I hated LOTR, the only part I did like was the first hour of the first movie, makes me want to go out and have an adventure. Saw the Hobbitt for the 2nd time yesterday, still get that same feeling from it, love it.

I was really looking forward to the Hobbit but didn't enjoy it as much as I'd have thought I would. I still think it was a really good film but wasn't really the cinematic experience that I was looking for (Life of Pi, did over-deliver when it came to that by the way.)

I'm looking forward to seeing it for a 2nd time but will most likely wait for the DVD before watching it again.

DVD screener is online for people who want to see it.

Wasn't the same as watching it at the cinema, needs the big screen.

Got back from it about an hour or so ago. Here's my pros and cons. (Should be noted I've never watched Two Towers, Return of the King, nor have I read any of the books)

+ Exceptional acting. Not a single dud performance, as far as I can remember.

+ Beautiful art design, as is the case with what Jackson usually oversees.

+ Great cinematography, another trait of Jackson's.

+ Very charming, distinct characters.

+ The very fun first encounter with Bilbo and Gollum.

+ Sebastian the Hedgehog is one of the most adorable things in the history of motion picture. Really hit me harder than anything in the film when he (temporarily) died. That final purr he gave HNNNNGGGGG

+ Ponies.

===================================================================

- Yeah, we get it, he's the "Son of Thráin". We heard you the first five, drawn out times.

- Some of the writing overall is a bit awkward on occasion.

- The development of Bilbo happens far too quickly. Not only does he seem to take the dwarves invading his home and the idea of a journey far too nonchalantly, but his character progression reaches its peak by the end of the movie; essentially going from "Oh shit, I need a handkerchief" to "Oh shit, I need to rescue these horses from carnivorous creatures 5x larger than me", in the span of 10-15mins. By the time he valiantly stands up to the Pale Orc to save Thorin, that's as far as a hero as he can go, as far as I'm concerned. So there's pretty much nothing left to build on his character for the next TWO FILMS.

- ... Furthermore, we really don't see all that much of how Bilbo lives his life in the Shire before the dwarves come into play. We see him smoke a pipe and eat a fish. That's it. It would have been nice to see how and why he feels his life is content, but also perhaps directionless and monotonous in the Shire, so as to provide more motivation for him joining the journey, as well as connection with the audience.

- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jz7rFuZZZc

========================================================

Nevertheless, the whole film left me with a good taste in my mouth, and a desire to see the following entries. Would heavily recommend :3

I think certain people need to grasp the fact that The Lord of The Rings books were very serious and dark, whilst The Hobbit was more of a fun/childrens/adventure book, and that is how it has been transitioned onto the screen.

Fantastic movie, I thought everything was pretty much perfect. Thorin was fantastic, and as someone has said, him charging Azog through the flames was simply wonderful. I love the camaraderie between the dwarves and couldn't help grinning from ear to ear as they all stuck together to help each other out of them situations they were stuck in, such as escaping the goblins in the Misty Mountains and them all charging Azog to back up Thorin and Bilbo, just gives you a good sort of feeling ya know. I loved the scene with the Wargs chasing Radagast and Gandalf, Bilbo and the dwarves running away, but sneaking as well, loved it.

All in all a fantastic film, I really don't understand how people are giving it poor reviews, they either must not have read the book, or they don't understand the difference between the tone of the books.

That's a big problem I think a lot of reviewers had. They were expecting Lord of the Rings 4, not what The Hobbit actually was.

I'd give it a 7/10.
A lot of my issue with the film and indeed the LotR films is that Peter Jackson is an awful director leaving me with the feeling they could of just been so much more. Was he not working with amazing source material, he'd be directing total duds like king kong or those awful early horror films he made.

I just can't help but think there's so many people out there who could do far better jobs....

As for the person who criticised the review saying Jackson's ideas were unoriginal, think before you do so.... It was clearly alluding to the very Potteresque interpretation of Radagast etc

I don't think I've read/heard the Potter interpretation. What is it? Because I think I've completely missed it.

It was a really good movie visually and fun to see but i walked out feeling a little lacking. like its really annoying me because i cant point out anything that wasnt good about it, it just left me wanting a little more i guess. not really sure how to describe it.
