    I saw the NYTimes review, said it was too long, (close to 3 hours) and is part one of a trilogy. Didn't think there was that much to the Hobbit to make three long films out of it.

    I went to see (dragged rather, not my cup of tea) every Lord of the Rings movie at the theater and fell asleep at all three. So, I won't be going to see the Hobbit...My brother took his kids to it this weekend and they all enjoyed it, though...my guess if you are a LOTR/Peter Jackson fan, you can't go wrong.

    Really? I want to like it because I did like the LOTR trilogy, and Martin Freeman was great in the Office and Ali G in Da House. It just looks.....boring. I might wait until it's out on DVD.......

    It's not boring at all. Have you read the book? I read it in HS but still remembered quite a bit. Tons of cool scenes and CGI is so much better than LOTR (which is something like 10 years old now!).

    Some people think the frame-rate of the movie is too fast (it's 48fps, double the regular) but I think this is the future of filmmaking.

    Anyway, I went with 3 friends and we all loved it.

    Plus the 20 minutes of ads and previews, plan the whole day. Is this the one about a midget?

    While Entertainment Weekly gave it a B+ (their movie reviews are not to be trusted IMO), I have also heard the reviews are only fair.
    I heard a complaint about the frame rate. How does it look different? I heard on one hand that it's more realistic.

    2:46, I think.

    I'll see it in a couple weeks after the crowds die down a bit.

    A consistant gripe through most of the criticism is that it spends too much time fleshing out the larger mythology which belongs to the 'Lord of the Rings' books and loses the momentum of the story it's supposed to be telling.

    the theatre near my place is showing it in IMAX in bit frame rates - im going to the 48fps for sure it should look amazing

    I don't remember the last time I saw a movie in theaters probably the first Iron Man

    That's because going to the theater sucks. I like the idea of going to the theater, but when you actually get there your shoes stick to the floor from ju ju bees, and then the fucks in front of you are talking or texting...... Plus, what if you have to fart?????
