The Hobbit Movie

Postby Big Lazy » Sat Dec 15, 2012 9:00 pm

So I went to watch it last night and I'm happy to report is was bloody excellent. I was thinking it might have been a really watered down version of LOTR's but it stood along side the original trilogy nicely. I saw the traditional 2D 24 frames per second version as the new 48 frames version has been panned for being too clear, some saying it looks like day time TV. I didn't wanna go to the 3D showing either even though some have said it looked great in 3D.

The swords on show were of course superb. Nice to see how Glamdring the foe hammer, Sting and Orcrist the goblin cleaver were introduced into the film. I can see Orcrist being a very popular replica indeed.

Now it might just be my pervy mind (if fact it deffo was my pervy mind) but there seemed to be loads of unintentionally suggestive dialogue that totally out shined Star Wars saucy lines. Meaty Mouthful anyone lol.

Do yourselves a favour folks and pop along to your local cinema and check it out.

In the trailer there is the dwarves singing the "Far over the misty mountains cold" verse, but they only sing the first half of verse one then one of the later verses, in the film do they chant the whole thing? Or is that something we can expect to see in an extended version?

Edit: been seeing it now, loved it - tried watching in 2D but the projector broke so we ended up going to another screen and watched it in 3D - not a fan of 3D (looks too dark) so will be going back watching it again in 2D - songs are indeed seriously truncated - but still not bad at all.

And here we are again awaiting the imminent release of Pt2..........can't wait personnally as I thought the first part was total quality throughout. Has the potential, (almost), to outdo LOTR.

Finally got round to watching the extended cut. Its about 20mins longer but dont expect any meaty extra scenes like in Return of the King. Good to watch it again though and the Bluray steelbook is seriously nice.

Here's a link to my boob tube review if anyone fancies listening to talking crap for a few mins lol - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfpLF1rC ... XA&index=2

Cant wait for part 2 - watched the first one in cinema 3 times in the end!

Just finished reading the book too - wanted to brush up on my knowledge before the next two films as i hadn't read it since i was a kid - i had forgotten SO much about the ending - cant wait now.

Curious how the 2nd film is going to handle Beorn's house though - the book very clearly depicts animals (mainly dogs) waiting on the Dwarves, carrying trays whilst walking on their hind legs & so on - no idea how Jackson is going to portray this without it looking stupid - but i hope he doesn't just miss it out.

Btw Larny, saw your Steelbook review on Facebook a few weeks ago - i was going to wait and buy all three extended editions as a set; but do you reckon the Steelbook versions will still be available in 2 years time?

I would say no, and if they are they'll be very VERY expensive. Some steelbooks are worth a small fortune these days. Rambo for example has an asking price around £500. Most I've ever spent is £67 on a german version of Suckerpunch. It is totally gorgeous it must be said. My only gripe with steelbooks is you have to handle them so carefully. The slightest scrape will take the paint clean off some of them and they're so easy to dent if you're heavy handed.
