the best way to see The Hobbit. Skip HFR for a more authentic experience.

I hear lots of complaints about time and other dumb things. Bottom line is the movie is entertaining, it's well done, and I simply can't wait for the next one to come out!!! I loved it and despite the long play time, it went very quickly. So much so that the ending really snuck up on you. I plan on going again and I dont' watch movies at the theatres but a few times a year.

Hobbilt- 4 & 1/2 out of 5 stars

Other than being a bit too heavy on battle scenes, this is a terrific adaptation of The Hobbit which expands the story in interesting ways. The eagle rescue makes the 3-D definitely worth the extra $ one pays for this. Excellent casting.
