The Hobbit, A Movie About There And Back Again… And Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone! Wish you all the best! 🙂

The Hobbit

No matter how good or bad a movie is, there will always be some guys who will praise it everywhere and in front of everyone, while some others wouldn’t be able to bear the sight of any frame from it and would anathemize it all over the world. That was why I wasn’t surprised there were negative reviews about The Hobbit, but was frustrated they were so many and so exaggerated.

Of course, the book is better, usually no movie could surpass the written story it’s based on. Yet, why there are complains about the duration of the motion picture? After all, that way a director, screen-writer and a crew could include much more events, wisdom, or adventures from the story? Many critics thought all the movie could be just two hours long (and not three parts of almost three hours each), but I guess then it would describe only a few of all the breath-taking dialogues, battles and creatures. Even now, it seems not all the adventures are included in the proper way (all the funny and interesting conversations and mishaps at the party with the dwarves and Gandalf or at Bilbo’s first meeting with the wizard were just touched upon, imagine what would they and some other adventures would look like if the movie was just one of about two hours…).

BTW, be careful which kids you would take to see this fantasy trilogy, all the nasty, scary and deadly creatures are so realistic (especially when we watch them in 3D and with 46 frames per sec.) that many of them would have nightmares after that for many nights, I guess…  Yet, all the kids and all the adults will be in awe with the costumes! As they are so perfect, as if they came out straight from the written story or are fruit of the wildest imagination… I guess all the three parts of the trilogy will have Oscars in that category…,,,,,,,,,
