I'm glad to see The Hobbit is still going strong in the box office:
Quote:
Moviegoers will have plenty to unwrap in theaters Christmas Day, with a hefty eight films opening, including Martin Scorsese’s latest “The Wolf of Wall Street”, Ben Stiller’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and the Keanu Reeves samurai tentpole “47 Ronin.” But auds still are likely to crown Warner Bros.’ third-frame holdover “The Hobbit” as the B.O. champ, with a projected five-day gross at north of $40 million.

I saw it a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed it more than the first one. Considering how badly these films could have been butchered by Hollywood, I'm quite pleased with how they are coming out.

It's also a nice happenstance that there is no easy way to stick Burger King or Coke product placements into Middle Earth, although I half expect so see an empty Coke can in Smaug's pile of gold.

@rosborne979,
Who's super psyched for the finale coming up next week? 17 December 2014 (USA)

I'm getting a copy of this week's Entertainment Weekly (which celebrates both Stephen Colbert and his last remaining episodes and the upcoming Hobbit finale).

I'm looking forward to it and I'll definitely see it quickly. But I don't find myself getting "super psyched" for any movies any more. I just can't trust them to deliver.

We'll see this one in the theater. We rarely do that anymore, but we make an exception for Peter Jackson films.

@tsarstepan,
Alright. I just saw it.

Just my opinion, but I thought it was the weakest of the three. Somehow the elements of this film seemed to lack gravitas, almost as though they were trying to jam in too much background narrative without having the time to do it.

I want to avoid spoilers so I'll leave it at that. Overall, the movie was very good, just as all of Peter Jackson's presentations are, but I find the previous two films more memorable and enjoyable to watch.

@rosborne979,
I'll also add that Smaug is by far the most interesting character, so with only limited screen time for him, this film probably couldn't compete with its predecessor.

Great action movie.

It reveals that in those former eras people didn't have over the counter vitamins but that they were taking uranium pills instead.

What a solid and durable strength these creatures have when fighting. The current professional boxers, US Marines, and UFC fighters when they fight appear to be are sissies in comparison with the dwarfs, elves, and more characters of this movie.

Besides killing like crazy, the film has love, compassion, nobility, courage, etc. which makes it enjoyable.

It has been very well directed.

This movie, if you pay attention to it, will have you thrill seated up to the end.

Always remember this: you can go out with a nun, but don't get into the hobbit.

I seen it this afternoon. I would have to agree with you on all counts.

The CGI was the weakest of all Peter Jackson's Tolkien movies. I think the studio cut back on the budget in that department. The comic relief characters weren't so effective either. The one sniveling coward character from the last part? Was so unnecessary. So much should have been cut from the film. The main battle was still exciting.

I saw it today too.

It's been awhile since I read the book, and I'd forgotten that some of the dwarf main characters are killed. Sad

Wasn't it supposed to be a goblin army instead of an orc army?
