    saw it friday - 3d was cool. I've never read the books or been into Tolkein, so it was a cool story, but the ending SUCKED. Presume there must be a follow up ...

      I thoroughly enjoyed it. Been probably 4 years since I last read the hobbit but I had fun with it. Did they take some big time creative licenses? Yeah, but it didn't bother me.



      Too much CGI? Probably (usually I am a less is more sort of guy when it comes to that) but honestly the Hobbit IS a lot like a Pixar story. Sure, it has dark parts and scary parts and heavy themes, but the whole thing is lighter than the LOTR stuff by far, so it didn't bother me as much.



      I can see people not liking it though it seems like it will be one where you highly enjoyed it or you really disliked it.



      and Hardtail, there's 2 more movies coming to finish the story.

              We're going to see it this afternoon. Hopefully to enjoy as just a movie, rather than having extreme expectations.



              I am not a fan of overused CGI. I thought The Avengers was pretty good. I know why film makers do it, but I'd rather have a live action that isn't quite perfect than made up pixels. Most of the time it doesn't look right to my eyes anyway.



              Daughter says The Hobbit is a little bit of a mish-mash of story lines. And I don't remember the book too much anyway. I suppose I'm looking at it like just some family time together...so, it's all good.

                  I think there was a little too much CGI but I like most of the additions from Tolkien books/appendicies and PJ's take on 'em...I think it was another orc that was supposed to be hunting Thror (Bolg?) but the simplified plot device of 'you killed my father' is probably more appropriate for most audiences?



                  The Hobbit is a much lighter book, in tone and words so there were going to have to be some additions here and there...



                  Falling staircase syndrome.....far to much of this in the Goblin Mines..it bothered me a lot..good call.



                  ..but really, complaining about the dwarf arrival/eating scene...it's almost verbatim from Tolkien..humor and all...a worth opening. Holywood force feeds ustoo many short movies with race to teh action scenes and poor character plays.....the pacing was great.

                          Definitely too much CGI. I didn't enjoy the movie very much but there was at least one great scene (the Bilbo and Gollum one). I liked how Bilbo was beyond killing Gollum but still bitch slapped him with his hairy feet.

                              This is pretty much what I thought. I enjoyed the dinner scene because it reminded me so much of (what I remember of) the books.



                              I didn't like so many parts being practically cut-and-paste from the LotR films - climbing snowy mountains vs climbing mountain giants, Moria vs goblin mines, etc. A number of the set locations also reminded me a ton of LotR and felt a bit recycled - the plains of Rohan looked exactly like the plains that the Warg riders chased the group through.





                              I loved the riddle scene. I thought that part was VERY well done.
