Ringer Review - NAME

Tolkien Fan Level: 8
Film Format Seen? 3D 48 fps
Will view again in a different format? Yes

To be honest, I was a bit anxious to see The Hobbit because of some bad reviews of the film which I read before I saw it myself. But it took about 1 minute and I was sold. Completely. Just to see The Shire on the big screen again was so great! I've seen it three times now, two times in 48fps 3D and one in 2D. The 48fps blew me away! I can't understand the critics on this new format, the flow, the movements and the crystal clear pictures was absolutely a joy to watch. Its no doubt that this format is the future, its just some conservative people out there who don't accept changes.

The film itself was also a great joy to watch. I loved it! When that is said, the film don't quite reach the height that the LOTR-trilogy did for me, but I didn't expect that either. But The Hobbit is still an amazing film! My favorite part from the film is the prologue. It was so great to get to know the backstory of Thorin and the lost kingdom of Erebor, wich looks amazing! I can't wait to see more of that in the two next films. Its really hard to describe every scene in the film which I enjoyed, because there is so many of them. I can write in all eternity about: riddles in the dark, the acting, Dol Guldur, white council, goblin-town, the trolls, the shire, the start of the film, the ending of the film, but I will just say that all of it is amazing! In fact the entire film is a masterpiece, and Sir Peter Jackson has proven that he knows what he is doing.

Finally, I will say that I am a die-hard fan of Tolkien and all of his works. I've waited for The Hobbit since I read the book back in 2003, when The Return of the King was smashing records worldwide! To see The Hobbit do the same thing today is unbeliveable when you think of the hard road to finally bringing The Hobbit to the world. My expectations were sky-high towards the film, and when I went out of the cinema after watching it the first time, I just smiled and could not stop of thinking of what I've just saw. And that says a lot!

Now, bring on The Desolation of Smaug! :)
