I saw the 3D version of The Hobbit. I don’t know who this J.R. Tolkien guy is, but he is clearly ripping off the Harry Potter series.

I am joking, of course. Tolkien’s Hobbit in 1937 started it all (which were also based on the Merlin legends from the Middle Ages), but many people under a certain age have now been permanently impressioned by seeing so many fantasy genre CGI movies, that the Pete Jackson Hobbit films, in the year 2012, will not impress the same way his Lord of the Rings did ten years ago.

For the first time in my experience, the theater crowd I was in that watched one of the Tolkien films did not give a standing ovation afterward. Also, film critic reviews mostly said that the movie starts off slowly and finishes well. If the same film were released ten years ago, everyone would have been in awe.

For the Tolkien fans, they will not be let down, unless they disapprove of some plot changes added by Jackson not in the book. For the casual moviegoer, they will mostly be glad that they saw the film. The Gollum character was outstanding. Technically, the 48 frames per second format said to be stunning, but that is not the 3D version.
