I was nervous going into the IMAX 3D HFR showing of The Hobbit, but I needn't have been. It was wonderful. I loved every minute of the HFR, the details, the colors, even the faster than usual motion and action. Acting, editing, directing - all fantastic and made for an enjoyable film that never felt like its nearly 3 hours length. Although some have quibbled over book vs. film in terms of details (Azog), my real disappointment came from Howard Shore's score, which felt more like recycled music from the LOTR films than any real new melodies. Hoping for this in the next films, which I cannot wait to see.
