How in Durin’s name am I supposed to wait until next year

for the second Hobbit movie??? I guess I will have to settle for many repeated viewings of the first one!

I have been offline for the past week and have no personal knowledge of any reviews at this point. I am 90% healthy now, my semester is over and I celebrated by attending the midnight showing at a local theater. I chose the HFR 3D format and have absolutely no regrets. Well, maybe one. I was so busy trying to take everything in, I forgot to blink! (Note to self: next time, blink more often!!)

I truly enjoyed the movie and the soundtrack was sublime. I am exhausted now and ready for bed. Not the most eloquent of posts, but I just had to tell somebody!!!

Many thanks to J for keeping me company via text while I waited impatiently for the movie to begin!! πŸ˜‰

    I will see the movie tomorrow in English and 3D, but I don’t know if the cinema has HFR format or not. πŸ™‚

    I will see it with 2 friends who don’t know Richard, so it will be their “first time”, lol.

      I hope you have a great time! I’m going Saturday morning with my husband and older son. I think we’re going to the 2D version. I’ll take the teens to a 3D version later on, maybe over Christmas break. Merry Christmas to me! and them, I suppose! πŸ™‚

    I saw it with a friend who doesn’t know him from Adam. She’s writing a review.

      I almost have to wait until next year to see the first one! 😦 it doesn’t come out until Boxing Day here in Australia.

      I will be taking as many of the bolly knickers family as I can wrangle. Mr B will definitely come- the poor man has been nearly driven to drink over the last few weeks with my RA / Hobbit obsession.

      Can’t wait can’t wait can’t wait can’t wait….

    Share the feeling that I don’t want to wait a whole year! Especially because I want to look at it closely now and don’t even have a DVD. This is a new experience for me in Armitageworld, I’ve always had pirated computer files almost instantly.

    I also found the last few hours of waiting viciously unpleasant. I am visiting a friend and she did what she could to calm me down πŸ™‚

      Thank goodness for friends! πŸ˜‰ I just finished reading your analysis. Fantastic!! I have so much I want to say about the film, but I am going to wait until I see it again. There is one scene in particular I need to look for. Unfortunately, I won’t know which one it is until I hear it again. I swear I heard another chaRActer echoing in my brain. I cannot be completely certain unless I hear it a second time. Maybe I was delusional. lol Maybe I just need to get more sleep. (zzzzz…)

      • Servetus says:

        Interesting. So did I, not just one scene, but two. I have to see it again soon, but this afternoon am taking my mom to see Lincoln … Can’t wait to read more from you.

          I just got home from taking Boy1 to see TH. Was going to go with Boy1 *and* hubby, but hubby decided he’d rather sleep in. lol So, we sprung for the IMAX 3D version (methinks I preferred the HFR, honestly). I *did* hear the chaRActer again – in two scenes for sure. He was in a third as well, but to a lesser extent.

          I need to type up my thoughts, and the boy’s too. I’d have him do his, but I think he would freak out on me. Girl is going this evening with friends. Maybe I’ll have her do a review. She’s a Super-Who-Lock-ian (Supernatural, Doctor Who, and Sherlock fan) and heaven only knows what she would come up with! It would be interesting, for sure. Hmmm. I think I’ll ask her.

          I’d like to see Lincoln, but I’m going to wait on that one. I’d like to hear what you think after seeing it. πŸ™‚

          • Servetus says:

            Can’t wait to see if your chaRActer is the same one I noticed.

            Lincoln: I cannot tell a lie (oh, wait, wrong president), it drags at the beginning. It is a lot more like a play than a movie (probably owing to scriptwriter Tony Kushner), and it doesn’t have the usual Steven Spielberg happy ending. Sections of it are pretty good and there’s a subplot that has humorous features. There are a few things in it that a historian of the period would be likely to disagree with. But it’s worth seeing.

    I’m so glad to hear that you’re feeling better. And hurray! The semester is over!!!! Goodbye group projects and silly classmates. I’m so excited to see the movie this evening and hope I enjoy the HFR. I feel certain that I’ll want to see it repeatedly, but I’ll just have to refrain. πŸ˜‰

    • ItsJSforMe says:

      Thanks Jas. I think I am on the mend. Three weeks is just ridiculous, is it not? This was such a crazy semester for sure! (I don’t wanna talk about group presentations and silly classmates. grrrr!)

      I’m not gonna refrain! I’m gonna see this movie over and over! *very big grin*

    So good to read that you’re feeling better! *hug* And that the semester is done! Woo-hoo!!! πŸ™‚
    I get to see it tomorrow afternoon in HFR 3D and am really excited about it.
    Thanks for sharing with us! πŸ˜€

  6. ItsJSforMe says:

    Thanks Zan! *hugs* I cannot wait to hear your thoughts on the movie!!!

  7. Glad you hear that you’re on the mend. I feel your pain, being on the tail end of a month or more of bronchitis myself.

    My hubby and I saw The Hobbit movie last night in 24 fps 3D and loved it! I’ll try to write my thoughts down in my Sunday post. But I definitely want to see it in the HFR/48 fps 3D Imax format. I’ll just forgo the jiggle DBox seats. Ha!
