I remember a FOTR review that criticised the Aragorn/Arwen love story [In reply to] Can't Post

as another example of Hollywood's fascination with older man/hot younger women romance. The laughter on TORN was long and loud. Sly

Yes, reviewers with a single agenda can be unintentionally hilarious.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Are you cherry-picking these tolktolk? [In reply to] Can't Post

Or is the stuff you're running into just mostly positive?

I'm just curious, not accusing you of anything, appreciating the links. Smile

Two more... [In reply to] Can't Post

They didn't like the high frame rate, but did like the film.

Still iffy about the high framerate, it was about halfway through the film before my brain adjusted.

Film was amazing nonetheless. It was great seeing some of the LOTR cast reprise their roles, especially Andy Serkis as Gollum!

Do not see THE HOBBIT in 48fps 3D. It makes the film look cheaper than a BBC soap opera.

48fps 3D aside, THE HOBBIT was an enjoyable bit of fun, the score had me feeling feelings, and Martin Freeman was the perfect hobbit.

In the comments he (Brian Duffield) says "I had a lot more positive things to say too, as well as commenting how only THE HOBBIT has any women in creative roles of this year's blockbuster crop."

I'm starting to worry that this will be one of those movies that fans love... [In reply to] Can't Post

...but critics don't appreciate. Whether it's due to a lack of knowledge about the book, or overhype, or expecting it to be just like LotR.

Women [In reply to] Can't Post

Are these reviewers criticizing about lack of women remembering that the screenplay was worked on by two women? And that literally the only female alluded to in the book was Bilbo's mother? Critics can say good or bad things -- it won't affect my journey.

These advance screenings [In reply to] Can't Post

aren't just for fans - most of the people attending them work in the film industry in some capacity or another.

It may just be the nature of Twitter that it's the people who enjoyed the film most who want to tweet about it and share their reactions, but I simply haven't seen any completely negative tweets.

Here's one more reaction from Toronto:

https://twitter.com/ShaneCameBack

The Hobbit was fantastic! Completely unlike the LOTR trilogy in the best way. Framerate takes getting used to, the clarity is unreal.

We can't merge threads [In reply to] Can't Post

and if history teaches us anything, it will be impossible to keep up. If you really want to avoid spoilers, the Hobbit board is not the best place until you see the movie.

Great timing to 'de-lurk!' Now you can join in all the craziness 'in person.'

Enjoy! Smile
