I first read The Hobbit in 1967 or 1968 and hoped that some day it would be made into a movie worthy of the masterpiece that J.R.R. Tolkien created. The movie was certainly beyond worthy. Martin Freeman is absolutely brilliant as Bilbo, and each and every cast member is fabulous.
I rarely see a movie twice, but have seen this one twice already and hope to go again before it leaves the Imax.

Wonderful prequel to the LOTR trilogy. The 3-D, however, was poorly done and distracted from the cinematics. I found myself looking back and forth between at the characters in the foreground in 3-D and the panoramic vistas in the background in obvious 2-D. I recommend they avoid this in the next two films. I woulld recommend the 2-D version for those who have not seen it yet.

IMAX-3D is always great. The Hobbit is visually beautiful, often funny with many thrilling and exciting sences. If you liked The Lord of the Rings series you will ike The Hobbit. All the actors from the LOTR have returned to the Hobbit making it easy to know the characters. Fun and engaging from beginning to end witj an ending leaving you wanting to see part 2. Don't miss it at the IMAX its a spectical worthy of the format.

So, the movie starts... I laugh many times, I cringe a few times, I get worried for characters many times, I remember parts of the LotR movies at various points, and then the credits start! I was completely involved from start to finish. I did not know I had been sitting for >2.5hours until I looked at my watch after the credits began. What more can you ask from a movie?
So, it's not Tolkien's The Hobbit. It's Peter Jackson's The Hobbit. Unlike the LotR, I was prepared to ignore (as much as possible) any and all changes. Not possible - Azog chasing after Thorin? Sheesh!) - but I was not allowing that to impact my enjoyment of the movie (also unlike LotR).
Casting, sets, art work, acting (mostly... Elrond is a bit better in this. Gandalf is, unfortunately, a bit "rehearsed"), interpretation of many of Tolkien's thoughts, all great!
Just a fantastic piece of work!
