Went last night to see The Hobbit with my daughters.Great film and we loved it.What do you chaps think?
I've not seen it yet, but hopefully will take Robin next Saturday. What little I have seen of the Dwarfs has had me muttering about lack of facial hair and Thorin being too young, but I moaned about the Lord of the Rings before seeing it and thought it was great. The Games Workshop figures are jolly expensive though!ReplyDelete
Brilliant film !ReplyDelete
Saw the film on Friday and really enjoyed it. I'm not sure about the 48 fps and have never been convinced by 3D but other than that good film.ReplyDelete
The changes to the story by adding elements from the LOTR appendices are good although I would have left Azog until the end; although I can see why.
Interesting, that they have brought in Radagast and I liked the Dol Guldur scenes. Ties things together well.
Will the second film end just after Mirkwood, I think so but time will tell.
On the comment about Dwarves and facial hair, I agree, Thorin is a descent of Durin who was a Longbeard.ReplyDelete
Still it doesn't detract from a good film.
Gamesworkshop figures look fantastic, but I'll be waiting for the unwanted presents on eBay personally.
I saw it yesterday in glorious 2D and I was bowled over by it. I thought the specials effects where stunning, the cast amazing and the over feel brilliant. The only downside is I have to wait another year before I see the second part.ReplyDelete
Haven't seen it yet either, but I agree about the dwarves and their facial hair. I guess the filmmakers were trying to be creative and make each dwarf distinctive?ReplyDelete
(I still don't care for how they portrayed Gimli as bumbling comedic relief in LOTR even though I love the movies overall)
The movie seems to be getting rave reviews. I wasn't sure I could be bothered (though I did enjoy the LOTR movies, especially the first one). But it looks as though I will have to see the the first Hobbit movie.ReplyDelete
Three movies seemed to me a bit of a stretch, though: the book itself isn't long. I gather Peter Jackson originally planned on two, and although (in my view) the story in structured around three parts (linked together by subterranean passages) I can see how two would work.
Sir Peter is a fine film-maker (I do bar selling New Zealand's sovereignty to Warner Bros but that was Tory PM John Key's call), and generally speaking tells a story well (c.f. say, Steven Spielberg, whom I generally avoid).
Possibly facial hair frightens the kiddies. I recall a few years ago, before I removed most of my face furniture, terrifying the hell outta some 3-year-old kid in a public library. He had been bellowing some time before it sunk into my consciousness that loud 'I am upset' noises were emanating from near floor level not far to my right. So I hoiked my nose out of the book I was looking at. There he stood, face beslobbered, eyes awash, yelling fit to lift the roof, transfixrd in utter terror at the huge ancient hairy thing he had chanced upon. His Mum sorted him out, whilst I sidled off down the aisle...
You never know with whiskers.
