Chally, Mary and the tigtogmob went to see The Hobbit today. I know that several other Hoyden authors and regular commentors have also seen the film recently.
It’s time to dish and spill. What did you think?
I was very happy to see Frodo and Gandalf and Galadriel and Elrond and Gollum again, Martin Freeman was heartbreaking, Richard Armitage was FINE, James Nesbitt was hilarious, Sylvester McCoy was delightful, and I called it wrong on who was playing the Chief Goblin – it wasn’t Chief Inspector Dalziel of the Yorkshire Constabulary at all!
I didn’t reread the book before the viewing, mostly because I couldn’t easily find it, but I’m glad I didn’t now – it meant that I couldn’t exactly remember which characters are wearing metaphorical red shirts. I also understand why some reviewers are calling the film padded, but personally? I enjoyed the complex details, and am looking forward to the next two films.
