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?
