Tyler Perry needs to step up his game if he's going to become the next Marc Jacobs:

My wife and I went to see Frozen on Friday and really liked it. It was a bit slow to get going, but once it did it was a lot of fun and had some great songs.

The new Hobbit is a hell of a lot better than the first one. I give it a RECOMMEND with lots of popcorn and everything else they sell at concessions.

$16 Million on an opening weekend isn't that bad. Budget was probably under 30, they'll get that back.
 
2013-12-15 02:43:48 PM
The Hobbit was in there some where but mostly it was about a torrid love affair between two lesbian elfs chicks and a dwarf. I call it Broke Back forest.

I didn't like the Lord of the Rings movies, and didn't see the first Hobbit movie, but I really loved the second one.

I didn't think I'd like it, but it was great!

Maybe I'll give another chance to The Lord of the Rings.

My youngest son, for one. Me, looking forward to watching something in the theater with the kids.

Godfather Part II or Casablanca it's not, but it was a fun way to while away three hours sitting in a theater. I wish Jackson would make up his mind about whether the dwarves should be badass warriors or hapless doofuses, though.

I sure didn't.  He pooped on Tolkien's grave with that piece of crap movie.  I was fine turning it into 3 movies, since there's more than enough material in the Appendix and Silmarillion to do so.  But making Radagast into a retarded idiot?  That was the last straw.  Even the worst wizard was on par with the most powerful elves.  Fark PJ.  Fark him in his a.

I'll see it next weekend on the IMAX screen... ( spectacle over substance,IMHO; but I already know what I'm walking into).

I saw the Hobbit on Friday morning.

Good that Beorn was in it, though they dropped Gandalf's clever story that convinced Beorn to let them stay.

Loved Tauriel.  Galadriel and Arwen were too good and holy to have naughty thoughts about, but not THIS elf.

Bard certainly had his role expanded greatly.

And Thorin and his allies tried to fight Smaug inside the Mountain, trying to use their knowledge of the place against him.  Didn't quite work, of course.

wait until you see the river barrel scene where every good guy involved is more invincible than Neo.

Smaug scenes were excellent and the spiders were done well.  Everything else though...

In the Tyler Perry justice system, the Tyler Perry's are Tyler Perryed by two separate, yet equally important Tyler Perrys. These are their stories.

I enjoyed some of the new characters added to this version of The Hobbit, especially the addition of the evil queen.
 
2013-12-15 03:41:50 PM
Lessee...

Invincible Legolas. Bullshiat romance. Orcs everywhere, even on the roofs of Esgaroth. Joint orgasm between elf and dwarf brought on by herb. Bullshiat, interminable fight scene in an Erebor that couldn't have fit within the Lonely Mountain. Thorin riding a metal boat on a river of molten gold without sizzling like a pack of cheap bacon. Giant forges and water-driven machinery that just happen to work perfectly even after decades. Bullshiat about "windlances" and "black arrows". A giant dwarf cast of molten gold that dissolves in a gush of bad CGI after holding together for at least a minute.

At least Smaug was entertaining. Other than that, I wasn't terribly happy with the movie.

FWIW, I've never been able to sit through Shelob in the theater.

Whereas this scene just had me up until 6 AM in a fully lit room thinking "Giant Spiders going to eat me, Giant Spiders going to eat me...."

It was great, haters gonna hate. It had better pacing than the first part, and we got character growth and brilliant scenery. Those who biatch about the length should stick to tv shows. And no it's not completely faithful to the books, and thank Fark for that.

I'm a bit of an arachnophobe, and I saw it in 3D.. yeah, I was looking away a bit during that part.

Maybe he's supposed to be comedic, but I didn't like Radagast being a retard either.  The Istari are supposed to be some of the most powerful in Middle Earth.  Gandalf defeated a balrog single handedly for goodness sake.  He can't take Sauron on by himself, but Christ on a cracker, c'mon!

Saw Hobbit on Friday and loved it. The scenes with Smaug were exactly as awesome as I'd hoped. I would have liked a little more banter between Bilbo and Smaug, but the extended fight inside the mountain was amazing. We saw it in 2D, and I plan to go back and see what it's like in 48fps sometime this week.

This movie is definitely better paced and leaner than the first installment. (Of course, since my preferred version is usually the Extended Edition, I didn't have a problem with the first one.) So those of you who didn't like the slower pace of the first one should find this one much improved.

I especially enjoyed the glimpse at the more extended Tolkien universe. The world-building is fantastic, and it's a shame Peter Jackson didn't helm the Star Wars Prequels because this is how you do it.

The five Istari were minor Ainur, sent to Middle Earth in the guise of moral men to inspire people to fight Sauron.  Only one of which stayed true to that purpose.  Radagast was too distracted by his study of birds and beasts; the 2 Blue Wizards ventured far into the East and were never heard from again; Saruman decided to imitate Sauron.

IIRC, Erebor was founded by Dwarves who fled Moria (after digging too deep....waking the Balrog).

You should also remember that Balin, whose tomb they discover in Moria, is one of the dwarves helping take back Erebor. Most of the dwarves from that expedition did not have a happy end.

So is the new Hobbit worth the IMAX price or just a regular showing?  Felt I got stiffed on the first one.
