Yes, it does. Always a nice bonus, I think. Though his performance as a dwarf is fine.
He was good with a bow and arrow!

Oops. Sorry about the amateur error. The missus is out, and i was trying (and failing) to multi-task.

It's exactly the same version as the one I'd already seen.

Didn't Bilbo say in FOTR (the film) that they spent so long discussing how to eat him that the sun came up and they turned to stone?
I think he said something like that

I went to see this tonight and enjoyed it, despite my expectation that I might be let down.

I read the Hobbit before Lord of the Rings when I was younger, and it's pretty much as I imagined bar the obvious added material designed to flesh it out a bit, which is fair enough really.

It does have the much lighter spirit of the book which is good, although I know this appears to have upset fans of the cinematic LOTR who've not read either of the books and so don't really understand the differences. The Hobbit was never going to have the dark edges that LOTR had, and it doesn't suffer for it at all.

Did this remind anyone of Time Bandits? Not the story but the slapstick bits of them falling and rolling about as a group of little people.

I just got back from seeing it, and really...Mind = blown.

I'm a big LOTR fan anyway, and have read The Hobbit book at least 5 times.

Loved everything about this movie. Couldn't find anything bad to say about it. Just really can't wait for part 2 this year.

Yeh it had the same kind of feel as Labrinyth (Henson movie).

I thought the movie was excellent, I honestly expected to get bored as I've read the book and seen other versions numerous times but I loved the fact the movie in its own way is different.. yet stays true to the main story.

I can't wait to see the next part.

Just seen this in 3D at the local imax.... Just blown away by the quality of the picture, sound, 3D and film.

I can forgive some of the changes they did, (annoyed me for being completely unnecessary) but overall a 9/10 experience, well worth the £12 ticket!

James McAvoy says he wants to play Gandalf in The Silmarillion.

http://www.totalfilm.com/news/james-...e-silmarillion


An impossibility considering that Olorin takes no active role during the War of the Jewels, plus the fact that Christopher Tolkien will never sell the rights to The Silmarillion.

I saw this in December - after waiting for it eagerly for the past two years+!

I absolutely loved it. I thought the dwarfs were all excellent (Thorin Oakenshield played by Richard Armitage was gorgeous - and very brooding) and I loved Aiden Turner and Dean O'Gorman (whom I have had the pleasure of meeting when I was in NZ a few years ago) as Kili and Fili.

Martin Freeman was wonderful as Bilbo and Cate Blanchett was as luminescent as ever as Galadriel. And it was wonderful to see the Shire (and Bag End) and Rivendell again. Elrond was much less serious this time around and in fact, the whole tone of the film was lighter (as it should be).

And the Eagles! I wonder if they ever get fed up of Gandalf using them as a Rescue/taxi Service???

I can't wait for the next one. I don't care if it's been filled out from the book, appendices etc. I just love the spectacle, the acting and the wonderful scenery.

Went to see it last night, and blimey! That was rather bloody tremendous wasn't it?? Barely anything I disliked in the whole film. I thought the critcisms I had read of pacing issues were harsh, I thought it was perfectly paced. Just like in Fellowship, the first 45 mins-1 hour is set in the Shire, setting the scene, really enjoyed seeing the Shire again. Had a hard time remembering all the dwarves names and who was who, but I guess that will require another viewing or two cos there's so many of them. Most annoying part was whenever James Nesbitt's dwarf was on screen cos I just couldn't remember the name of the actor! Half my brain was trying to concentrate on the film and the other half was screaming 'Oh, what is he called?!?!'

Presumably they do considering that they never seem to take him to his desired destination

Really can't believe people are complaining about the three films...

At least wait until you've seen all three and then judge!

I for one would much rather have three films that aren't rushed than a story crammed into two!?

Besides more middle earth can only be a good thing!? right!?

I couldn't agree more.

Most of the posters on here seem to really like the film - the one's that are critical seem to be the ones that get hung up about 2 or 3D, number of fps, etc, rather than just relaxing and enjoying the story as it unfolds. Maybe they spoil it for themselves.

The Hobbit

After the initial battle scenes it shows (old) Bilbo beginning to write his book as Frodo walks outside to collect the post.

He brings them in to Bilbo and teases him, after discovering they are replies to his party invitations Frodo asks if he thinks Gandalf will come and Bilbo replies that he wouldn’t miss his birthday for the world.

Frodo nails the “do not disturb” sign to the gate, taking his book and explaining to Bilbo that he is heading off to the woods to greet / surprise Gandalf.

Bilbo then sits down outside and lights a pipe.

Lord of The Rings

After the initial opening scenes we see Bilbo in his house writing his book, he is disturbed by a knock at the door and he says “Frodo, door” and “Where is he ?” etc.

The scene then cuts to Frodo greeting Gandalf in the woods “A Wizard is never late” etc.

Bilbo must have forgotten moments earlier that he bid him farewell outside when he put the sign on the gate lol !
