This is the actual review part of my article on The Hobbit. For my verdict on whether or not seeking out an HFR (48fps High Frame Rate) screening is worth it, click HERE to read all about it.
It is also worth mentioning that there may be very slight SPOILERS in the following review so if you don't want to know anything about what happens in the film do not read until after you've seen it.
So, now that I’ve seen The Hobbit (in HFR 3D as promised here) I will let you know what I thought about it. I am going to split this into two parts: firstly, in regards to the 48fps technology and then secondly, a review on the film itself.

So The Hobbit has just been released and I have plans to go and see it on Sunday. However there is one question that has been floating around. No, not whether or not I should watch it in 3D or not (I, unlike some people have zero problem in watching films in 3D and actually quite enjoy the experience); but rather whether or not I should watch it in HFR.
Argo is the recently declassified true story of a CIA operative given the task of safely escorting out six American embassy workers hiding out in the city of Tehran during the 1980 American embassy hostage situation in Iran. The stranger-than-fiction part of this story was that the plan to rescue them was to do so under the cover of posing as a Canadian film crew scouting for exotic locations for a made-up Star Wars rip-off sci-fi epic named “Argo”.
In equal parts tense drama and lightly comedic Hollywood satire, Argo remains entertaining throughout - although some have complained about how parts of the story were omitted or exaggerated from the actual facts of what happened. Is this a good or bad thing? Here are my thoughts. (NOTE: may include story spoilers).

This week’s track is by Kristine with the song Modern Love taken from her newly release EP of the same name.
I love the 80s sound she has, both in terms of her amazing vocals (straight out of the era - reminiscent of singers such as Stevie Nicks and Cyndi Lauper) and the catchy synth production that captures the nostalgic sense of optimistic joy that a lot of the music of that decade had.

Alarm goes off, waking me up at an ungodly hour in preparation for a full day’s worth of films at Leeds International Film Festival’s Fanomenon Anime Day 2012.
Get up. Get ready.
Give the cat some extra food to last her through the day. Set off.
Oops - my housemate’s forgotten his ticket at home.
Turn back, pick up ticket, set off again.

You may have been wondering, How come you haven’t done a film roundup recently? I mean, the last one I did was for April of earlier this year.
Its not that I haven’t been watching films - I always watch films. LOTS of them. So I guess it’s time I catch up quickly with another ‘turbo’ film roundup, keeping it all short and snappy like a terrapin – much like I did the last time.
So are you ready? To quote Frenzy The NinjaB3ar: The sound horns! So Let’s Go!

This week’s track is Primadonna, and comes from Marina & The Diamonds' second album entitled Electra Heart. I was actually listening to this a lot a good few weeks ago, but definitely feel it should be mentioned again now.
