To all the Peter Jackson fans, The Hobbit trilogy is worth a watch. If you were a follower of Jackson’s film adaptions of J.R.R Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings then you won’t be disappointed with what he’s done with the beloved series’ prelude, The Hobbit. These films have some of the most realistic scenes to date, thanks to Jackson pioneering the mainstream use of 48 fps (frames per second). With typical movies at 24 fps, you’ll instantly be captivated by the sharper, high-definition picture, smoother action scenes and an entire film that looks incredibly life-like. Take your final journey back to middle earth, this time with a group of thirteen dwarves, including: dwarf king Thorin Oakenshield, wizard Gandalf, and hobbit Bilbo Baggins, as they try to regain their lost Dwarven kingdom from the dragon Smaug.
