Re: Look, you know, our draws are not rigged they are just unlikely. (pt3)

I went to see The Hobbit today. It was good, it made me want to rewatch LOTR, guy in my avatar made me fancy a dwarf for the first time ever... but around the 2 hour mark I thought this installment should be winding down, but then it went for another 45 minutes.... so it felt drawn out.

All in all... I give it a 7.5/10

Now go and see it twice more like I have.

I bet then you wouldn't even give it a 3.

I'm sick of it myself.

I couldn't do it two more times. I saw it in 3D today too which I hate because wearing 3D glasses over my real glasses is just annoying

Re: Look, you know, our draws are not rigged they are just unlikely. (pt3)

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

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.

Hmmm well if you're not into LOTR I'm not sure if you would even like the Hobbit, but you'd be able to understand it

I just took the Jeopardy Online Contestant Test and absolutely nailed it I have taken it many many times, but I definitely feel the best about this one



I have wanted to be on Jeopardy since I was a young girl.

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.

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.

This is classic Peter Jackson-LOTR style cinema. If you don't like LOTR, you won't like 'The Hobbit'.
