I went to see The Hobbit for the second time this weekend – this time in 2D with my grandma. Nobody else wanted to go with her, so Emile and I said we would go even though we’d seen it before.
The Hobbit does not seem to be getting the sincere love that the Lord of the Rings series got. Reviews call out the 48 frames per second and the lack of action and hodge podge presentation of the stories. I enjoyed the movie the second time.
And there you go “I enjoyed the movie”. Why is it that I hesitate to tell you the truth – I loved the movie. I love the Lord of the Rings and I love this movie. Perhaps Peter Jackson is drawing perhaps more than he should on the appendices and and unused material from the Lord of the Rings. Perhaps the Hobbit is supposed to be lighter. Perhaps it doesn’t need 3 films to tell. But there are few movies that I actually pay to rewatch. I love the “moments”, the score, the scenery. (the rock giant fight I could have lived without really).
January 26 & 27, 2013 Extra-Ordinary: Admit I love something – who cares if someone else doesn’t agree.
And thank goodness, that it wasn’t my storage unit that burned down – it was just right beside the vacant warehouse that did. Talk about a clutch in the heart driving up that day.
