Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

It just means it’s expensive.

Well, it is, just that Peter Jackson added extra details… It’s made in 2 movies instead of just one I believe.  But seen it, I have not.

That is one reason I never go to see films made from books that I love.  They always change them.  I have worn out 2 copies of LOTR, have yet to see the films.

A true fan smile I like perter’s interpretation, but the books are wonderful on their own! I remember in primary school we had this really cool teacher who loved the Hobbit. He’d read it to us in class chapter by chapter in the last half hour before home time. He also loved art, and is a big reason why I got into art.

Something the TV commercial trailers fail to mention is, it’s 3 movies.

3x ‘The Hobbit’ films?!? I was under the impression it was 2 filmed back to back (Similarly to the production of LOTR).

Yeah, saw it yesterday.  About 45 ;minutes into it I realized that Bilbo still hadn’t gotten out of his home.  I said to myself “Self, they aren’t going to have much time to have an adventure before the movie’s over.  Bummer!”  Then at about the 2 and a half hour mark I realized that I’d heard that it had been split into a trilogy.  So they had lots of time to have an adventure.

A lot more animation in this one than in LOTR.

The extras added by Peter Jackson are actually helpful and tie the timelines of the two stories together for the non-Tolkien-geeks.  It’s been a long time since I read “The Hobbit” but all the essentials are in the movie.  There may have been places where Jackson embellished a bit but it was still a fun movie and it’s only 1/3 over.

Unfortunately I bought a ticket to the wrong theater and saw it in 2D instead of 3D.  Gotta go back today or tomorrow to see it in 3D (24 frame/sec).  But I’d have to go about 120 miles to see in 3D (48 frames/sec) as it was meant to be seen.

I’m sooo confused…  I’ve come to grasp a little of the nature of reality and the answer to life, the universe, and everything.  I even have an inkling as to who and what I am. Auuummmmm…
But please, please, who the hell are you?  And why are you trampling my roses?

As someone who’s both read the books and seen the movies, I adore the Lord of the Rings trilogy. They certainly do change a few things, but it’s still pretty faithful and well worth adding to your collection.

...unlike the “Golden Compass”. I was soo hyped for that movie (based on the Northern Lights book) but alas it fell flat largely due to budget restraints, getting one of the main characters hair the wrong colour and outright nuking large chunks of the plot. Pretty sad really considering it was Dakota Blue Richards’ debut and her performance is easily the only good thing about the entire film.

But I digress. Not seen the Hobbit yet, but I certainly plan to when I’m not tied up.

It has a few nice bits, it helps if you did not read the book, it’s awfull really, kind of hate all the characters, Jackson made a slasher slapstick out of a child book, sick peace of trash realy…

9 for the Silmarillion? it would be more like 39… did you ever see that book.

I was jazzed to hear they were making The Hobbit, bummed to hear it will be 3 parts… I hate waiting 2 years between episodes… I have a terrible memory, it always loses impact… like when someone is telling you a story or filling you in on something important and then they go off to use the restroom, get a snack… answer the phone and two hours later they come back to finish the story and I can barely remember who they are, let alone who said what to who or why the giant panda was on a unicycle…
3 parts for the Hobbit, I hear, because jackson is adding stuff not really in the book, but mentioned or alluded to in the LOTR…
But it will clear up nagging issues like where Gollum got that nasty rash and why Aragon parts his hair as such…
