Just got back from a second viewing [In reply to] Can't Post

I mention it at all because the guy I went with hasn't seen any of Jackson's Middle-earth movies nor has he read any Tolkien. Its not in protest or anything he just hasn't gotten around to it.

I asked him if he was able to make sense of what was happening and if he liked it. He said he liked it well enough, that it works as a stand alone movie except for the cliff-hanger (he thought it ended rather abruptly).

Anyway, I've seen it twice (not an option in your poll).

I'll try to find a time next week, but my son's schedule is tight, and so is mine. We'll see.

Seen it once [In reply to] Can't Post

And am not really prepared to sit through it again anytime soon. Perhaps when the DVD comes out.

Saw it for the second time this week [In reply to] Can't Post

and liked it a whole lot better than the first time, probably because I knew what to expect, and what not to expect. Will try to catch it again before it leaves the theatres, which doesn't seem to be any time soon.

I've seen it three times so far... [In reply to] Can't Post

all in 3D (I don't usually view the 2D version until it changes theaters, and that might be a while, since it's still pretty busy). The first time in the new HFR 3D, and the other two times in regular RealD 3D. Unfortunately, I won't get to see it a fourth time until next weekend (since the kid's are going to be back in school next week, there will be no more daily matinees, and I don't have a vehicle to go to an evening show. If I did, I would probably go on a Tuesday, since it's cheap night). I may cave and go this weekend (I haven't decided yet), since I can't seem to get enough of Thorin.Smile

DOS [In reply to] Can't Post

I've seen it once in RealD 3D and that will be it for me. The movie was ''OK'' I mean as an entity of it's own, apart from the book. I plan to give it a second viewing and catch up the appendices when it is released in DVD in a few months.

Doubtless most people here have seen it. We are all fans of the imaginary world of Tolkien after all. A movie based on it stirrs curiosity. Smile

But hey, even if you don't get to see it in theater, that's not the end of the world. I never saw the LOTR trilogy in theater. I am catching up with The Hobbit though.

I saw it just the once [In reply to] Can't Post

Entertaining enough on its own terms I suppose, but not a particularly good film or adaption IMO.

I will probably buy/rent the EE when it comes out, but at this point my feelings on The Hobbit Trilogy are indifferent at best, so I'm not really in any hurry to see it again.

Haven't seen it [In reply to] Can't Post

And won't go to the theater for it, so I'm waiting for a DVD or online option. I only enjoyed parts of AUJ and am certain I'll want a fast-forward ability to skip through parts of DOS.

That's enough. I'll see it again a time or two when the Blu-ray comes out, then again when the EE comes out, maybe more if it's more substantial than the AUJ EE was.

These movies just aren't the classics that i can't wait to watch over and over like the LotR films were, and are.

You know, I really am not a fan of going to the theatre anymore... [In reply to] Can't Post

I just might wait till TABA comes out on blu-ray to see it. Unless it's tons better than DoS, I may only watch it in the comfort of my home.
Patty Jr. hates when I say this. He feels like I should be so much of a fan that I go see it in the theater asap. I guess he hasn't heard of NARF. I told him a real fan would want to see the movie in optimal conditions. For me, that means at home.

...but there's also a lot to be said for the overwhelming presence of Smaug on a big screen.

There is, you are right. [In reply to] Can't Post

The Middle-earth movies are the reason I have gotten bigger TVs since Fellowship came out on disc.

I did see DoS in the theater, mostly because I wanted to see what HFR looked like. I've seen it now (and loved it !) and I saw the dragon. Now I'll have to be content seeing him on a 65 inch screen.
