Film Format Seen? 3D 48 fps
Will view again in a different format? No

I went to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on a sunny saturady afternoon.
I saw the film in 3D 48 fps, and was amazed at the crystal clarity it gave. Sequences like Riddles in the dark and An Unexpected Party were beautiful. Although in some the battles especially when the dwarves take a slide down a hole into the goblin caves it made me feel a bit disorientated. I would definitely see it again in this format.
The film at some points was word perfect straight from the book itself; at other points there are Peter Jackson twists. I didn’t mind this at all and thought it made it even better!

The Music. Well what to say about the music? Beautiful! the main theme seems to have presented itself as The misty mountain song hear in the trailer. We hear echoes of the lord of the rings all through the journey (like when Bilbo discovers a certain ring)

Ian was a brilliant Gandalf as usual, Martin Freeman was the perfect casting of Bilbo for me, his facial expressions, the way he acts and the brilliant way he knows how to get into Bilbo’s head. The Dwarves were good although i would have liked to see more of them speak, Fili and Kili seemed to get most of the spotlight while Bomber said nothing at all.

There are two main battles in The Hobbit, One in the goblin caves and one right at the very end which I will say nothing about.
I wasn't sure about the Goblin Cavern battle- The goblins were feeble and the dwarves were able to just batter them aside. Although the battle at the end was packed with emotion and great courage from Bilbo’s part.

All in all I loved the film and will be going to see it again at 48 fps.
I can’t wait for the next one!
