Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in 3D Movie Reviews
User reviews on Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in 3D
First of all, I agree, that the price of a single 3D movie ticket is a bit exorbitant. $20 a pop? For a family of four that means it easily costs $100 to go to the movies once you get 3D tickets and all the concession goodies you want...in this economy?? Anyway, my kids begged me (I mean BEGGED) so my hubby and I relented and we took the kids. It was worth every penny, I'm happy to say, since the movie is super amazing and I think probably better than The Lord of the Rings movies that everyone loves and adores. Peter Jackson is the best fantasy director in the world and he really deserves credit for making awesome movies like no one else. I think every frame is bursting with love for Tolkien and the stories and it makes you want to not just see the next two movies, but it makes you want to reread the stories. I wish the whole team a shelf full of Oscars!
I am a huge fan of “The Lord of the Rings” and I have been waiting for “The Hobbit” for such a long time. I never understood why Jackson did not make “The Hobbit” first because it is the first book and that is where the story of the ring begins. Anyway, it is finally here and I thought it was really great and totally worth my time and money. I saw the film in 3D and I thought it was awesome. I loved coming back to the wonderful world of Tolkien and Jackson blew me away with his visuals once more. The characters were amazing and the dwarves were so well realized. I thought that Freeman was a perfect Bilbo Baggins and his sense of humor translated very well in the film. Overall, I thought the film was awesome and it is definitely worth seeing on the big screen.
I absolutely loved this film and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. I have been waiting for this film to come out for so long and when it finally did I was afraid that my expectations are too high and I will not enjoy watching it. However, The film was great and I had a blast watching it. My friends and I decided to see it in 3D and I thought it was totally worth the extra cash. Jackson created a wonderful world once again and I loved that he stayed so close to Tolkien’s book, I really appreciated that. Freeman was a great Bilbo, I could not think of anyone else who could have done a better job with this role. McKellen is amazing as always and of course Serkis’ Gollum was the winner in my book. One can tell that a lot of love went into this film and I had a blast watching it.
