I'm guessing you're relatively new here GA - don't fall for directorscut's usual tactics is my advice.

I read someone comment about this somewhere else and I think they may a point in suggesting that this may not be Smaug. If memory serves, Smaug is Golden Red isn't he? That dragon looks black. This may just be from a prologue or flashback, just showing the existence of dragons in general in Middle Earth.

Or I could be way off... and it's just Smaug

Embargo appears to have been lifted a day early and the reviews are staring to pile in on Rotten Tomatoes. Currently on 82%.

Reaction seems to be as I expected on the whole. Seems like a mostly positive reaction but many (justifiably I should guess) are saying it's too long and takes a long while to get going.

But for the most part, seems to be getting the kind of reaction so far that I would have thought. At the end of the day this simply is not tLotR, so anyone who expected it to be quite on that extraordinary level was always in for a little bit of disappointment.

Exactly, from when I first herad about the hobbit and then the 3 film plan I thought it would be a more slower paced film with a lot of it taking place in the shire. Tbh, one of the things i love about fellowship of the ring is spending time in the shire so if i can lose myself for about 30-40 minutes in the shire at the beginning of the film then great.

sounds like its shaping up to be The Phantom Hobbit!!...with the similar 'padding' problems of Kong

be ironic if these prequels end up being lambasted and Jackson is vilified Lucas style...but the SW sequels come out and are amazing (a complete about face of the SW prequels/LOTRs)

Phantom Hobbit seems very over exaggerated. The problems seem to be that it's a bit overlong and perhaps there's not enough material to justify the run-time. And some dodgy CGI at times, other than that the film seems to be getting praise all round. Hardly the fuck-up Phantom Menace was.

Aint it cool

They still going

Don't think I'd place too much emphasis on their opinion.

Just don't expect the moon on a stick and I think we'll be fine with The Hobbit. On a fundamental level, the source material is just light years ahead of anything Lucas could ever dream up

yeah, i read somewhere that someone said the hobbits biggest problem is LOTR. The fact that it's the prequel to a film series commonly hailed in the greatest films of all time, the film simply being very good still makes it inferior to LOTR and most likely in the eyes of crazy fanboys it automatically becomes a 'shit film' because of that fact. It would be interesting to see if the hobbit would be getting the same reviews if it were the first films to be released and not LOTR

So I had a quick glance at the reviews, and many seem to say to watch it first at 24 fps and then go again to watch it at 48 fps. I was going to do this anyway

Anyone know when the Empire review is up?

So, just be clear, there's 5 versions right? 2D, 3D, IMAX 3D, HFR 3D and HFR IMAX 3D? Just so I know how many times to watch it, you understand

On a sensible note: Odeon have expanded their screens with HFR 3D showings - including Leicester Square (phew) Also they've added Swiss Cottage to the HFR IMAX 3D list - I am sort of tempted - but Swiss Cottage isn't a "proper" IMAX screen is it?

No. None of them are proper IMAX screens except the BFI one at Waterloo. Think there are only 6 proper IMAX screens in the UK. Rest are digital IMAX screens, some of which are almost the same size are regular screens.

The BFI are screening it from a 15perf 70mm reel. So while not at 48fps, it should look great... and big! Think the recent IMAX screenings of Skyfall were from a reel like that and it looked incredible.

Thanks, that what I thought. I'm not sure I can cope with 3 hours in the BFI IMAX seats - not much legroom (unless you're a Dwarf)

I do wonder if some sections of the media would love to create a Lucas-type narrative round Jackson - that (now deleted) comment in one online newspaper review comparing Radagast to Binks seemed fairly dubious.

I'll be watching 2D 24fps, just for the record. The last thing I want when I'm watching a movie is to be reminded I'm watching a movie.
I remember seeing Public Enemies and thinking it looked appalling, I thought there was something wrong with the projector.

I'm all for improving quality, but Jackson seems to have missed the point - he says it's like Vinyl V Cd. Yes Peter, Vinyl remains the best way of listening to music, whereas CD is a digital simulation of that. And so I remain committed to the best way of watching films. I also disagree with him when he says the public should decide. The public will take what they are given. It's the industry's responsibility to provide them with the best possible experience.

Rather than saying it's a better format, we should be embracing these new formats as alternatives specific to certain types of films. I believe film presentation will branch off into different types for different kinds of movies, rather than one format surpassing others. In fact, whenever I hear a director championing a new format, I just see dollar signs in their eyes (eg. Cameron).

Eh it's a film it should look like a film, not a cheap digital TV effort. Real celluloid quality. It stinks of gimmick as badly as 3D.

Great entertainment all around. Had to see it in 48fps, as it was the emptiest showing, make of that
what you will. It felt like watching a silent film at times and at others the effect was almost non existent.
The best it looked was any time there was slow motion, azanulbizar or the Thorin/Azog moment near the end.
It somehow made 3D look even more pop-up bookish.

I'm off to see this tomorrow. I can't wait! It's been a long time coming.

People on here won't be able to tell based on my posts on this forum, but The Lord Of The Rings movies are actually my favourite trilogy of all time. (Yes... even better than that other trilogy I've spent so much time on this forum talking about).
