Pretty nice movie! Watched it few days ago with my friends. I love that a lot of their shots are so beautiful esp the shots in the beginning.
The movie didnt get as many good reviews as it was expected. The hobbit was given 65% by Roten tomatoes since the whole LOTR trilogy was given more than 90%
Yes, we know, old news.
But the movie is grossly underrated by the "professional" critics. If you look at the overall user rating at places like IMDB or Metacritic, it shows that the average Joe gave it 86%, which is also roughly the same as what they gave Fellowship of the Ring. If there is any movie where you should just ignore the reviews and go see, it is this one.
Finally saw it last night...Great Film...I give it 4 thumbs for Excellent......Peter Jackson has done it again folks...He's a great storyteller and he knows just what to do to keep you glued to the screen...I wont give any of the movie away, but I will say that when the Giant Eagles show up they get the job DONE....
The Eagles of Flight are not to be messed with...Even the Wizards are no match for their Might...
I just return from watching it in 3D (don't know in HD or not). I loved it ! Can wait to seen it again as soon as possible !
In particular I love all the dwarfs. Their story is so moving. And they have each their personality which is a feat right unto itself.
Aidan Turner, yes!
But they have covered him in a fat-suit and ugly make-up?
I added this the "last film" thread earlier, but now I realize my post might have fitted better here. So I hope you don't mind me quoting myself :
I thought the movie was great fun, and that's mostly what I wanted from it. I didn't find it overly long. It's filled with gorgeousness and excitement.The interesting question is whether the 48 FPS "HFR" is good or not. I admit I was skeptical, but given the idea that it's not that different than the evolution of black-and-white to color I felt I should give it a fair shake. If it evolves into something better, good. But if this is a typical look at the format, I hope it's the last film ever made this way.
It doesn't look like film any longer, it looks like video. Over and over again, I recalled television, a gorgeous shot that's rendered cheap and ironically artificial. As a friend said, there's a reason that many people prefer to listen to music on vinyl instead of newer formats. Film is plain-old more beautiful.
I think of films as representations that engage the subjective response of the viewer. Because the subtle sense of representation is diminished by the high frame rate, our rich engagement with the film is diminished too. It's like we are merely witnessing events objectively, instead of participating imaginatively with the film.
If I have another quibble worth mentioning, other than the 48fps, it's the dwarves. Too often they are belching, falling, frizzy and fat, catering to the whimsy of children. In the book, they are heroes first and foremost.

For all sad words of tongue and pen,
The saddest are these, 'It might have been.'
I saw it and thought it was great. I read the book many years ago when I was in High School. I read it for a literature class I took in my Senior year in High School. It was a Science Fiction literature class. I also saw the animated version of the Hobbit that came out many years ago. I'm looking forward to the next 2 Hobbit movies. I just hope they are as good as the first one if not better.
I loved it! It's such an amazing film! I didn't think it was slow at all, at least compared to other Middle Earth films
