Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

Some aspects of the first Shire scenes in Fellowship do feel forced. After seven minutes of austere exposition we're into scenes with old friends we've never seen before sharing reminiscences of events we've never been privy to, and to an outsider it's maybe less than convincing. Not that this is necessarily a fault as such; instead of charming us, FOTR asks us to be patient and invest in it. I wonder how these early scenes will be viewed in light of The Hobbit.

The first bed scene that comes to mind is the reunion scene near the end of ROTK. The second is the one where Frodo wakes up in Rivendell in the first film.
