    The Hobbit 7.5/10

    The Good: Visuals and landscape are fantastic very reminiscent of LOTR trilogy. The music is fantastic as always, though they do use alot of familiar tunes. Martin Freeman was great. I was really concerned about him when I heard he was cast but he was more than up to the task. The old faces were nice to see as well.

    The Bad: They really had some unnecessary scenes, Radagast scenes, The ending, the rock giants, and the council scene (interesting but unnecessary and took us away from the dwarfs and Bilbo for too long), just to name a few. Bilbo seems to get lost quite a bit, the story should focus on him but it bounces all over the place. The movie also seems confuse about who its audience is. Just when you think its for movie fans we get hit with a bunch of lore scene then when its staying true to the book it veers off in its own direction completely ignoring the book. Then its making poop and snot jokes and when you start believing this is going to be a more kid friendly movie someones head gets lopped off. Agog the defiler serves no purpose and only fills screen time. Horribly developed villain. The running time, I love long movies and will only ever watch the extended editions of LOTR but their was alot of fat that could have been cut.

    All these good reviews for the Hobbit...awesome, film is playing across the street from my house so I'm pumped. Glad to read that people think Freeman did a good job, I was kindof skeptical as to how he'd do after watching a few of the previews.

    The Shining -- 8.5/10, continuing my Stanley Kubrick marathon. Loved Jack Nicholson but Shelley Duvall was just...I can't put my finger on it but there was something off about her performance, it wasn't bad but it could have been better. The ending was interesting, I don't remember it being in the book...lots of differences from the source material in general but everyone here probably knows that, I'm probably the last person on earth who hasn't seen this movie :P

    Dr. Strangelove and Clockwork Orange next.

    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 10/10

    I could easily had sit for another 3 hours in the chinema after the ending, this movie is way better than I expected. The movie already deserved 10/10 from the very beginning, it was so awesome to hear the familiar music and see great characters like Bilbo and Gandalf once again, and the Dwarven capital city of Eredor was astonishing. One of my favorite parts of the movie was definatly the Dwarfs, they were exactly how dwarfs were supposed to be like and some of the most likeable characters you could imagine.

    The only negative thing I can say about the movie is that I have to wait for the next movie to be released, I'm pretty sure this is going to be the first movie I'll watch twice in the chinema.

    The Hobbit - 10/10. Don't listen to the critics, they have no idea what they are talking about.

    So, would someone who has watched absolutely zero LotR movies still enjoy The Hobbit? Should I make a point to watch the LotR movies first, or would I get as much enjoyment without watching them first?

    The Hobbit 10... ah THATS NOT ENOUGH !

    12 / 10

    I did not want it to end, I cursed that damn ending, I did not want to stay up from that Cinema chair. In comparison with almost every film thats based on a book, the hobbit is so god damn close to the original book that I have in my hands right now. (Started reading right after the cinema to compare).

    The music was absolutely fantastic, did not expect something else. I did watched it in 2d and still, looked pretty awesome.
    WATCH IT !

    well the hobbit is set before the LOTRO films, so you wouldn't miss out on anything by not watching it, but they are good films, you should watch anyway
    Need new signature ideas

    It was loads of fun and lots of good music. The acting was great as well. My only complaint is that the villainess seemed to change her tune rather quickly and easily. Loved that Iggy Pop was in it. Shame that he didn't sing anything.

    The Hobbit 100/10

    Absolutely amazing, Jackson did it again. Clearest most vivid images I've ever seen in a film and the most perfect 3D ever, combined with what is without the aforementioned the first part of one of the best films ever made.

    to break the Hobbit nerdgasms (no offense! I like the movie)

    Clockwork Orange -> 10/10 Nothing will equal this masterpiece for me.
    The Dark Knight -> 7/10 Heath was good, not that good. Prefered the first movie (but Scarecrow is my most beloved villain)
    I spit on your grave -> 6.5/10 Only the way she murdered people was intruiging
    Human Centipede -> 8/10 Would've been better if the ending didn't feel so rushed.
    Human Centipede 2 -> There are no numbers to describe this.. -2/10?

    Technically watching the Hobbit first works well.

    Had a lot of potential but went in too many weird directions. Too many characters did things that real people wouldn't do. Really takes you out of the story. Idris Elba was the best part of the movie.

    Was Hobbit REALLY that good? I couldn't stand the LOTR movies, but then again I watched them when I was younger.

    21 Jump Street - 8/10

    A movie about 2 high school kids, one cool and hip, one nerdy and awkward.
    Well, that's the movie for about 5 minutes, then we go 7 years forward in time.
    These two had each of their problems with high school, the nerdy kid didn't get any friends or girlfriends, and the cool kid got denied proms and parties because of his grades.
    They became best friends 7 years later at police academy, but because they sucked so bad at being the stereotypical "tough policeman", they got kicked to an amateur-ish espionage mission instead, hidden in a korean church on 21. Jump Street.
    The boss there got news about a new drug spreading across the local high school that both the kids went to, and they got a mission.

    The verdict: This movie cheeses everything, with stereotypical black characters, stereotypical cool/nerdy characters and stereotypical high school-romance plots. It feels like a Disney movie with guns and drugs, but it's kind of a sweet feeling, because I never liked anything real-action Disney made that involved high schools.
    They made it with the intention of being cheesy, so if you want something to laugh at that isn't standup, this is a solid choice.

    I also really enjoyed this. Packed with hilarious role reversal played by two absolute naturals at comedy, this was a great buddy flick. Light, funny, and even endearing, this movie hit all the marks it aimed to hit. Comedies don't have to be deep or intricate, they just have to make you feel good. I highly recommend this if you're just looking for a fun time.

    For a comedy I'll give it at least an 8/10 as well. There aren't a ton of comedies that I enjoy more than once, but I've seen this a couple times now and it's still pretty funny. There's just some really great buddy chemistry going on in this movie, and it's refreshing for a comedy to not use bathroom humor every third joke.
