Director Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy is one of the most successful and beloved franchises of all time, so we knew that his three-film adaptation of The Hobbit would come with a certain level of anticipation. After years of waiting, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey final hits theaters this weekend, and we’ve already shared two reviews here at Collider: one from Matt Goldberg (right here) and one from Dave Trumbore (right here). Unsurprisingly, both reviews elicited a rather vocal response from our readers in the comments section.
Given the high profile nature of An Unexpected Journey and its passionate reception from fans, we thought it would be nice to hear from you, dear readers, about what you thought of the film. Hit the jump to share your thoughts on all things Hobbit and/or 48 frames-per-second.
A quick note on comments, if I may: please try to keep things civilized. Derogatory, racist, or homophobic statements do nothing to further the conversation, and those who cross the line will be banned. At the end of the day we’re all here for one reason: we love movies. The great thing about film is that two people can come out of the same movie with two wildly different opinions, and I look forward to reading your sure-to-be varied and hopefully insightful thoughts on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
