The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey


It looks “better” than my homemade videos, I’ll give Jackson that, almost like an extremely vivid hd tv show (ugh). This hyper-reality notion – although great for sports events – also removes all the magical feel of Film (yes, you can call me naive), certainly not a good thing for this type of movies; The Hobbit‘s more dynamic scenes look excruciatingly fake… and, as expected the 3D adds nothing of value.

If this is what 48fps has to offer I don’t want it, but in the end, it’s just a matter of taste and aesthetics, and I prefer the digital (and sonic) aesthetic of Michael Mann, Wes Anderson’s 16mm absurdism or Miguel Gomes’ 1.37:1 B&W in both 35mm and 16mm Tabu.

ps: I strongly dislike the film but that’s another story.
