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.
