The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

By Kearnymom
Written September 30, 2014
I had read the book and taught the book to 8th graders so I was familiar with the characters and plot. I truly enjoyed the movie from that perspective. If you go see the movie, you must see it in 3D. The special effects are amazing. There are points where the people look like they are actually in the theater. One of my concerns is that younger children will be scared by the brutality of the monsters. Also the scenery and action often reminds me of a video game. When, and it probably will be soon, there is a Hobbit video game children might lose sight of Tolken's message and the essential themes of the literary work.

Masquerade documentary

This is what my feeling about the movie was for most of the time. It does not catch a feeling of a real world but at all times you see it as a setup. I can't recall any movie but cheapest shows and low budget movies to provide such a feeling. I am not going to even mention stupidity of some scenes. I'm not going to object splitting the book into 3 movies. Indeed I would love to have it in three movies with exciting details added in. But it's all turned into a senseless action. As an example let's turn to a scene when the company is forced onto the trees. It's a rare moment even in the book when Gandalf uses his wizardy tricks to put magic fire onto the pine cones. Would the director use the chance? No. In the movie Gandalf uses his staff as a lighter and there is nothing magical about the scene at all. Trolls scene totally lacked original humor too. I'm giving "oh, no!" so you can go and see it for yourselves. A total disappointment for the most of the movie time.

48 Frames per second is amazing!

The best part to this movie for me was the HFR (48 frames per second). The motion was so much smoother. It also made things much sharper in detail. This should be the new standard as a minimum frame rate. Just fantastic. Absolutely the best visual movie experience I've ever had by far. 48 FPS will draw me into a theater every time from here on forward. As far as the movie itself, they certainly put a lot of CGI special effects effort into this one. I'd say more than any of the other Lord of the Rings movies. As usual, this movie would not be suitable for children.
