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

As the theater lights dimmed the wonderful adventure of the Hobbit began. It was not only Bilbo’s adventure, but mine as well. As soon as the movie started I could tell that it would be different from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It had a different tone and the cinematography captured it perfectly. Even though people say that the 48 fps was too much I think it was alright. I do not play video games (just in case you were wondering). The normal human eye can see 60 fps per second. The movie would have been just as good without 3D. There were only a couple of scenes that really had the 3D effect (like the one with the moth and Gandalf, fiery pine cones, and some of the arrow scenes). I would give it 9.9 out of 10. The missing .1 is because of the end credits song – I felt it was a bit too “modern” for the feel of the whole film.
