So I saw the Hobbit last night. More importantly, I saw it in IMAX 3D. The first film I'd ever seen in that format. 

IT BLEW MY FUCKING MIND



Unlike the last movie where it seems like the 3D was an afterthought tacked on at the end, this movie was clearly made for and shot in 3D. It was a feast for the eyes the entire time. The entire time being a long fucking time.



The movie has legroom with the text for better and for worse. Some scenes were entirely too long, while others has a length that was more than welcome. While people give the series so much flack for taking a small book and making it into three movies. I'm very interested in the idea. While so many films have the daunting task of taking a lengthy text and converting into a 2-3 hour movie, this one has so much time on its hands that its actually added things in. The fight between Gandalf and that one class of character from Diablo II isn't in the book and was a pretty cool bit.



Another cool thing that the movie does is that it makes Bilbo's motives unclear. You see him as both a jolly and as a menacing character the more he interacts with the ring. Speaking of: I just marathoned the Harry Potter films. Is the One Ring a horcrux?

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
The Adaptation

Some things don't belong in this world and yet they are conjured time and again by humans that wish to pay them tribute. A video game, book, comic or TV show becomes popular and later becomes adapted to another medium entirely or, worse, a mobile phone spin-off.

Sometimes you get Telltale's The Walking Dead and other times you get Super Mario Bros.: The Movie -- one a great tribute to the comics and TV shows and the other had its soul stolen and made a '90s movie executive's slave.

And here comes another classic game series with hopes of becoming a Netflix hit as I brace myself and hope it doesn't turn out to be a miserable pile of secrets.

Castlevania is a beloved series and with Konami it's sort of a surprise they'd do anything with it at all after running out the people that made their games good and running the franchise into the ground soon after. Yet here we are with an anime series debuting this week and I'm kind of excited for it.

History should leave me a bit more cynical, sure. I remember the Street Fighter live-action movie, the Zelda cartoon and much more, but Mortal Kombat was perfect in its camp and The Witcher games are pretty faithful to their source material. We even have games being adapted into other kinds of games by different developers. Borderlands is now a looter-shooter and a point-and-click adeventure and that works really well, actually.

So for this month's "Bloggers wanted," we want you head over to the community blogs and tell us about your favorite adaptations of games to other mediums or even your favorite adaptation of another medium to games. Use "The Adaptation: [Your game/title here]" in the title and place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags.

Enough talk, have at you!
