Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit’ nearly blew the top off the box office this weekend, raking in a whopping 84.8 million dollars and taking the lead for biggest December opener. Ever. It even beat the last of the ‘Lord of the Rings’ movies which brought in a measly 77.2 million.
But some die hard Tolkien fans and lovers of the fantasy genre are questioning whether or not the movie deserves all the fuss.
‘The Hobbit’ has received no Golden Globe nominations and many critics are saying that at 48 frames per second the movie is more like a nausea-inducing roller coaster ride.
Have you seen the movie? What do you think?
