The Hobbit: Unexpected Journey

0 49

Turnıng to a never-endıng story because of the uncertainity about the director whether to be Guillermo Del Toro or or the director of The Lord of the Rings trilogy Peter Jackson and delays due to legal actions, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is out at last! In 1997, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy met more Turkish readers when it published in Turkish. After four years, the movie adaptations by the director Peter Jackson, gained a big success. This time, Peter Jackson and his crew bring the audience together with “The Hobbit” which tells a story 60 years before The Lord of the Rings and it is actually a prologue to the trilogy. In the first place, Tolkien intented to create The Hobbit for his children but then, the big achievement of the book was also unexpected by our beloved philologist himself. The movie, which was released on 14 December in Turkey, was filmed with RED Epic cameras in 3D  and with 4k definition which has four times more resolution than High Definition technology. Can not be seen in High Frame Rate 48 frames per second in Turkey, it is the first film in the world that was filmed by using this technology. Because of being two times faster than standard 24 fps, this technology creates more life-like effects. That’s why James Cameron was one of the people who watched the film in the very first place in New Zealand world premiere, since he has been also thinking about filming Avatar sequel in higher frame rate than standard 24 fps. This new technology we have just met had some positive reactions for being more life-like which makes you feel like you are living the moments rather than just watching the scenes and it had some negative reactions for being too much life-like that extinguishes fantasy world or making it clear to see the plasticity of the film studio, making you have a headache, feel dizzy/sick as well. If you remember, we also encountered these kind of discussions and different views about 3D technology when we first met it. Peter Jackson’s view was “This is a new technology and people will get used to it” as well. I wish we could watch the film in HFR to be able to claim our own impressions about it, but maybe next time… I watched 24 fps 3D and IMAX 3D versions of the film.
