The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug - 27 Second Review

Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Written by: Peter Jackson, Guillermo Del Toro, Fran Walsh, and Phillipa Boyens, based on the novel by J.R.R. Tolkien
Directed by: Peter Jackson
Starring: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Benedict Cumberbatch

Review: In what's winding up to be a six (possibly seven?) part Tolkien franchise, I enjoyed this one more than its predecessor. The action, while cartoonish, is fairly consistent, and we get several little treats in the form of cameos, combat barrels, and elves using various enemies as surf boards. Not to mention Cumberbatch and Armitage having a sassy insult throwdown.

Time: 18 seconds

    Fast Forward Headache Madness: Thoughts on The Hobbit and High Frame Rate...

    Peter Jackson on the set of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

    So like all good geeks and movie enthusiasts, I visited my local cinema in the last few weeks to see the first film in The Hobbit's trilogy. Wisely, I chose not to reread the book beforehand. As it turned out, it was also wise of me to pay attention to the reactions of other people regarding the look of this high frame rate production. The reactions were all over the map; our landlord and chief bottlewasher Widge was definitely not on the fence about the subject. As for me, I happen to be on both sides of the fence.

    Let's dive into this head first, shall we? Did The Hobbit look like rubbish? Like with most questions in life, there isn't a simple yes or no answer to this one. The projection I saw--3D and high frame rate--looked sometimes brilliant, sometimes average, sometimes goofy, sometimes like a fast forwarded documentary in hi-def.

    Wayhomer Review #138: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 3D

    Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, holding Sting, from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

    Episode #138 for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 3D, in which our protagonist laments watching what could have been a good movie go down the tubes due to "technical progress." He's amazed that two good scenes were still able to shine through, and wonders what the hell Kratos is doing riding that direwolf.

    Stuff You Need to Know: RZA to Direct the Original Khan

    Yes, sorry, we've been away...but we've been trapped down in this hellhole with rats, a huge hole in the floor and a pendulum. Long story. Anyway, here's the gist: a lot of sites try to turn a bunch of press releases into blog posts and articles. You wind up reading 500 words to find out some start from The CW is now the tertiary lead in Saw XIV. Not here. We distill all of that stuff into an info smoothie that you can suck down in one sitting and get on with your life. Enjoy.

    (If you do enjoy, stuff that we cite here as up and coming or of interest--if you're going to buy it from Amazon anyway, if you do it through our links, we get kickbacks. Thanks in advance for your support.)

  • Speaking of which, the Amazon deal of the day is for the Alien Anthology on Blu-Ray for 64% off. That's just $25 for a sweet, sweet set. Normally it's $69.99. Only available today and until they run out.
