    *** LOVED THAT MOVIE.

    I Simply can't wait for the Next one. I actually expected to get Borded by it, AND BOY DID THAT FAIL. I never felt bored, watching the Movie.
    It's sad that i have to wait until 2013 (They released the Others with a Year between?) to see the Next one. BAH.
    I NEVER TOUGHT DWARFS WERE SO BADASS. BADASS. THEY'RE BADASS...IF YOU DIDEN'T GET IT. BADASS.

    If you're gonna watch it. Don't watch it on 3D.
    3D for Action Scenes
    2D for Detalied Scenes.

    What's your toughts?

    Wait, they're splitting the Hobbit into more than one film?

    I can't decide whether I'm happy about that or not. I guess 3 films means they'll be able to be more detailed, and stay more true to the book, but at the same time it seems like a money making scheme.

    After the neglect of Tom Bombadil I can't help being a little wary of Peter Jackson.

    It's 2 parts, not 3. And...

    And...

    And............

    OH MY GOD THIS MOVIE IS SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I literally cried at the start, when "The Hobbit" title appeared, and every time a scene of the shire appeared, and the classic Shire music sounded, oh my god. I managed to calm myself during the rest of the movie, but it's fricken awesome.

    Here, cry a little, imagine the shire, and listen to this:

    Yeah, I just did some research. It's going to be 3. I'm seeing it tomorrow night also. Celebrating the completion of yet another insane semester. Taking my last final exam tomorrow morning.

    Not really excited about it. I'm a huge fan of the books but I hated Jackson's films.

    Right, went in there with reasonable but high expectations and was tiny bit let down. It's far too long.. Feels padded in places and the dialogue is a bit slow and disjointed at times from supporting cast.

    Was disappointed at the times Jackson gets off by needlessly including lotr character cameos and references, it made it seem more like a prequel to lotr rather than the separate story of bilbo.

    Good film overall though, action scenes were well done and as expected performances by mckellen and freeman were very good, there are noticeable differences at times to the book, but poetic license I feel is always necessary in adaptations

    Need to see this movie. I have read the books and I can say I don't expect the movie to be exactly like the book I haven't seen a movie that has ever gone the exact way the book has.

    The Hobbit is the Prequel of LOTR. Well, technically LOTR is the sequel of The Hobbit.

    Prequel to me means that it was made after what comes story wise after it. Also while the world is the same and shares some characters, the stories are almost unrelated

    Didn't understand you

    Prequel means that it's before the events we are talking about, and explains it in some way. Yeah they're kind of unrelated, but it's before the LOTR events.

    I went into the Hobbit with very high expectations but came out fairly disappointed. I have no problems with the casting of actors. i was actually very pleased with the addition of the wattson from the show sherlock playing the young bilbo baggins in my opinion he was the highlight of the movie. What i hated about the movie was the fact that it just looked and felt way to kiddie. Although the book was ment for children i thought peter jackson would darken it a bit to match with his previous triliogy. i also hated the fact that all the orcs and goblins were animated i liked them alot better when they were people in costume..it just made them look more realistic. They also added things that didnt need to be there for example characters like saruman, radagast, and the elf lady didnt need to be there. i do hope the new movies will be better but it's looking pretty grim to me.

    sorry for the long rant just a big lord of the rings fan

    peace bro, poliwrath out

    I disagree poliwrath, the hobbit at the moment is being reduced to fan service a bit for lotr, I think the kiddiness helps keep it's individuality, and btw radagast is a part of the hobbit story, so he did need to be in there. Agreed on saruman and galadriel though

    I agree with the cgi, the orcs and goblins etc just aren't real enough, having extras upon extras as orcs was incredible in lotr, and having gollum as the standout worked very well, but I guess Jackson wanted a more dreamy and fantasy feel with this compared to the grittiness of lotr, hence why he's favouring mokap over makeup

    Well it is lighter because the intended audience of The Hobbit was kids, however, I think the humor let the movie reach out to a much wider audience. I love the book and the movie for what they are. If I wanted to see the same things that happened in the book I'd simply read it again. When I watch a movie adaptation I actually want the director to put their own spin on things otherwise it's almost boring (not saying it always works out but it can). I am very content with the new characters mainly because it seems to be flowing nicely as a trilogy.

    For the lord of the rings jackson didn't have to strech out the story he actually had to compress it quite a bit. With the hobbit he has to add things because there is just not enough in the books to make his three movies. Don't get me wrong i did enjoy this movie but throughout it it felt broken and fragmented..it's hard to explain what i mean.. i think in this situation it would have been better as two movies

    Just got back from the film. I really enjoyed it. I just read the book for the first time a year or so ago. I've read LotR a bunch of times, but I'd never read the Hobbit before. I thought they followed the book pretty closely. As I've seen some of you say, I felt the addition of the couple of blatant LotR film references were a bit unnecessary, like the scenes with Frodo and old Bilbo in the beginning, but aside from that I found all the additions to be pretty appropriate. The only other thing I really noticed that wasn't in the books was
    Spoiler:
    the white orc. The big one that was written as Balin's nemesis. I thought it was pretty fitting though. If you consider that a lot of those danger scenes in the book are a bit disjointed and nonsensical, like the wolves suddenly chasing the company without much rhyme or reason. I felt like the addition of a controlling enemy motivating their attacks made it all a bit more seamless. You have to remember that when Tolkien wrote the Hobbit he was not only learning how to write, but also pioneering the genre. There wasn't really fantasy like this before he started writing it.
    I highly recommend it though. Really liked it a lot, and definitely will be seeing part 2

    Forgot to post in this thread after I saw the movie. Oh well.

    I'm a little sad that I'm going to have to wait to see the rest of the hobbit movie. Though I did actually like everything in it. I do wish the orcs were actually played by actual people and not CG. I also hated the fact that I had to sit through the 3d version it did look nice at times but to be honest I could have cared less.
