    Kong was not good, too self-indulgent. I quite liked The Lovely Bones. I just want him to hurry up and make The Chrysalids.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Sounds completely manic over there, as much as I would love to work on the Hobbit, but i'm not envious of all that stress.

    Looks good though, liked the look of 3 trolls.

    Are they still doing it at 48 fps or whatever it was?

    The lovely bones may be my most hated film ever. I was angry for days after watching. This looks worryingly shit as well to be honest.

    Called it

    It will be way to long of a film again.

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    TLB was a terrible book to begin with. Jackson did an admirable job with such dreadful source material.

    As much as I love the LotR movies, I'm finding it hard to get enthusiastic for these new ones. Anyways, my other half happened to be in Wellington yesterday and the place is apparently going Hobbit nuts.

    I like how Oakenshield takes the opportunity to feel up the princess.

    Giant Screen is showing extended editions of LOTR Trilogy from Thursday

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    I saw the trailer for the fist time tonight. this is going to be good (I hope). I'm a little miffed the film is in 3 parts, 2 yes, 3 I'm not sure.

    Last Christmas I introduced the kids to LotR, they love it and are going nuts for this.

    Compared to the original LotR books The Hobbit is a pamphlet. Making three movies out of it is shameless milking to the extreme.

    I wonder how long the adaptation of this 300 page book will be. Once the extended editions have come out. 6-7 hours? 9? Will it take longer to watch the movie than actually read the fucking book? Shit, the regular versions pretty much will take longer.

    Reviews have slowly been trickling in. Basically, the first half is slow, picks up in the second half, and the 48 fps bollocks is pants.

    The first part of Fellowship was extremely slow from what I can remember. 'Slow' I can live with, tbh.

    Get bent.

    I haven't seen anyone call the 48FPS pants, just weird. Too "real" as well (how is that a bad thing?). Not that anywhere near me is showing the bastard, so I'll never know.

    Real is not a good thing when you're a fantasy movie with vigorous amounts of CGI. We're used to seeing 24FPS, 48FPS makes things look like they're filmed with a documentary style from what I can gather.

    Film is all about hiding what is real, not bringing it to the forefront.

    Get bent.

    'Pants' was a strong word, but the impressions still don't dispel my fears of The Hobbit being turned into a soap opera.

    But I have my ticket booked... seeing it opening midnight, IMAX 3D 48 fps. So we'll see how things go.

    Read a blog about 48fps the other day, it gives the image too much clarity and the viewer can spot all the flaws in the set, costume, makeup and lighting. A similar thing happened to some shows when they started filming in 1080p and it's why movie and tv producers are concerned about 4k & 8k screens.

    A common solution to 1080p naffness is to make the scene darker, it hides flaws and focuses the viewers eye but that can also piss people off.

    Curious to see the first 8k, 48fps movie, the budget is going to be insane :)

    Didn't even realise this was a 3 parter until just reading this thread. WTF? How are they stretching that out? LOTR was stretched, and that was 10,000 pages (or whatever). The Hobbit is a childs throw-away magazine in comparison.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    Thank god they didn't make LotR into nine films.

    I've got a ticket booked just to see it at the Everyman, can't be arsed with the chavvy Imax. Struggling to get excited about it though which is odd as I really liked LotR. Just doesn't feel like it has the integrity of the other films - really does give the impression of being a money making exercise.

    By using the appendices that later tell the full story of what is going on at that moment in time. In The Hobbit, Gandalf pisses off for the second half... LOTR eventually details how he and the five wizards end up fighting Sauron in Gul Dulgur and flushing him out to Mordor. It's why the Mirkwood is so twisted and nasty when the little party turn up there, and the reason for the sudden appearance of a huge nasty enemy horde for the finale.

    So you'll be getting the Hobbit story as the backbone of the film, but there will be a lot of LOTR relevant stuff going on too.
