The Bilbo & Frodo scene Can't Post

Am I the only one that thinks the scene between Frodo and old Bilbo at the start of the movie is rather... awkward?
I can't pinpoint what it is, but it feels almost... wooden. Maybe not the right word.

I loved the acting in the rest of the movie, but that scene itself feels so weird. Unsure

    yup.. it doesn't help that Bilbo's face has been digitally de-aged (badly) QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Apr 6 2013, 6:58pm

                    The de-aging is most obvious on Balin in the flashback. It looks very creepy // QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Apr 7 2013, 1:24am
