I went to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey a week ago.

Peter Jackson has put a lot in to plumping out one third of a pretty short tale with erroneous background information and dwarfs singing stuff. But what really let me down about The Hobbit was that it was so easy to see how fake it was. The image on the screen was so clear, and with the 3D making the scene look so real, you could see the actors' make-up and how the set was constructed.

I don't go to watch a movie about hobbits and dragons to get bombarded with "reality". I say bring this type of movie back to 2D and the normal number of frames per second and let us have more room to make-believe.
