Review: Boring.

Yes, this will be a very boring review, you have been warned.
Because all I have to say about this film is that it wowed me entirely. I haven't a bad thing to say about it - except that I feel an overwhelming jealousy at anyone who had the chance to be part of it.
I've seen the film 3 times (once in IMAX 3D, once in 3D and once in 2D), each time taking different family and friends to share the experience, hoping they would leave with the same sense of awe, excitement and fulfillment that I did each time. In fact, I think I'll see it for a 4th time soon, and this time I'll take my mum, to try and offer some explanation for my obsessive tendencies these past few years.
I get very excited about things very easily, so it's something to say that the impending arrival of the next Hobbit film has got me rather worked up. We're going to see so much more of Middle-Earth, parts we thought we'd never see but are now being brought to life for us by the amazing filmmakers.
I owe my life to Tolkien, Peter Jackson and all the people who have worked on bringing the beautiful world of Middle-Earth to life!! I really do. Well, without them I wouldn't HAVE much of a life. Or it would be very boring.
So, boring review over. I hopefully haven't said anything to offend anyone here! I'm sure you'll all agree that the Hobbit has been done remarkable justice.
