    My Hobbit Review

    Got a chance to see The Hobbit early, but I don't have TRS to talk about what I thought!  Sure, I'll be discussing it on Attack of the Show tomorrow (G4 network, check local listings), but who wants to wait for that?  Check out my spoiler-free review below:

    Thanks Jeff. Exactly what I wanted to know. Glad I can still find your reviews online. They're always very honest.

    I hope you make a habit out of this. You should also link to your YouTube channel so that I can subscribe.

    Thank you for this Jeff! My wife and I are so excited! And its good to see you on camera again!

    Wasn't going to watch it in 3d 48fps but you've convinced me.

    Being a LOTR super fan, I was really looking forward to this. Now that it got the "loved by Jeff" seal of approval, I can't wait to go home for the holidays and see it. Watching movies in France without dubbing is tough. :)

    Hope you find the time to do more of these videos.

    The biggest complaint I've heard was that a lot of filler was added to turn The Hobbit into three three-hour movies, making the story feel like it never fully picked up in this first film. Thanks for doing more reviews, always good to hear your opinions!

    Thanks for doing this!
    I highly respect your opinions on films. Please keep doing this!
    I would definitiley watch a mini version of TRS hosted by you.
    Perhaps just focusing on films... Consider doing it!

    Thanks for doing this review. I'm a big TRS fan, and I missed getting your perspective on movies. Especially geek tent-pole movies like The Hobbit.

    Really glad to hear you liked it too, as it seems like every other review I've seen has a negative tinge to it.

    Thanks for the review Jeff. Please keep them coming as I value your movie opinions.

    PS. I grew up (here in the UK) with part of the Tolkien family as my neighbours but I'm ashamed to say that I've never actually read the books!

    Great idea, Jeff. Much appreciated. Nice review and I hope you do more of these.

    Jeff, PLEASE continue to do video reviews like this. Your obvious passion is infectious and now I'm genuinely excited again to see The Hobbit.
    Love hearing you talk about films. That Dave Chen fella' should make you a permanent part of the SlashFilmCast.

    Hey Jeff good to see you back. Sad about TRS but glad you will be on AOTS tomorrow. Also I am very glad that you are keeping busy I listen to Weekend Confirmed every week. Its awesome that you liked the movie because your opinion means alot to me being a big LOTR fan. Now im even more excited to watch this movie. When I do I plan on putting it on my channel which is called Geeked Out With Steven- http://www.youtube.com/user/GeekedOutSim Hope you can show me a little support Thanks Jeff

    Quite sad not seeing the fist bump at the end...

    Very happy to know that your articulate and considered reviews can still be seen.

    Also, more awesome fantasy movies, woo hoo!!

    Hej there, so nice to see your review even without TRS. Thanks, Please keep it up. Even by yourself the reviews are totally rad. Greetings from the netherlands

    Jeff, please keep doing these. I've always valued your opinion and would love to hear more from you. Especially board games!

    Love to Love your Love of Loving things!

    Jeff, amazing review I loved it! It's really tough to not have TRS around anymore to hear your thoughts so please keep up the blog posts! I was a little worried after reading the critic reviews about the Hobbit and I was just thinking "I wonder what Jeff thought of it..." Thanks again for the review!

    THANK YOU JEFF. I saw The Hobbit yesterday and have NO idea why anyone would say anything bad about it. It was so beautiful and fun. It blew me away. It's right up there with Fellowship and I can not wait for the next two! Can't wait to see it in 48 FPS.

    December 13, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNick Stevens

    Yay! More Jeff! Very glad you are doing this.

    TRS Lives!
