The problem with doubling the frame-rate in The Hobbit is a problem of scrutiny; you can see all its tricks.

When The Hobbit looks bad, it looks really bad, chiefly during action sequences where CG creatures are featured against non-CG backdrops. One scene stands out in particular, where a group of CG wargs (giant wolf-like creatures) chase our group of non-CG heroes across a grassy plain. The wargs look like CG wargs, while the dwarves look like Richard Armitage et al running around a....well, a grassy plain. Our heroes look so real and present in that field, that the creatures look impossibly artificial in comparison. There's irony that such technical sophistication (and indeed, state-of-the-art-CG-effects) have wound up looking like a film student's first stab at combining practical effects with digital.

Anybody seen the Metacritic rankings for the Hobbit? Part is getting pretty average-ish reviews so far, definitely lower than what any Lord of the Rings movie got. A lot of film critics seem to think it's overly long. Has Peter Jackson overdone himself this time?

Yes, the screening was in 48fps AND in 3D with those silly glasses over my corrective glasses ( I looked like a real nerd ).
Luckily, I didn't have any problems watching the film, in its entirety.
