Quick thoughts on The Hobbit

I'm making these when I'm about to go to bed, but I had to share some thoughts:

[Spoiler (click to open)]
1. Special effects? Mind-blowing, and dizzying. If you get motion sick easily, be wary of watching a 3D version. There are some sequences that made ME a bit disoriented.

2. Martin made a great Bilbo. You can see the character journey taken just in this part of the movie, even though so much extra has been added to fill out the story. (By the by, it was kinda cool seeing this reference to the opening day of the main events of Fellowship. Although I swear I could tell Ian and Eiljah had grown older since the first filming. Kinda hard to hide.)

3. Hey, we finally have proof there are female dwarves! :D And not all of them have those big beards.

4. Would've preferred a closer connection to how the finding of the Ring was filmed in LotR.

5. The music was beautiful. I have to buy the soundtrack now. :)

6. Sylvester McCoy. I assume Radagast is about as far as you can get from the Doctor he played, but he was fun to watch. And he's slated to be in the two additional movies. I'm filled with curiosity about the Seventh Doctor now. :DD

So it was worth the money and the staying up late. I was surprised, and so were my friends, that it wasn't more crowded even for this area. Still... I did see two girls dress up. One was a Hobbit, the other either an Elf or a Woman of high birth. I felt okay just wearing my Galadriel replica items. :)

So you've discovered Sylvester McCoy?! Yay!! He's a wonderful comic actor who is sadly rarely used.

And yay that you enjoyed it all!!

He seemed to have at least one additional project coming up, if the IMDB rumors are true. His Radagast was likable, and you felt for him when he panicked over his beloved animals. D:

And I noticed that Sherlock was listed in the credits! Can't wait to see him in real action! :DDDD
