    I saw the midnight showing of The Hobbit. It was awesome. The theater was 95% full. We were lucky that we got there an hour early and got seats because the theater filled up fairly quickly. I enjoyed the film and some characters that weren’t in the book (at least I don’t remember them) but my dad says they were mentioned made an appearance. Another wizard that started with an R and some orcs chasing Thor made the movie with some extra battle scenes.

      Given that I understand the events of the “Hobbit” occur before the “Lord of the Rings”, I would assume there should have been some “Ah-Ha” moments, some attempts to restate themes glossed over in the first set of movies, and some histories we did not hear the first time around.

      You mentioned Orcs, but does Peter Jackson do a good job reintroducing us to aspects of this world that we may not have fully understood the last time?

        Yes he does a good job of re-introducing aspects that weren’t fully understood. I don’t want to say anything in paticular because I don’t want to ruin it for consumers who haven’t seen it yet but yes he does an excellent job.

        The Star Trek trailer was way to long and to me focused on the cinematography.
