I’ts not the 3D, I saw the Hobbit in 2D with a really good screen and projector. The CG was still shit.

What surprised me though is that there was actually a lot of extras and actual orc though. I did not expect that.

The Expulsion of the Necromancer from Dol Guldur was, hands down (in my opinion), the BEST part of the entire movie

Actually, I can answer that. Billy Connolly was on set, but he had trouble due to complications with his health (I think someone said Alzheimers somewhere). So, they did his character digitally and had him read and record his lines in a studio.

I just watched the New Hobbit movie, i wasn’t disappointed… but the CGI did kinda got me questioning.

Oh and yes, that Mad Max trailer was wicked!

The stupidest thing about casting everyone in Exodus as white people is that the whole point of that myth is racial division. It’s like if you made an apartheid movie where Nelson Mandela was white.

Azog, the orc villain character, was not made up by PJ. He is a canon character who was killed off much earlier than when the Hobbit films take place, but they didn’t invent him – Tolkien did. One pedantic complaint of mine: as a Tolkien fan, you should know how to pronounce “Smaug” correctly. It’s every Tolkien nerd’s berserk button. Seriously, they say it, like, a thousand times in the film. How do you not get that right? I didn’t mind the CGI as much as the rushed ending. Too many fight scenes, too little wrapping up story lines and… Read more »

I started watching Midnight Screenings once Spill.com went down. I won’t see the full Hobbit review yet because it’s my custom to not if I’m planning on seeing a movie. Speaking of which, I need to find the Penguins of Madagascar review since I’ve seen that now. I thought that the first Hobbit movie had boring and silly parts. I thought that the second one was really good. I’ve never read any Tolkien books. Heck, I was only old enough to see the last Lord of the Rings movie. I’ve NEVER seen the first two. I don’t think that we… Read more »

Okay, I finally saw it. The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies was really good. It was pretty much an action movie with a fairy tale message and script. It was shorter than the other movies. It wasn’t very story driven but the other two movies did that. It was a fitting end to this trilogy. Also, it connected well to the main Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Hey, just thought i’d point out that Azog (the villain from the hobbit you forgot the name of) wasn’t made up for the films
Its just in the source material he died in the battle in the first hobbit where he lost his arm

I watched Linkara’s 3 part review of the comic book adaption. I haven’t read the book, but if the comic he used in the review is as close to the source as it supposedly is, I will agree with him that the movies are better than the source material. I think he’s right in saying that the movie(s) would pass by WAY too fast if it was just one or even two.

Hell, I have friend, she’s 40 years old, tells me that she’s been reading Tolkien’s Middle-Earth saga since she was 14, she’s only just watched the trilogy recently (One after the other), and even she says that the films are way better than the book.
