Re: Just watched The Hobbit and while it has some flaws the movie is still epic!
Just watched it. Have to say, I'm disappointed! It's hard to explain why, but I'll give it a go. I guess I found it a bit "cartoonish" - people falling down ravines and getting thrown around by trolls without getting hurt - and at times it felt like I was playing a video game. I also don't think the story or "journey telling" was great, it lacked suspense and the sense of a passage of time. It also seemed a bit rushed, with fabricated actions scenes taking the place of the plot and character development that LOTR did so well! You'd never guess that LOTR and this were both directed by the same person. The Hobbit lost the sense of 'reality' that LOTR had, it's more cheap thrills and commercial than epic.
Having said that some bits were great, I really like the say they've developed the necromancer story line!
