Tolkien Fan Level: 5
Film Format Seen? 3D 48 fps
Will view again in a different format? No

One thing for sure, Peter Jackson still has that touch of magic in filming Tolkien's beloved novels. True, the quality doesn't really match with Lord of The Rings, but nonetheless, it brings me new perspective towards fantasy films. I, unlike some others, have no problem with Jackson using 48 fps. The picture, the screen, the scenery, the cinematography, is just PERFECT! Same goes to Martin Freeman's portrayal as young Bilbo Baggins. I could ask for no better actor to play that role and Andy Serkis' role as Gollum is such a pleasure to watch. This film is by far the best film I've watched this year and I'm looking forward to watch it again some other time. There's just something to watch at every scene. Something that catches your attention. The turn off however is the timing. It is a little too long (Thank God for good scenes) and yes, Howard Shore stil speaks the music of Middle-Earth and the score is splendidly done.
