    The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey (MiceChat Reviews)

    I am a big fan of the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit books. I also think that the Lord of the Rings trilogy is one of the most ambitious(and greatest) trilogies of all time. Now the Hobbit is getting a trilogy. I am a tad worried about it becoming a trilogy. There were three books in the LOTR trilogy, so naturally they would make three films. The Hobbit is a 270 page book that can be read in a day. Now I understand that they want to show us where Gandalf goes when he leaves the group, and expand on the mythology some more. I have full faith in Peter Jackson. I just don't want the Hobbit to be this decades Phantom Menace.

    Re: The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey. Who's excited?

    I'm excited for it because I loved reading that book as a kid. I'm more excited for the Superman trailer that is supposed to precede it.

    According to TOR.net The Hobbit will be rated PG-13. I wouldn't have expected anything less.

    Re: The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey. Who's excited?

    Some early reviews. Some positive, some not so much. Movie is currently 71% on RT.

    Most interesting is the discussion on the 48fps. This may be an issue. I personally have no interest in seeing it in 48fps or in 3D.

    I really think distributors are going to push back on the 48fps.

    Re: The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey. Who's excited?

    So will it be the end of the Hobbit Part Three when we get to the end of "The Hobbit" novel or does that happen in Part Two? I'll just assume it's not in Part One.

    I heard about this on the news this morning to. And unfortuantly, that is why I might pass with seeing it in the theatre. I get VERY motion sick with things like this. It's hard for me to go on Star Tours sometimes because of the movements. But the theater won't be moving. So I could take the chance....

    Of course, I don't know that the motion is the problem but more the fact that it looks very real. Some even said it felt like they were watching a LIVE show...bizarre.

    Re: The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey. Who's excited?

    It's certainly not part One. If I had to guess would end with the final journey to the Lonely Mountain after they leave Lake Town.

    I certainly think there is enough for 2 movies if they are going to show what Gandalf was up to while not with the company, I mean who wouldn't want to see him and Saruman taking on the Necromancer? I just don't know if there is enough for 3 movies.

    Clara, from what I'm hearing only 10-15% of showings will have the 48fps and those will only be the 3D presentations from what I understand. So if you see it in Non-3D (which I will be) you'll be fine.

    Ah I see ok thanks so much! I did want to see this in the theatres because the last one I saw..I was 8 months pregnant and sitting in that theatre for the 3 hours was torture! Even bringing my own pillow didn't help. But I had to see it!

    Re: The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey. Who's excited?

    I can't believe that the reviewers only problem is the crappy 48 frames per second deal. I'm sure my little theater will show it in 24 frames per second.

    Re: The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey. Who's excited?

    Here's a list of theaters and what format they are showing the movie in.

    UPDATED: theatres showing The Hobbit in HFR 3D, IMAX 3D, IMAX, Dolby Atmos | Hobbit Movie News and Rumors | TheOneRing.net?

    If you'd just like the .pdf you can get that here.

    I don't think it's all theaters because our local theater is not listed. It appears that if your theater isn't listed, they are showing it in the 48fps.

    My theatre isn't listed...I may have to either drive to another city or just pass all together.
