Yesterday I got to see one of the biggest blockbusters this winter season. The Hobbit which is the prequel to Lord of the Rings trilogy won`t be out for another week. But I was able to catch a screening yesterday in 3D. In addition after the screening, there was a Q&A with Director Peter Jackson, as well as the screenwriter and producer. For the Q&A, I was in the front row, and was able to get a picture with the Director after the Q&A.
As far as the Hobbit, it`s definitely not as grand as the other three movies. It doesn`t have that big epic feel to it, if you know what I`m saying. The backgrounds all look to CGI-ish to me for some reason. All the bright sunny lighting made it look like those old BBC TV shows. Everything just looked a little off to me.
Besides that there are quite a many scenes where nothing happens really. Especially in the beginning. What saves the movie is the more than few action pack scenes like when the group is trying to escape the Goblin stronghold. Lord of the Rings trilogy is three books made into three movies. Where as the Hobbit is one book being stretched into three movies. With that in mind you would think that the Hobbit movie was short, but it`s not. It`s pretty close to three hours itself.
Overall, would I recommend it? Yes, but just don`t expect to be blown away.
