A big hit for fans, average for the general public (Per Altaira: this is now the 7th Review Thread to Rule them All (links to others inside) Can't Post

thats the view im getting

average 3 star reviews coming in. but hey, at least its not a phantom menace!

of course im gonna love every extra 3d frame and second and extra story cos im a huge tolkien fan, and a huge film fan. but in many ways im worried jackson may have done a disservice to the wider audience.

the hobbit is a book nearly everyone loves, yet the confusion seems to be putting people of, i can easily count 10 different ways to watch this film, for a general cinema goer that is not going to sit well at all. combine that with stuff that isnt in the book, i think people like my mum or my sister are gonna be confused by these films, which is a shame. becuase the book is universal.

just my thoughts for today.
