Hobbit was great! This time movie played succesfully to the end. The beginning was a bit slow, perhaps, but then the story was accelerating every minute and the most orthodox fan of action movies wouldn’t complain about the scenes in the kingdom of goblins. I don’t know why some people don’t like it, what else did they expect? This is old good Tolkien, and not “Crime and Punishment”. I’m still impressed by visual quality of the movie. Some scenes were rendered so beautifully, that now (this “now” will last for a few weeks, I guess) I feel safer when drawing something else. Old Grimm’s fairytale this time. And a little experiment with mixing paint and pulverized pastel stick.
