    The Hobbit An Unexpected tale of two movies


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Did you see 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey?' Share your review here.
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    We attended two screening of the Hobbit An Unexpected Journey and we found it to be just that. Not for the reasons that you might expect. We first attended the 3D IMAX version of movie at 9 in the morning. We got there early in very cold weather for Los Angeles and the theater wasn't even open yet. We were greatly disappointed in what we saw. It seemed to go on forever and the 3D could best described at 3D gone wrong. People were restless going in and out of the theater and watching their watches.
    We then went to lunch and came back two hours later to see the same film in 48FPS. It was like we had attended a completely different film. Our intention was just to see what 48FPS looked like then leave. We found what we saw was so impressive that we sat threw a film that had us checking our watches for how much time left before the film ended and never once looked at them during this screening.
    People seemed to be very restless and with no outward emotion during the IMAX 3D version but during the 48 FPS screening there was laughter at the gross out scenes, oohs and ahas during the action sequences and applause at the end.
    It was like we had set threw two completely different films shot at the same time by the same people. The difference between night and day.
    It seems that Peter Jackson has solved the problems that have plagued 3D action films and we are glad that we got to see the dawning of a new age in film production with a project that we look forward to seeing the next chapter in the series.
