Well....... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll be honest, I read like 2 paragraphs of your message, way too long for me :D

I'd say however that this is a movie (same for DOS and TABA) that us fans will love for sure.

I see some critics complaining about the silliness, or the two songs by the dwarves (which are great moments for me on the score), others suggesting that they should have gotten rid of some of the dwarves (yeah, right)

I'd say that even when the mixed reviews started coming in, I was still pumped and am more than ever. The latest clips are spectacular, the 13 minute video (today) is unbelievable and seems to make a few lads way more interested in the movie on several forums that I hang out on.

The critics probably find the prologues with the dwarves, the Shire scenes (which are the best for me, seeing the dwarves interacting, character stuff) redundant or boring, I know I'll eat it up and so will many many fans.

Simply the case here of movies with a much lighter tone, more playful (the first one, less for the next two :) ), maybe more adventurous, yet not childish (I disagree with that) where many critics seemed to expect a tone la LOTR, which we all know it's not, but it seems that many critics have never read The HOBBIT.

The HFR 3D, I believe, is also a culprit here for most of the negative reviews, I'd bet that if those guys had seen the movie in 24 fps, they would have liked it better.

When those guys talk of how much it distracted them, no wonder they hate/don't like the movie.

All I can say, I'm psyched to see the movie, in HFR 3D, in its full glory and I will drool all over the place for 2h45!
