A short report on the Hobbit.
I must admit I was a bit concerned as the reviews that I had read had been pretty mixed,and some had been quite rude.
Anyway,dragging along 'our lass' [my wife] I lashed out £32.00! to experience 3d and Imex,whatever that is.
I don't want to spoil the film for anyone and write a review of the film,but I will say that I loved it.
I think its better than Lord of the Rings,and for me the 3 hours went very quickly.
I'm not certain how it got a 12 rating as some parts of the film are fairly scary,in particular when Gollum appears on the scene.
Gollum by the way is better than ever. I was interested to see how Radgast the Brown would be interwoven into the film, but it works,and lends a bit of humour to the film. I think its alright to describe the character as a hippy type of wizard.
Personally I don't think the film feels padded out,and the additions work well.
My wife unfortunately was a herder person to please,but even she liked the way it was filmed. That's posh for I'm bored!
Anyway if you were thinking about going,lash out,get the best seats,and enjoy the experience.I did.
