This is a bad review, really bad. It’s a good thing I don’t take these things seriously lmao
I really enjoy reading these types of things, I like to see the bad with the good. This, if you can ignore all the hating on Peter Jackson, is really interesting to read and offers an insight into how others perceived “The Hobbit” and The LOTR trilogy.
Let’s make wishes on Gandalf’s fireworks and go crazy in the Green Dragon!
Love you all and I hope 2013 is perfect for all of you, you deserve nothing less!

I’ve heard rumors of people being disappointed by the somewhat slow pace of the movie and though I must admit it is slow paced due to the sheer amount of dialogue it still keeps up a good enough pace so that you don’t get bored of any tedium that may arise.
The action scenes (though not very plentiful) are amazing, typical Peter Jackson style. Beautiful and thrilling, the action scenes are very short but still very exciting.
The humor is well timed and not overly-cheesy (which is a pet hate of mine), and the overhead action scenes are beyond beautiful, it really reminds you of the beauty of Middle Earth we first saw in LotR.
I really need to write a paragraph complimenting all of the dwarves. The actors who play them are amazing and, although this is Bilbo’s story and it should be about him, they are the ones that really carried this movie and made it as exciting and funny as it was.
On to the character of Bilbo, I loved Bilbo in the books but in the movie I’m sorry to say he got on my nerves a bit. Not because of his unadventurous nature but because of his slow reactions to everything around him. It seemed a bit like the filmmakers were trying to make us sympathize with poor Bilbo who’s so far from home but they ended up laying it on too thick and in the end made Bilbo one of the most annoying characters in the movie. That being said, I really warmed up to Bilbo near the end of the movie when he started to find his feet a bit.
Gandalf, he’s a legend. He, along with the dwarves, made this movie and I’m so glad he got as much screen time as he did because his presence alone was enough to make you excited to see what’ll happen next.
I saw the movie in 48 fps even though I’ve heard horror stories, I found no issues with this frame rate but at the same time it didn’t seem to add to the movie experience at all. The 3D alone (which was amazing!) was more than enough to make it a memorable experience so it really isn’t needed.
This movie was amazing, I didn’t go into theatre expecting another LOTR because anyone who’s a fan knows not to compare LOTR to The Hobbit.
The Hobbit is a lot more fun, jolly and light than some of the LOTR scenes (but Gollum is still the scariest thing I’ve ever seen) and as long as people don’t make the mistake of expecting something like LOTR then they won’t be disappointed.
