The Hobbit
« on: January 07, 2013, 05:41:40 AM »

So The Hobbit came out recently on December 14th, 2012.

In this thread, let us all discuss about it. =D

In my opinion, I thought it was awesome! I can't wait for the next two parts of the movie. I really want to watch it again. :3

Here's my take on it:
They pretty much went through half the book in the movie. Now coming up in part two, they're either going to finish the rest of the book in two parts OR what I'm hoping/hoping not, putting other books of Tolkein in the trilogy, like the necromancer and what not.

I'm not sure, but either way, it's going to be awesome. <3

They've already put non-Hobbit books in Part 1, so I can guarantee Part 2 and 3 will be the same way. Not being entirely made up of The Hobbit.

*SLIGHT SPOILER WARNING*
Movie-wise, it's awesome. Great acting, great special effects, and an excellent job creating unique characters for each dwarf.

Book-faithfulness-wise, it's terrible. Azog really did die from his wounds, it took hundreds of years for the Necromancer to gain power, and Radagast never showed up or was even mentioned. (Azog too, for that matter.)

BUT WHO CARES ABOUT FAITHFULNESS TO THE BOOK?! IT WAS AWESOME!!
I am extremely excited for The Desolation of Smaug.

EDIT:

Most of that stuff was taken from the appendices. It really happened, it just wasn't mentioned in any of the books.

I keep forgetting to take a picture of the 59th Street station that's plastered with ads for the movie. I'm not sure if it's still up but I'll get a picture of it if it is.

Yeah the movie was awesome XD I just don't really get a lot of the complaints for it...

^Frankenweenie was much better in my opinion. As far as non-animated films go, though, The Dark Knight Rises and The Hobbit were both a lot of fun. Among the films I've seen, I'd say Life of Pi was my favorite of the year.

The movie was pretty good. Having not read the book I can't speak to the accuracy but it didn't seem to have any plot holes or anything :/ The ending through me off though. It felt just like Bourne Legacy-- "Wait. That was it? That was an awful place to leave off."

Definitely agree on Slow's comment about Life of Pi. Not only was it true to the book, it also had some sweet computer animation (an entire tiger? wuuut).

Anyhow, voted "good but too long"--it should have had more things from the book rather than all the extra stuff. Just my opinion--seemed like it didn't fit quite as well. I really enjoyed the movie though. Saw it twice (though admittedly the second time was just because a girl asked me to).

There's going to be two more parts to it coming out. It's going to be awesomeee with Smaug, Thorin and everything. I thought the movie and book were good in their own way. =D Awesome music too!

I did buy the soundtrack, it's good (albeit pretty much exactly the Lord of the Rings soundtrack with the Misty Mountains theme in it).

Yeah, I was a little disappointed with the soundtrack, since I was hoping for more non-recycled material from LOTR.

I like the theme that represents the ring--usually performed on strings.
