To rate this film i felt i had to center it [In reply to] Can't Post

on a particular or two, so i chose the character development of Bilbo, and then the amount of heart exhibited throughout the film.

I grew to love Bilbo from the time he went bounding through the shire wildly carrying the map in tow. Some say that Thorin appears to take center stage, but then it seems many are drawn to the buzz of the forthright ego and not the quiet reflection of one or two others, Bilbo for one and Balin also. Look to the role of Sam in the lotr's with his depth of humility and suddenly we can see Bilbo with more depth. The 'get the job done' side of Bilbo is emerging quietly without fanfare but really shines at the end with the confrontation with the pale orc. We can see (as Thorin comes to see) that the 'styles' of personality demeanor are coming to compliment each other.

For the matter of heart, there is much to say for the members of this wild bunch and their concern for each other. In the end they are tight when things get tight where all are willing to risk everything regarding the welfare of all.

The detractions for me are the Indiana Jones and the Harry Potter elements. They work well in their own elements but detract too much in TH.

I do not know if the returning actors performances so far are redeeming enough. Something just does not feel quite right, although i love seeing all of them again.

Howard Shore's music is growing on me but did not impact me like the lotr's scores which drew me into the film like a moth to flame.

I do like the grand scale element of a film as long as the 'chemistry' of the acting is there. It is that which most deeply influences everything else in the film. If it isn't there working in real finesse and heart, nothing else will work to add the that needed substance to a film that draws the watcher in with 'a deep caring attitude' i will say.
So to not delay longer i will humbly value it at a 8.5. I am sure it could change one way or the other with time, and seeing the balance of the films. That is how i come to see it presently.
