Idris Elba makes a stand
Action, villains and more
Universal postpone production in wake of Paul Walker's tragic death
While Martin Freeman’s diminutive burglar may not be cut from the same cloth as most traditional screen heroes, it only serves to make his acts of bravery all the more rousing. Like the moment when he charges to the aid of Thorin, whose about to be beheaded by an Orc after a foolhardy charge against Azog the Defiler.
Drawing his letter-opener of a sword, he runs into a beast three times his size, and in doing so inspires the remainder of the Company to rush in with support. There’s certainly more to Bilbo than his light feet and nimble fingers, as time and again his courage and wits prove to be powerful weapons in their own right.

Frankly, I couldn't give 2 sh/ts if the movie was in 48fps, technicolor or freaking shadow puppets, I just wanted a something to watch and lose myself in. But thanks to the frame rate, everything in the first hour was slightly speeded up, like it was on FWD (x1), it completely ruined the atmosphere. So rather than concentrating on the story, I was too busy wondering if the projectionist had put the movie on the wrong speed. It calmed down after that, but still I felt like I had come into the film a third of the way in. it was an alright movie.

Sounds like the projectionist probably DID put the film on too fast, as the version I saw was perfect speed, and looked absolutely glorious. More 48fps please.

@obzentai @CallumJones - My attempt to launch a new phrase has fallen flat. Amended now.

OMG! You really banged on about 48FPS in this didn't you? Calm down, it's really not that big a deal. I watched it in 2D anyway because I hate glasses over glasses.

my fav moments when bilbo put on the RING in his hand...
Dec 19th 2012, 14:35
I still don't know if i watched it in 48FPS or not, as i'm sure some screenings were just standard - well, i didn't notice anything different anyway. The only thing about the film that irked me a littel as well was that i'd hoped the bit where Bilbo obtains the ring would have had Martin Freeman re-film the bit from the opening segment of Fellowship in the exact same as Ian Holm did it. It was the same director after all, so i was a little disappointed that he made it slightly different.

"Rhosgobel". "[i]Rhosgobel[/i] rabbits."
SiMan, i thought that too, I was looking forward to Bilbo scurrying over to it like at the start of The Fellowship.

Moment #1 - wasn't the 'nut' the bird was cracking a snail?
Anyhoo. I absolutely loved AJ and can't wait for the next film!
I went to see the regular 2D version and it was ace, although I'm not a fan of digital projection. It's too much like watching on a huge TV...

I'm glad Jackson changed the moment of Bilbo finding The Ring. If anything, I'd rather they release a copy of LOTR on blu-ray with an excerpt of Martin Freeman in that scene, but it kind of works if you think of it as Bilbo's memory of the event.

I'm glad somebody else felt like the movie was slightly sped up. Everything else was AMAZING about the 48FPS but it was a bit jarring seeing them move faster than usual.

Gollum's breif glimpse of humanity and fear was beautiful.

The Hobbit, i liked the movie a lot, the best character in this movie was Hobbit, he is so sweet and friendly and nice, oh my god those eyes are amazing, i was really suprised and i couldn't take my eyes off the movie.
Unfortunetly i've been watching it at home through freemovies.getitatzerocost(dot)com it was in HQ quallity so it was okey to watch, i had a really nice evening and it was just an amazing movie, i wish we had more movies like this, so that's my opinion about The Hobbit movie :).
Enjoy watching guys if you haven't yet...
