IMAX Digital 3D

Wish it had been HFR

The movie itself was amazing. Just wish the Regal Cinema here had been showing it's IMAX version in HFR. The normal screens are too small to justify paying for, and those paying top dollar for IMAX are the most likely to want the new technology.

This is a great movie, right along the lines of the lord of the rings before it. The 3D action is great. Just got to remember this is one movie of three so it does not really end!

Good, but bad

For those of you that have actually read the book, you will notice a lot of changes. For example, they totally skipped important parts in the book. In addition, there was not enough reliability on the ring in the movie. Finally, in three hours you would expect them to tell the whole story, but they only get to half of the story. Although there are these changes, I would still recomend that you go see it. I mean, if you saw the original you know this one has to be better.

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.

An Edge of Your Seat Experience

Having this movie in 3D was great, especially with the detail IMAX brings out. While the movie wasn't really true to the book as much as I would prefer, as a stand-alone movie I was impressed with the depth of the content. It really cleared up some things where Tolkien left holes. Such as Bilbo earning trust with the dwarves, why he stayed after everything he went throuh, etc. There were quite a few "inside jokes" for those that read the book, and I liked them.
