I thought The Hobbit was amazing. My expectations were tower high and I wasn't disappointed for a second. Peter really handled the expanded story well, he added little and bigger details which only add to the experience. The actors all preformed wonderfully. I was a little scared of not liking Bilbo because Martin Freeman always seems so arrogant in interviews, but he stole my heart. The dwarves really made the movie light-hearted but without giving up their credibility. My favorite comical relief dwarf was Bofur, and Thorin and Filli shared hunk-dwarf first places. I really think they did well in depthening Thorins character. Also the music was lovely, recognisable and charming, it pulled me right back into Middle Earth without repeating itself. The 3D really added to the immersive and overwhelming experience and looked not at all gimmicky. 48 frames really made the experience more valuable to me, because the details were highly more visible.
There really are a hundred reasons why The Hobbit is a must-see, an object of admiration and obsession and a great moment of cinematic entertainment. I adored it. I hope the rest of the world will/ did too.
