Since the blu-ray release, I must admit I've warmed to The Hobbit a bit more than when I saw it at the theater, which left me disappointed. Somehow the movie doesn't seem as long now in the home environment.
This has been my experience, as well. While it may be the shortest of the four existing films, it felt like the longest when I saw it theatrically. Overall, I was underwhelmed. Not so when viewed in the comforts of my own home.
The first time I saw it in theaters I thought it was a little long too. After going to see it a second time movie felt passed perfectly, I have nonidea why first watch feels tedious and recurring watches after seem shorter. I dont care though waiting on directors cut.

My first viewing dragged a bit too. Subsequent viewings have been fine.

Ultimately, An Unexpected Journey was a good, IMHO very good movie - but it wasn't exceptional in the way Fellowship of the Ring was. Not only does it have some flaws (Azog, cartoonish action, and for some viewers pacing), its subject matter is "smaller" and less epic. Still, for the kind of film it sets out to be - a fun adventure as well as an introduction to Middle Earth, its cultures and its overriding conflicts - it is quite the success.

Bring on the Desolation of Smaug!

That'd be my guess, too.

I wonder if they're still going to continue with the production diaries for the next two films.

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

Entertainment Weekly has released an image of Evangeline Lilly as the elf Taurial, a character created for the movie:



“Tauriel is the head of the Elven Guard,” Lilly explains. “She’s a Sylvan Elf, which means she’s of a much lower order than the elves we all became acquainted with in The Lord of the Rings. She doesn’t hold the same kind of status that Arwen or Galadriel or Elrond or Legolas do — she’s much more lowly. She sort of goes against the social order of the elves a little bit.”

Tauriel isn’t only a fierce warrior; she has a softer side, too. “She will definitely have a love story,” Lilly says. “I can’t give away too much about it. It’s not a huge focus but it is there and it is important and it does drive Tauriel and her story and her actions.” Will that romance involve Orlando Bloom’s Legolas, by any chance? Lilly won’t say definitively one way or the other, but she does offer this much: “Tauriel’s relationship with Legolas is significant. They’ve known each other since they were children, and Legolas’ dad, [Elven king] Thranduil, has a soft spot for Tauriel and sees something very special in her. So if you grow up side by side, and your dad has a very special spot in his heart for this young woman who’s a fantastic warrior, I think it’s hard not to notice her.” She laughs. “That’s probably as much as I can say.”

I'm going to spend 100 bucks to charity if Legolas comes up to Tauriel and says "Hey, freckles."

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

I liked the first hobbit movie, even though it had some definate flaws, but I'm beyond annoyed at all these additions. There is a reason they've done them, because the book can not support 3 films. They should have just done one film, or maybe two, and cut out all of this added junk. The orc king/leader was generic and pointless in the first one, and they don't need to go adding even more stuff. Just tell the damn story, it was a great story as it was. They've screwed up by trying to milk it over three movies. I still think, when its all done, I'll look ath The Hobbit movies positively, but it could have been better if they'd just stuck to the book.

She kinda looks like Link from the Zelda games.

As a huge a huge fan of Lilly from Lost, I'm really looking forward to seeing in this. I really enjoyed An Unexpected Journey, so I'm not longer worried about the stuff not in the books.
