Re: Just watched The Hobbit and while it has some flaws the movie is still epic!

some of the humour was so cheesy i cringed. "that'll do it" as thorin slashed the fat goblin's tummy, etc.

but i still loved it. i didn't read the book or know any background to the film so i had no idea they were splitting it into 3 parts i was rather surprised when the movie ended on a cliffhanger.

I found it very entertaining throughout, despite the running time I didn't feel bored at any part.
It's not an epic but it's a good movie.

Exactly, there are many parts in all 3 LOTR movies that are a total bore.

perfectly summed up.
i was also very much bothered by the 48 frames per second. after all i read about this topic, i realize that it is pereceived very individually, but the reviewer who wrote that watching "the hobbit" was like "being on the set of the movie instead of having a bigger than life experience" described my feelings very well. it might look "more crisp and real", as jackson describes it, but that is really not an advantage.

Re: Just watched The Hobbit and while it has some flaws the movie is still epic!

Saw it about a week ago.

I thought it was OK. As many have said it felt too long and lots of scenes just didn't need to be there. The whole Frodo/Old Bilbo scene was pointless. The ' rock giants' fight was crap and un-neccassary .

I'm not saying the film was bad, it just didn't blow me away

Re: Just watched The Hobbit and while it has some flaws the movie is still epic!

I saw it last week, and it was much better than I expected. In fact some of the parts I liked the least were due to the book (I think the story would have been better with less than 13 dwarfes, and SPOILER if they didn't always got all saved at the last minute- it kills the suspense after a while). But I liked the direction of Peter Jackson and enjoyed the 48 frames per second.

Looking forward to the next part, a pity that we have to wait for a whole year. And I hope Evangeline gets screen time in that one.

Really? I find that an interesting comment because moments like the Gandalf-Bilbo conversation, Riddles Game make the movie for me, but Jackson's "direction" during scenes such as the chase from Goblin town and the rock giants are hardly what I would call necessary aspects of cinematic adaption and license. Spoiler Also re: the 13 Dwarves surely the suspenseful aspect of having 13 Dwarves is "will any die" as it is the ones we have been groomed to love most are the ones that die at the end.

In any event touches like having all 13 dwarves, the same goofy and absurd trolls, Gandalf wearing a silver scarf as described in the book all make up for the less smooth elements of the adaption that inevitably come with cinematic audience requirements.

Re: Just watched The Hobbit and while it has some flaws the movie is still epic!

Really enjoyed it, and I preferred it to its equivalent in the LOTR saga, Fellowship of the Ring. It had notably more action, and was overall a far more resounding success than I had heard. It was really great to see all the familiar faces again as well as get to know the new ones.

I had no love for the bits that weren't part of the book, I still enjoyed though.

Movie was not great obviously but I really didn't feel like it lasted that long, time passed by pretty fast.
It's true some parts seem like video game and it all looks more like one big fairytale.
Still it's ok movie, I enjoyed it.
