One of my friends on Facebook (a friend long before there was a Facebook) has been going off on people, ungracious, and sometimes downright mean. I know her life sucks right now (hubby working far away all week long, menopause, economy is trashing her business), but I might just have to hide her until she stops being...irrational.

Saw The Hobbit in the 48fps 3D version today. Very mixed ideas about it. I think I want to see one of the 24fps versions before I pronounce judgment on the technology. And I want to re-read the book up to the point the movie ends before I pronounce judgment on the script or direction. Two points I will make now though, are the "Riddle Scene" was brilliant, and Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield was a revelation. I will never look at dwarves in Tolkein the same way again, and I mean that in all good ways. I was very nervous about his casting, but in this Jackson was right, and I was wrong. I can't say I feel that way about all of it, but in Thorin's case, I do.

Yes he was hunky, but i like them short and broad. (hehe)

I know what you meen about facebook, I have taken to writing a comment and waiting to press post because I find since I am under stress that im being bitchy Aine is someone a half dozen times in the past weeks I have allmost said REALLY or been witty, bitchy and then pulled back because she dosent deserve it and i dont meen it like that and face book has no tone button.

Now if only I could stop whining it would be not so hard on those who love me.

Have seen it in both formats, and I look forward to hearing your viewpoint. Thorin was awesome, but fili and kili are good eye candy too.

I saw it and I think it was 29 p. I am not wild about 3d in movies but I'm excited about 48 p and hope to be able to see it at that frame rate. If it catches on film making is going to get interesting.
