Glad to hear people like the HFR 3D [In reply to] Can't Post

I've been worried about it, but it sounds like once you get used to it, it's pretty good. I plan to see it for myself, but their reviews are encouraging.

Uh-oh [In reply to] Can't Post

This doesn't sound positive:

"[The Hobbit] is ... something you shouldn't really be seeing."

No uh oh [In reply to] Can't Post

This be the quote thou naughty person...

The new 3D format "did feel a bit voyeuristic at first but once you get used to how crystal clear it is, I think it is quite amazing. It is arresting when you first see it. It is almost like something you shouldn't really be seeing it. It's cool," he said.

You have to read between the lines ; ) [In reply to] Can't Post

Look at the words that this person used! "Arresting." Who wants to get arrested? Watching The Hobbit is like being in prison, obviously!

Obviously people were only allowed to say positive things about The Hobbit and this reviewer was trying to tell us the truth while veiling his words behind something that sounds positive.

I would suspect because of the embargo [In reply to] Can't Post

People can't be quoted on the spoilers or whatever, but the general positive buzz bodes well for the plot.

OK everyone look at this!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0903624/

look at the score from 3000+ users!!!


I know a solid score must take about 50000+ user reviews. Of course the score can down from 9.3 but I think in worse case the solid score is about 7.9 - 8 that is still good enough for me.

Well, isn't that hint enough that the majority of votes are fake? ;) [In reply to] Can't Post

There's no way 3000+ people have watched it. It's fans giving 10s for their favorites, hence not very conclusive.

This happens with every big movie [In reply to] Can't Post

and is in no way a reflection of the average which will take time - especially as hardly anyone has seen it.

Its just fanboys posting 10/10 as they cant bare the thought of another film having a higher score than the hobbit.

I think it will settle to anywhere from 7.5-9.0 - basically an incredibly high score.

Some more opinions [In reply to] Can't Post

Kassandros, I can't tell if you are joking or not?

The Guardian have rounded up some tweets here:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/...-reviews?intcmp=239-

Someone called Davidlen commenting in the Guardian also had this to say:

I can help,I was at the premiere and the first Hobbit is bloody amazing. Wait and be amazed, I was, blown away, Spectacular, awe inspiring, magnificent film making. Oscars in this one.

Incidentally the score is also right up there. The blending of music and movie is top notch.

The people quoted in the original thread below have also added some extra comments. @CarterNixon adds:

I am not giving away any particulars. Staying vague until it opens but I dug it. A lot.

yeah everyone seemed to have loved it. Great atmosphere in theatre. It's a lot of fun.

Daniel, I can't see the Tweet now, but one of these people answered a question about the ending by just saying After the eagles.

And haters as well? [In reply to] Can't Post

And 125 people gave it 1/10. Really, I don't know why IMDb has enabled the votes this early... I don't care about the fake votes myself but there are people out there who decide what to watch according to those scores. If it's too high they may leave the theatre disappointed because it wasn't a masterpiece in their opinion. The hype is really high already so I don't know if they should see it score around 9.5 as well. Wink Then again, if it's too low they might not even see it.

Well, IMDB pages are created, run, and edited by the IMDB community. [In reply to] Can't Post

That is to say, they're run by fans who've heard news/rumors/etc. about whatever movie they're interested in, not by the filmmakers or anyone associated with the production. As a result, basically all the info posted on there is hear-say and rumors until somebody from the production (most likely an intern) is sent in to verify with IMDB that they are the metaphorical horse' mouth. After that, they go into the page and make sure everything's in order.

This usually isn't done until right before the film opens or even after it opens. So, chances are we won't be getting more accurate info from IMDB for at least two more weeks, if that.*

*And even then, I'm sure somebody will be able to hack into the page and toy around with it. Just wait and see how long it is until a troll like Martin Freeman's name to Morgan Freeman's profile.

This quote is encouraging: [In reply to] Can't Post

"I don't know if it was so advanced or if it was so old, that's how I would describe it. It was just gorgeous"

From this quote I get the impression that the film still has the atmosphere of antiquity that was seen in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. I can't wait to see it!
