Modern gaming apologist: I once tasted diarrhea so shit is fine.
I've seen almost every review of the Hobbit available online, and the more I read through them, the more it seems to me that these critics that give the movie 6/10 or similar score do it either for publicity or out of sheer blind hatred towards the higher frame rate/Peter Jackson's vision. I can't understand how those websites can give people who are not even fans of the LoTR to review the Hobbit, and bitch about the length of the movie, the lack of female characters, or how the first 40 minutes of the movie are so boring. Those are all shitty points, that only raise one question: Who are these people? They should never ever touch anything remotely connected to Middle Earth, because they obviously haven't felt the magic that flows through it's veins, both in the books and the movies.
Luckily, there is a whole different side to the story, and the amount of online support the Hobbit is getting is just incredible, seeing that the movie is yet to come out. I honestly believe that nothing can, will, nor should stop the Hobbit in becoming the highest grossing trilogy of all time. Basically everyone I know is going to theater to see this baby, and believe me, never before have I seen so many people excited about one movie. The hype blows Avengers and TDKR out of the water, with ease.
Still waters run deep.
It shall be epic.
I also can't wait for this movie. But i heard that there will be 3 parts of the movie? Isn't this true?
You make a good point of course, but mine has been only that these people - don't. I might have seemed a bit overzealous there, but I just can't stand this huge dislike of change that is embedded deep in our society. It happens all the time, in every aspect of our lives, until the hate gradually fades into oblivion and the new stuff completely replaces the old. Guess I'm just tired of that backward way of experiencing life. Especially when I see it happening to something that has been a huge part of my childhood and has partly made me the person I am today.
Still waters run deep.
EDIT: A guy over at the IMDb forums has seen a pre-screening of the movie:
Skrew the critics, this movie is going to be amazing.

Love. Tolerance. 122.
Ugh, critics really do grind my gears. I don't know why people pay heed to them. Films are such a subjective thing IMO, either take opinions from friends who have seen it or just go and make your own mind up if its a title that interests you, critics should never be taken seriously.
Can someone explain to me the 48fps thing?
i've read that it 48 image per min? or something , correct me if im wrong but how is it suppose to be bad? more image sound just much better ;O
Apparently the end credits run for SIXTEEN minutes.
