The Hobbit was an amazing visual experience that was full of emotional, humorous, and epic scenes. However, some parts of the movie seemed overly silly and detracted from the overall mood of the film. During almost every battle scene, characters said cheesy one-liners. This attempt at humor during the "serious" parts of the movie made me care less about the quest. If there is no sense of danger, there is no emotional investment in the film. Also, I was not a big fan of the bunny sled chase scene, the White Orc, or the new Wargs. Lastly, the 3D was absolutely horrible. It is never a good sign when the best 3D is in the previews.

Aside from these few complaints, the movie was spectacular. Moments that stood out for me were bag end and riddles in the dark. While obviously not up to the epic scale of LOTR(and not intended to be), The Hobbit is a fun film that can stand on its own.
