 Rings!

I first viewed "The Hobbit" in IMAX 3D 48fps at the midnight showing and I have to say I was very impressed. I will not write a very long, drawn-out review, but I will make a few points. I think that like with the trilogy, the acting, the make-up, the costumes, the entire world of Middle Earth was portrayed beautifully on screen. The adaptation from "The Hobbit" was as I expected with all the build-up and news on the fact that Peter Jackson was also adapting story from the Appendices at the end of "The Lord of the Rings." The addition of Azog to the story (although he was one of Tolkien's creations) was not a bad addition and didn't ruin the story for me.

Martin Freeman was incredible as Bilbo, and I don't think they could have found a better actor. Richard was superb as Thorin Oakenshield and I already look forward to the next film just to see him again.

Overall: I think it was very well done. The humor was perfect, the 48 fps was beautiful, and it was nice to enter the world of Middle Earth again.
