Re: The Hobbit Discussion Thread
I also saw the Hobbit last night, and I must say I only watch long films like these including Star Wars because I am loyal to the products produced in the Movies.As for the Movie itself was awesome, I would of liked a better history of the Dwarfs? Which Dwarfs is Gemini ancestor? Also now remember I seen the movies and read the books except the Hobbit, these same Dwarfs are the same we see skeletons in the Cave in the Fellowship? I love the scene with Frodo and Bilbo just before the story starts, as it's a great day for him, as the fans know later his life would change in the future.Bilbo played by Freeman was prefectly done as you saw the same fear from adventure like Frido, but it was great to see both characters take the risk, knowing this journey would save the world.Funny scene I loved, some people hated it was Biblo and Gollum game or riddles.Crazy to see him get upset like a Child playing a game with someone he didn't know.I wonder why Biblo didn't kill him when he put the Ring on, and had his sword to his throat? He felt sorry for him, maybe thinking he has no friends etc?
I thought at times I feared where's the action, and I kept forgetting that the Dwarfs are crafty fighters, coming to attack when you least expect it.Also I loved the ending, where you see all the Dwarfs with Bilbo, and he says "I think the worse is behind us".I never read the Book but I damn sure know the journey gets worse, and I imagine not all the Dwarfs survive in the end.Overall it was 9.5 outta 10 for me, bring on the second film next Christmas please!
