OBBIT OR HOBBNOT
Okay so, where the hell do I start with this one… THE HOBBIT!! Sounds EPIC! Right?! Right?! Fuck no it’s not. You would think that coming from the director of the L.O.T.R. or (Lord of the rings for those of you who don’t know) That this movie would pack a punch, and not like a Hawaiian punch, more like a HOLY SHIT DID Tyson just knock that guy out in 1 min type of punch. It doesn’t. Let me explain why.
With these types of movies directors tend to make things drag out way tooooooooooooooooooooooo much. Kind of like I just did with that. Now let me say I’ve always been more of a Star Wars fan, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t like the Lord Of the Rings movies. That’s a whole different review.
The HOBBIT, was a one volume book, it was written in 1937. One book. Not two or three, but one book. This is where I must give you a spoiler alert. I’m going to be talking about the movie. ALERT!
With all of that crap out of the way, let me move forward. The movie starts out seems like a good character build up, you meet who you need to meet. They Mr. Jackson, works on getting you to build a connection with the character(s). This is when the first problem starts. The character build just fucking keeps going, in fact I think at one point I looked down and it was like 20 min into the movie and I will still in the goddamn HOBBITs house…really? Come on, you couldn’t build on this in a different location(s)?
Well, once the character builds are done and you realize how much of a pain in the ass Bilbo is going to be, Jackson starts to move into the story line. What you gather from the first part is Bilbo was tricked by Gandalf, and Bilbo is supposed to be a burglar for this group he’s now joining. What pisses me off is this is about 20 more min of the movie to explain that, and to find out that he’s not really up for it.
Now we move on to the next part of the movie, they enter into a forrest called Mirkwood. They fight the normal things in these types of movies, spiders, trolls, blah blah blah, They then move onto…You know what, No. I’m not going to do this.
I thought the movie was just ok. Yes ok, that’s me being nice. What I could say is, a lot worse. Somehow Mr. Jackson kept my interest, but on a boring level. Like a train wreck, you need to see how it ends up. Well I did, and goddamn it, You’ve just turned it into a 3 part movie? Really? Really? Come on, this movie could have been done in one movie. NOPE! they decided to drag it out.
Not a fan. Lost me there
Would I see it again? No. It was boring. And if you see it in the High frame rate… yeah it blows. Looks like a horribly shot soap opera, or a high school play shot by a dad on a cannon 7D.
Final thoughts. See it if you have money to blow and looking for something to do. I give it a 2 out of 5 stars.
Thats it. I’m done.
