I loved the opening prologue! It was epic and huge! Particularly since I was seeing High Frame Rate for the first time in my life.

I liked the prologue with the dwarves. I think the framing story with Bilbo could've been lost with no harm done, however.

Can't be bothered reading the thread.. did some of the soundtrack have the same refrain as some JJTrek?

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

I finally watched the movie. It was okay, but it felt waaaaaaay too long. I enjoyed the LOTR trilogy, but I have no particular interest in watching the next two Hobbit films.

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

Somewhat old news now, but An Unexpected Journey will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on March 19th, and for digital download on March 12th! Also, Peter Jackson will be hosting a live first look at The Desolation of Smaug on March 24th, but it will be restricted only to those who buy the movie, which will come with an access code.

I'll be waiting for the inevitable Extended Edition (which will likely come out in November or so), but I thought folks might like to know.

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

An extended cut? Really? My biggest complaint about tbhe movie was that it was a theatrical release that already felt like an extended cut. I guess I shouldn't be surprised...

I don't know if there's been an official announcement for one, but I'm pretty certain it will happen.

The extended cut was announced about four months ago apparently, and going by Empire it appears to have been finalised before the theatrical version was released.

PS: Per Amazon it appears the the DVD/Blu-ray release (in Europe anyway) will take place on April 8th.

I sure hope it doesn't take as long to come out here as ROTK:EE did.

Edit: Amazon tells me nothing, even about the theatrical cut:
"Sign up to be notified when this item becomes available." Gah!
