I wear glasses as well, and my eye condition means I can't detect 3D, so it makes it easy for me. Never have to over-pay for 3D, which most people say isn't worth the extra $$$.
Kili… I have to admit, he was portrayed pretty well. Still, I'd never heard of that actor before 'The Hobbit' came out.
I didn't see it in 48fps as the cinema didn't support it - missing any visual 8th wonder of the world?
love LOTR, and I really enjoyed The Hobbit. big fan of the books also, so I for one am glad they went into a decent amount of depth - but the first 45 mins in Bag End with the dwarves was just far too drawn out in comparison to the rest.
And the use of the white orc (azog), whilst it makes sense because it's a film and needs villains, was seriously average/needless imo. overall great though, looking forward to part 2
The frame rate didn't do particularly much for me. Felt no more dynamic than LOTR.
Yeah, I love all the films and books. Gosh, it's been nearly nine years since I read 'The Hobbit'. They added in a fair amount of additional content, and it blended nicely with the stuff that came straight out of the book. Nothing wrong with that aspect, but I felt the timing was all wrong like you say. I thought the beginning and end were too stretched out. And the middle, before they got to Rivendell, was too rushed. I appreciate their effort to add in a short-term antagonist and the Pale Orc was a fair one, IMO. I imagine he'll be killed off pretty quickly in the next part to make way for the actual villain of the story.
Looking forward to the next part where we will find out more about this Necromancer, hopefully.
Do I have to watch LOTR to understand the Hobbit? Would like to see the Hobbit but got NO time for LOTR films, just utter trash in my eyes.
This is classic Peter Jackson-LOTR style cinema. If you don't like LOTR, you won't like 'The Hobbit'.
