The Hobbit

Last week The Hobbit came out. I am sure most of you knew that. :) Daddy took Hannah and me along with several other dads and daughters from our church to see it the day it came out. We were all super excited!! We went to a 11:20 p.m. showing but beforhand we got ice cream sundaes in Riverpark. Those were the biggest ice cream sundaes I have ever seen. Five girls split three and we still didn't finish them. 
  All of us together.

After our ice cream we went to the theater to save our seats. We watched it in 3D, and I must say our 3D glasses were quite stylish. :)
While we were waiting for the movie all of us girls did our hair in elf hairstyles. We were rather successful considering we only had two ponytail holders and two boppy pins to share between us all.

The movie was really good. They did a good job making a movie that comes before movies that were already made. Some people thought they didn't stick with the book very well, but they actually did because most of the things they added came either from the Lord of the Rings or the appendices. The actor who played Bilbo did a really good job with his part. My favorite characters were Bilbo, Kihili (I think that's how you spell it) and Thorin. The problem is I know Kihili and Thorin are going to die in the last movie. :( I still like the Lord of the Rings better because I miss a lot of the characters in those movies, but The Hobbit is great.  I can't wait for them to come out with the next one. (Wait, I am not going to get started on that Hannah III)  I am sorry that this is not a very good movie review but I have never done one before. What do those of you who saw the movie think of it?
Thank you to all the dads who took us. You made a very memorable evening for your daughters and we had a wonderful time with you!! :)

  6. I LOVED IT!!!!! They did change a few things but for the main story they stuck pretty close to the book. We went Friday night at 9:30 with some really close friends. I totally forgot that Thorin dies!!!! How sad! He's my favorite. But none of them seem to come close to Mary and Pippin!
    How was 3d? Some of the scenes were dizzying enough without it!

    Miss you so much!

    1. Nope no one is like Merry and Pippin or Sam for that matter. The 3D was fine. It was kind of hard to focus at first. I heard that the 48fps was better.
      I miss you too!!
