Re: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Grading & Discussion (Spoilers

Okay I'll admit the 48fps sometimes looked a bit jerky when people were moving around. Like the projector had currently forgotten how to time the frames. Otherwise it was pretty unoticeable to me.

Film was visually spectacular and enthralling, and it's nice to see a Middle-earth film put the dwarves front and center as the Erebor prelude did. It's not as good as any of the LOTR films, and it's choppily paced, and it often tries to sell moments as if it's LOTR in ways that don't work (this dwarven band is not exactly the Fellowship), and there is some padding in that Frodo's scene is very pointless, and the action sequences often don't have the same weight or feel kind of arbitrary like the whole 'entire dwarf company hangs on tree while Thorin fights' kind of way.

Serkis and Freeman acting off each other was the highlight of the movie.

All in all I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the sequel.

I doubt it. Did Batman ever do that with the first six mintues of their movies?
