We went to see the midnight showing of The Hobbit last night (this morning?) and guys, guys, it's so much fun! 

It's LOOOOOONG, but it didn't feel bloated or stretched out or anything.  I was a bit worried when I found out Jackson had turned it into a trilogy, but really . . . so much stuff happens in that little book!  And there's even more stuff that's hinted at, or passed over in the text -- so there's plenty of material to fill three movies.

They weren't showing it in 48fps, which I didn't mind -- I'll want to see it that way eventually, if possible, just to compare, but the normal frame rate looked beautiful to me.

Martin Freeman is a fantastic  Bilbo.  Everyone was fantastic, really, but he really sold it, I think.  Armitage is great as Thorin -- and Thorin is kind of a pompous ass in the books?  Or, well, he's very aware that he is An Important Dwarf.  But I LOVE Thorin in the movie.  He's still so painfully proud, but he seems more solemn  and sensitive too.

Anyway, SO GOOD.  But now I have to wait for the Desolation of Smaug.  ;__:
