Re: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Blu-ray Review

This one was good, but certainly not great, in my opinion. I'm going to watch it again later this afternoon to see if it's better the second time around, and the wife will be watching this time, so we'll see what she thinks of it. Oh, and I watched in 3D the first time, but today it will be 2D (wife gets nauseated by 3D).

Thanks for the review, Mike!

Re: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Blu-ray Review

i enjoyed this movie but didnt think the 3D added to it. maybe it was too subtle. there was more depth to the scenes but not as much separation of depth as there could be imo. being filmed in 3D, i expected more. The Avengers had more enjoyable 3D and i think that was done post production. Picture quality and audio is top notch though. still a really good movie and i look forward to the next one.

Thanks for the great review Mike. Even though it didn't score really high (with a lot of reviewers) we still have it on our list for watching.

Ray


Happy Listening!!! Listen with an open mind and heart!!!

Re: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Blu-ray Review

As an avid LOTR series reader (5 times), I alway start with the Hobbit.

Watching them milk out this relatively short novel to three movies makes me ill.

No Smaug untill a tease at the end? Arrrrrghhhh.

I do admit napping and missing the troll scene so I'll give it 6-8 more tries before final judgement.

I really enjoyed this movie... But I really went I to it without judgement, just looking for a small escape. It's really tough for some of these series to live up to their lofty expectations, IMO.

Agreed Todd. I never expected the movies to even come close to the books for me. With that, I was completely tickled when the LOTR movies did a pretty good job of sticking to the story - as well as pulling dialogue from the book word for word in certain spots.

And, I see it as a plus that I get to spend just that much more time (3 movies as compared to 1) in Middle Earth!

Overall I liked the movie but it started off really slow. I did like the scenes in middle earth. Curious to see what happens with the second act.

Re: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Blu-ray Review

My wife and I saw it the other night on my 7.1 projector system. It looked spectacular. My wife felt that it played up the violence too much. I also felt that the fight with the goblins (as well as the flight) was a bit over the top. It almost reminded me of the flight from the mines of Moria in LOTR. In the book, other than Gandalph killing the Goblin King, it was mostly just escaping and not fighting.

I still thoroughly enjoyed the movie and I will wind up with both the extended edition (when all 3 movies are out) and the movie editions.

Re: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Blu-ray Review

Absolutely flawless movie , phenomenal 100/100 3d effects are amazing. Peter Jackson rarely has bad movies, king Kong being his worse. Great actors, amazing animations I cannot wait until the second hobbit movie.
