The inactivity of this forum.
Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:06 pm by Burkman
It's depressing to see how inactive it has been recently. I mean, everybody is pretty much primarily posting in the never ending thread now and there's not enough people here to make this place really booming. We need to find some way to bring more people here before this place just fades into nothingness...

I know for a fact that a lot of boards out there are thriving because of how many people are there. We just need to get back into the game and pull people here. However, where we obtain these people might matter, because we don't to end up pulling in douches like those at Selkath.

I understand that people are busy these days, but it doesn't seem like they're rarely at their computer anymore. I know most of you are still dicking around with your computer. I don't know how we …

It was pretty sweet. I liked how at the beginning it gave a little wink to the first Lord of the Rings when Frodo leaves.

Anybody else see it?

I like how they made the sage decision to make the book into three films and include as much as possible...
Also the King of Goblins was pretty funny... I also feel Radagast was made to look overly eccentric, much so than hinted in the Silmarilion and "There and Back Again"...
But the excessive hints at weed and mushrooms were also pretty funny...

I didn't like, or at least am not a fan of, the new method of screening the film at 48 frames per second... Peter Jackson might be a bright lad when it comes to effects and all, but that's just not very good. It simply makes the film appear as if being sped-up at certain parts... It also needs a seizure warning, because this is nearly twice the speed the human eye can safely perceive images...

I thought it was good.


I don't remember Radagast being that important in the book(or having bird shit in his hair).

Also, some lady had fucking jingle bell ear rings that were jingling the entire time during the movie.

The 48 fps really didn't bother me at all. I was a little upset at how much they used CGI though. I would have liked to see more use of prosthetics and whatnot. I went into the movie expecting Lord of the Rings 4 but the Hobbit is a very different kind of movie (Which makes sense seeing as how the book is much more lighthearted than the trilogy.) But it was a great adventure film and I'll certainly see the next two when they are eventually released.

All in all... I'd give it 19 out of 24 pandas.

He's not actually that much in the book so much as in like short stories and letters Tolkien wrote after it...

They used Tolkien's appendices in addition to the book... I mean... c'mon... they split the shortest LOTR book into three movies.

I thought it was average to be honest, sorta disappointed I dun wanna...

The king of goblins was funny and I actually liked some of the battle and the goblin chase scene.

But it intimadates me, how everyone escapes death, sometimes in the most absurd ways, I like deaths okay.

Supposedly that was so they can add as much content from the book as possible, unlike with LoTR where they still skipped a damn lot, even with the extended versions...
Also money. Money is a factor as well...

Yeah... like Tom Bombadil... how the fuck do you skip over Tom Bombadil. In the Hobbit... I'm told they don't miss much in the way of even 'detail' from the book.

Bombadil isn't that big of a contribution to the overall story, but I still feel like they should've added him. At least in order to form a better understanding for the ring... But there's way more things they could have added in to build on the story...

48 fps is the future of cinema! Why don't you like change?


It is because it is mind numbingly retarded?

48 frames isn't retarded... It's just new and they're still to implement it correctly... I've seen the Hobbit four times now and I've gotten used to it. The "sped up" parts don't really seem sped up anymore and the action is much clearer...

Saw this movie last week. The only thing I didn't like about it was the cliffhanger ending. Overall, this is another one of Peter Jackson's best.
