Yesterday I went to see The Hobbit and I totally agree with Carl ‘s Review!! I certainly could not give such a great review as he does, but I do have to voice in just a little.
I have found that when I like what I am seeing a movie can never be "toooo loooong"!! I am always amazed at how fast it goes by!
I don’t want to give any spoilers so I won’t say a whole lot…
I really loved Richard Armitage as Thorin and I have to say I absolutely loved what they did for the Troll King!!! I thought he was fabulous!
I really liked Sylvester McCoy (oh! nice name! lol) who played Radagast the Brown was excellent and glad he wasn’t neglected.
Again keeping with Carl’s excellent review, the music by, Howard Shores, was outstanding!
Already I can't wait for this to be out in dvd! I feel sorry for those critics that go to movies to do nothing more than to find things wrong (in their minds). while it's true everyone can't like the same things sometimes they really annoy me trying to drag a movie down when others of us are so happy for what we see before us.
I will forever be gloriously happy that Peter Jackson made all the Tolkien movies (in this case with the help of Andy Serkis who was second director as well as Gollum). I swear Jackson not only "sees" his movie before he begins but he sees what in the fans hearts and minds too. So I thank Peter Jackson from bringing Tolkien's works to life for us...
I can't say that *at my age* I can appreciate *having to wait* a whole year for part 2 !!! ARRGGHHHH!
I hope I can get to see this movie again before it leaves the theater. (yes I liked it that much!)
Do yourself a favor and go see The Hobbit.
Let Peter Jackson, Andy Serkis, Ian McKellan and all the others bring you back to Middle Earth.
*note* I have always loved Ian McKellan but after LoTR and The Hobbit, he has cemented himself in my heart, for ever more, as Gandalf!
