I though the first Hobbit movie was just ok. I went into this one think "meh might as well see it". I came out of it going "Wow that's the best movie I've seen all year".

I haven't watched it yet.will try in next two or three days.
jerryblake - 12/16/2013, 4:08 AM
i'm gonna watch it while i'll be at home for Christmas.
Hope it's better than part 1, more fast paced. With tighter editing. First one was ok. Good movie. Could be a lot better, but there were to many scenes that made it kinda boring. Last action scene was way too long. Also kinda ... meh.


still better than Return of The King.

Superior to Hobbit I.

Inferior to the Lord of the Rings I, II and III.

@Joe

The song in AUJ was better.
JoeMomma29 - 12/16/2013, 7:24 AM
@ TheHeat

Which song?
Mysterion - 12/16/2013, 7:27 AM
It was great, I loved it. That Barrel ride on the rapid river scene was so crazy...and Smaug was BOSS!!!!!
and the cliffhanger owned...."what have we done?!?"
Ramiel - 12/16/2013, 7:28 AM
@Joe

Song of the Lonely Mountain

It will struggle to get the one billion from the first one, maybe 900 mill.

Heading to the IMAX matinee in an hour to catch the morning matinee.

I see fire
in the mountains
I see fire
burning trees
I see fire
Hollowing souls
I see fire
blood in the breeze


Haven't seen the movie yet, but DAMN THAT "I SEE FIRE" SONG IS DEEP!!!! HAS AN EMOTIONAL PULL!!

The holiday will give this movie some pretty damn long legs. Box office Mojo seems to think it will top out at 250-270 million bucks domestically, 900 and change worldwide. Not bad at all.

It probably won't reach a billion, but it's certainly within reach. While there are a whole bunch of films coming out around the holiday, other than 47 Ronin, there isn't much competition for that kind of big-budget "event" market.

Absolutely loved this movie. Sucks I have to wait until the end of next year to pick up the extended edition.
Ranger14 - 12/16/2013, 3:26 PM
Loved it and my friend did as well. She thought it was much better than the first. I would say this is the first film I have watched in 3D that I felt the 3D really added to the experience.
MightyZeus - 12/18/2013, 3:06 AM
I'll see the film next year. I'm glad the film is making money.
