And I'm all but certain that there findings will show that the bitrate here is a bit lower. Again, thanks for the comment, we're big fans of your work; I'm very sorry if the hyperbolic statements I made offended you -- I'm just trying to hype and promote his edit the best I can. I cannot judge your film before seeing it for myself, but based on Dustin's comments and my own readings of your process and opinion of your own work, I would politely recommend you articulate a vision of your edit more as a creative endeavor on its own rather than an amalgamation of fan edits you liked and therefore better than those that inspired it. I guess that it's hard to do better than this without the original footage! The Extended Edition release of The Lord of the Rings includes four separate tracks for each film in the trilogy, making Jackson and Boyens' Unexpected Journey commentary seem a bit too lonely. In the interest of full disclosure, I didn't notice anything amiss earlier this year when reviewing the theatrical cut, although I also should probably admit the issue didn't bother me even once I verified its presence with subsequent viewings.
Thankfully, Jackson doesn't turn to computers for every challenge. Bilbo mentions Frodo in the part of the prologue that I decided to keep, and I overlaid his mention with the few seconds of screentime he gets. Witness the development, creation and implementation of Hobbiton, Rhosgobel, Rivendell, the Misty Mountains and Goblin Town. Personally, I'm as far away from the editing world as can be: I'm a research lab manager, not an editor. I have a youtube channel with selections of cuts I made, but I want this to be widely known of so I can get the word out. I've removed your name from the trailer because I don't want to claim an association with you that I don't have.
Every one of those films were more violent than any that we saw in the Hobbit films. All told, the cast is a true ensemble in every sense of the word. » Show more for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Blu-ray You will get a notification at the top of the site as soon as the current price equals or falls below your price.

I got many of my ideas from David Killstein's Cut and Maple Film's cut, but I fixed a lot of their mistakes with sound and made the cuts more faithful to the book. Marketplace offers not eligible for Instawatch. The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome Dragon Smaug. But then maybe, just maybe, there are some crazy brutal scenes that were cut from the theatrical version to keep it from being rated-R. That's why I mention fanedit. I would suggest focusing on what separates your edit from alternative ones and what type of audience might gravitate towards yours as opposed to others rather than simply proclaiming yours is the best after splicing together your favorite parts of other editors' films. Fans can also own The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies via purchase from digital retailers.
How many death-defying falls can fourteen travelers survive? Dialogue remains crystal clear and intelligible throughout as well without a lost or muffled line to be found , prioritization is flawless, and Howard Shore's score is sweeping and full, just as it should be. The pacing goes from a calm scene of resolution to dropping us in the middle of a chase- it makes no sense. It's a small quibble, but a chat with the dwarves, Freeman and McKellan, or further members of the cast and crew would have been a boon. I was hoping they would do the same thing with the Hobbit trilogy, but I'll settle for this bluray edition. Not sure why you couldn't just let the song play out an extra 30-40 seconds, especially since it was in the book! More importantly, the entire production team -- from the costume designers to the armor makers, weapon masters, prosthetics artisans and beyond -- is an integral player in the ensemble, as much so as the actors. The rest of the ensemble is too talented for one film, extended or no. I am currently looking into how to make an entry on fanedit.
The extended cut lands somewhere between a 3. Director: Writers: , , , , Starring: , , , , , Producers: , , , , , » The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Blu-ray Review Fun but flawed, the extended cut arrives with a host of special features in tow. Tolkien opposed his works being transformed into action-packed spectacles, and the last act of The Hobbit, more so even than The Return of the King which arguably required spectacle , is puffed up to the point of bursting, with whirling swords, collapsing bridges and towers, an goblin interrogation and chase scene that drags on for far too long, a mountain-pass giant battle that borders on ludicrous not the fight but the fact that the dwarves end up standing amid the giants' legs and a burning treetop showdown that amounts to pure screenwriters' prerogative. The quality of this rip is superb. I had to cut the intro a certain way so as to excise the lengthy prologue. I really enjoyed it though! The Nameless Editor was originally working on this project as something to only share with friends and family, but many of his acquaintances including me urged him to share his work; I have seen every fan edit and I believe his to be the best iteration in terms of length and story-telling.

Buried underneath all the bloat of the trilogy is a movie that is emerging not in the form of one fan-edit, or two, but by the collective creative consciousness of the Tolkien community. After the Dragon leaves the Lonely Mountain, the people of Lake-town see a threat coming. The scene in which Freeman's hobbit awakes to an empty house -- initially relieved and then, all at once, saddened by the silence -- is one of the best acted beats in Jackson's thus far four-film Middle-Earth saga, and makes everything that follows that much more convincing and compelling. Bilbo Baggins is swept into a quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Thorin seems overmatched until an army led by Dwarf-Lord Dain, Thorin's kinsman, approaches from the Iron Hills to the northeast. A: 10 V: 10 English Subtitles: 10 Evinety - The English subtitles are here and work flawlessly. Jackson and Boyens offer up an excellent commentary, and nine hours of Appendices material explores every last aspect of the production.
Despite the fact that there are more flaws than before, not really. Freeman isn't an A-lister or rather wasn't before The Hobbit but his turn as Bilbo establishes him as the film's greatest casting coup. The thirteen dwarfs commanded by Thorin, the burglar Bilbo Baggins and the wizard Gandalf travel to Lonely Mountain to steal the Arkenstone from the dragon Smaug to join the dwarves.

Please don't take offense to my comments but I believe in honest and direct feedback. Not by my estimation, although for the most faithful among you it may be exactly that. Like The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is a melting pot of gracious, self-sacrificing talent both in front and behind the camera. McKellen is Gandalf the Grey, and makes a number of interesting choices, from his perfectly rounded affection for Bilbo to his slight irritation at the hobbit's hesitance to strike out with the dwarves. At least not one that's particularly active. The resulting soundfield is wholly immersive, dropping the listener into the heart of Erebor, the cozy hobbit holes of Hobbiton, the vast expanse of the wild, the midst of a thunderous rock giant battle, the chaos of an underground Goblin city and the center of a cave where a certain magic ring slips from its master's pocket and bounces along the ground. Wow, that's kind of a shitty thing to say, don't you think? I didn't want to remove it completely, because I like the idea of the dwarves teasing Bilbo a little bit, but its a hard sell that the dwarves all rehearsed a minute-long song before coming to bag end.
