Hobnobbing!


Bloggie friends!!

I did one exciting thing last week! I went to see The Hobbit in glorious 3D and loved, loved, LOVED it!! 

I say ignore all the garbage about the technicalities of how it was filmed or what frame was used or the length of the film blah blah blah. 

I say go to the cinema where this is showing, put your most unflattering 3D glasses on, bring an extra cushion and just revel in the fantasy, magic and the cutest littlest hedgehog ever to act on screen! 

Better than Lord of the Rings? Ya betcha!

Charlie and Gumtree say: We are NOT impressed with today's blog post!


Have a great week everyone!

Glad you enjoyed it, Kitty! I did as well. It was rich, beautiful, and fun.

Manzanita said...

Thanks for the review. I'm in the mood for something cute and ugly glasses.
If so, I suppose Charlie and Gumtree are writing their own post. :)

Mark said...

My do they ever look unimpressed. I guess they're upset that you talked a lot about Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit and barely mentioned them.

klahanie said...

Aha, well I just visualised a cat in the cinema wearing 3D glasses!

My human tells me that Tolkien based his characters on some of the locals of this town we live in. We are not surprised by that!

Beth Zimmerman said...

I haven't seen it yet but I hope to do so soon. Hugs to you and your kitties, Miss Jenn!

Brian said...

I am glad you had a good time at the movie! Howdy Charlie, howdy Gumtree!

Prancer Pie said...

Our Mommy loves to hear movie reviews, and thought it was an excellent post. We even enjoyed the gratuitous kitteh pic! Happy Monday!

Stephen Tremp said...

Better than Lords of the Ring? Wow! But cats are hard if not possible to impress!

DWei said...

I also really enjoyed the Hobbit but that might be because I really like Martin Freeman.

Helena said...

Well, I wasn't sure I was going to see The Hobbit but you've convinced me, and I'm sure I'll have fun. And my own kitty is never impressed with anything I do, so she would get along great with Charlie and Gumtree.

Cezar and Léia said...

Hello dear friends!
My mom Léia also loved The Hobbit, it's a great movie!
Yesterday we have snow all day long, but not today.Anyway it's freezing outside, better go now for a nap inside my blanket!
purrs and love to you!
Luna - WE LOVE LUNA

Mr Puddy said...

Charlie and Gumtree,
I impressed both of you...Take the whole screen !
Well done ; )
xox

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Judging from your faces, The Hobbit probably didn't have kitties!

Patsy said...

You liked it then, Kitty? ;-)

joanne fox said...

Gosh - those cats appear to be sitting awfully close together and not squabbling! Guess there has been great progress in feline relations over there.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Well, *I'm* impressed that Charlie and Gumtree are SO close together. Charlie must secretly like him. LOL.

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

Tamago said...

My husband wants to see that movie! I was not big fan of Lord of the Rings so hesitant to go... But it was better? Maybe I should go see! Charlie and Gumtree are very cute together :-)

Jemi Fraser said...

Those cats look completely in charge!! :)

I haven't seen the Hobbit yet -still talking the hubby into it :) I haven't seen any of the 'new' 3D shows yets - my eyes are a little wonky & I couldn't see the old 3D - not sure about the newer stuff :)

Natalie Aguirre said...

So awesome, Kitty, that you got to see it. I'm probably the only one who hasn't yet, though I really want to.

Simon Kewin said...

It only had 2 Ds when I saw it but it was fantastic so I might go and see it again with the extra D if I can!

Teresa Ashby said...

Glad you loved the Hobbit :-)

Charlie and Gumtree are such pretty kitties :-) x

Fenris and Family said...

Mommy wants to go see this so bad, but the guy things are uninterested.

When it comes out on DVD the Mom will probably get it so we can all enjoy it from the comfort of our living room half chair.

We all wants to sit in it with Mommy. So it's a good thing she got a BIG chair.

Rene said...

We aren't into the Hobbit series of movies, but we know lots of people are! And what a lovely photo of the boys!

Claudia Del Balso said...

OMG! Taking a hiatus from blogging is not fun because catching up is hard to do. Is Gumtree a new addition to the family? He's so adorable. Glad you enjoyed the movie. Haven't seen it or any movies for that matter. :(
See you soon!

Janet Johnson said...

I have not yet seen it, but it's on my list. But you're making me antsy! I'd better make time. :)

Have a great day!

Hart Johnson said...

What good helpers you have. I can't watch anything in 3D--those nutty glasses go poorly with my regular ones. The Hobbit was great though!

Words A Day said...

Agreed! I went with my young sons, they loved it, so did I:)

Tracy Jo said...

I just love the kitties! Thanks for the recommendation of The Hobbit. Wasn't going to go but just might now. :-) Happy Monday!

Lydia Kang said...

I've heard so much criticism of this, but you're right. I should lay it aside and just have fun with it.

Michael Di Gesu said...

Love the pic and comment... LOL.

I haven't seen the HOBBIT yet... I hope to get to it this week. It's been frigidly cold in Chicago, so when the temps rise I will be at the theatre.

Thanks for the review.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We hope you have a great week boys and Jenn writes some great stuff.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Ginger Jasper said...

Mum and dad didnt know if they should try this or not as not the usual type of film but maybe they will now.. Hugs GJ x

Clarissa Draper said...

I haven't seen it but I do like Hedgehogs.

KarenMcG said...

They may not be impressed with today's blog post, but they are sure sitting in front of your web page. Looking pretty cute there, too.

Jamie Burch said...

Ooh...now I really have to go see it! Gotta love wearing those sill glasses, but so worth it.

Hope you have a fabulous week!

Maggie M said...

We kitties don't care about movies. Mumsy and Popsy have not been out to see a movie in seems like maybe a hundred years. They watches all the movies at home. Hugs and nose kisses

Jennifer Shirk said...

Oooh, I want to see!! I bet 3D was AWESOME!

Esme said...

Have you ever read the book? I am glad you enjoyed the movie.

fairyhedgehog said...

So glad you enjoyed it!

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

Couldn't agree more! It's bloody brilliant!

mshatch said...

Look at those good kitties sharing the desk! Admittedly, Charlie doesn't look overly impressed, but no fighting, no hissing, just feline civility :)

ABBY said...

Glad to hear you enjoyed it!
Next time you need to take Charlie and Gumtree with you! :)

Carolyn Abiad said...

We went during the holiday break. I'm not familiar with all the cinematics, but I enjoyed the regular, no frills version. No imax, no 3D. Pure Hobbit. :)

And...hello, Gumtree! How nice to meet you. *waves to Charlie too*

Stina Lindenblatt said...

My 10 year old saw it and loved it. I didn't think he would last though the movie since it finished after 10 pm. I haven't seen it yet. Oh well.

Medeia Sharif said...

I hope to see the film.

Charlie and Gumtree probably wanted to see it, too. They're only playing it cool.

William Kendall said...

I loved it! Went back to see it again.

Charlie and Gumtree just don't find dwarves all that impressive.

Katie Isabella said...

Oh what a wonderful treat! How fortunate you were. Our family has yet to see it but I think my human brother will be going. Xxxoo

Life 101 said...

I really want to see that. I've heard good things about it from people I trust.
Thanks Kitty.

Lynda R Young said...

I still haven't dragged myself to the cimema to see it. I find it really hard not to pull movies apart because of my 3D animation background... but that's part of the fun of seeing them! ;)

The Chair Speaks said...

Did you watch that show too, Charlie, Gumtree?

Theresa Milstein said...

Everyone seems to be raving about the movie. You're the first to recommend additional cushioning.

Now you have two cats by that computer? I'm impressed you could write the blog post.

I thought you'd like to see this. It's brilliant. If you can't see US version, then look up Dog Friend vs. Cat Friend.

orbit said...

Looks like you two have picked the perfect spot for attention!

Creepy Query Girl said...

I heard really great things about this movie too! Sounds like it's entertaining- which is really, all it should be!

LTM said...

Charlie and Gumtree are SO CUTE! :D I have not seen the Hobbit, but I know I will. Hubs is a HUGE Tolkien fan. I'm not such a huge orc fan, so I'm not looking forward to that. :P

Hope you're having a lovely week~ <3

Cat said...

Sounds furry furry exciting!!!! How were dem little peeps in da movie? Did they get all up in your grill in 3D? MOL

Bestest purrs

Basil xoxo >^.^<

Nerissa said...

Maybe Old Kitty will rent it for you when it comes out on DVD so that you can watch too... purrs

Romance Book Haven said...

It was amazing! I loved it!

Nas

Tammy Theriault said...

Its on my to do list!

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Better than Lord of the Rings? Wow. I'm looking forward to seeing it, especially after your lovely review. But I guess Charlie and Gumtree don't agree? No kitties in the movie? : )

Nerissa said...

Hey there! Nissy here!

You've just gotta come visit me on Nerissa's Life and read "Golden Globes... who needs 'em?" 'cause there's a special little somethin' waitin' for you there.

Purrs,
Nissy

susanjanejones said...

Thanks for the review Kitty and don't your charlie and gumtree look adorable?

Deniz Bevan said...

You know what's funny? I saw it in the 48fps 3D version and I really didn't see what the difference was. Later I heard people saying it was more like watching a video game than a movie. I guess I can see that - I don't play video games so really wouldn't know. But the images were clear and sharp as anything!

Soggibottom said...

I think you have competition Charlie cos from what I have just seen, Gumtree has guzumped yer ref photo shot :-)
Looks like ol Frankie de tabby has competition that's for sure :-)
Thanks for the recommendation ref film... Don't yer just love that evil little hobbit come gobblin, ring guy.. yet yer kinda of love him too. Can't wait to see it, we will only be able to see it in hd.. ah, gonna miss out...
Guys you both look adorable and I notice someone seems as if they have settled down ... ah I talk cat too.. I have to when Frank is so unpredictable :-) luvs.
Freya Rose Blossom X and Frankie de tabby :-) x x x

Katz Tales said...

I'll go take a look. I loved the latest LOTR adaptations!

Pasha said...

Chralie and Gumtree seem to be getting along great!

Glad you enjoyed your movie!

Pk Hrezo said...

Here here! I want to see it again! I saw it in 3D too and loved loved loved it. I've got a non-romantic crush on Peter Jackson. lol

Seriously, I cant wait to see it again!!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Old Kitty - I must get to see one 3D film .. to see what the fuss is about - so I will definitely check a film out - and I'd like to see the Hobbit again .. I did love the film ...

Gumtree and Charlie - I'm not surprised they're a bit upset and are hogging the computer .. or perhaps they're hobnobbing with that personal compute thing ...

Hope you're week's ok with or without said snow ... cheers Hilary

KarenMcG said...

Well we're impressed with you two, Gumtree and Charlie.

April McLeod said...

Yes, what do your cats care about the movies when they've got you to entertain them? Or should I say they've got each other for entertainment?

Gail Crane said...

68 comments!! Goodness, Kitty, I'd no idea there are so many bloggie cat lovers out there!

Glad you enjoyed Hobbit.

Deborah said...

Thanks for visiting!! I was so relieved about Winston..Crazy
You have a new kitty!! Gumtree, cute!! Charlie must be happy :)
Gumtree is a good looking kitty.
I missed a lot the last few months!
Have a great day!
xxoo
Deborah

Susan Fields said...

Better than Lord of the Rings? Then I'd better go see it!

The Golden Eagle said...

Great to hear you enjoyed the film! So many people are complaining about how it was shot; nice to see someone liked it. :)

meowmeowmans said...

That movie sure does sound amazing, Old Kitty! But we can definitely see that Charlie and Gumtree are NOT impressed. :)

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

I probably won't see it but I am glad you liked it! I keep checking back to see if you have added "Follow by email" and alas....no.....that saddens me :(

Jackee said...

Revel is a good word for it! I loved it. I'm just sad the 3D version was gone before I made it to the theater.

Have a great day, Jen. Hugs!

Ellie Garratt said...

Now I definitely have to see it!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I am so behind in movie going and even TV watching! I'll have a lot to catch up on in life--moving has been a big task. I'm finally able to take a breath..so good to catch up with you today!

Madeleine Sara said...

I loved the book when I read it eons ago, while I couldn't get into the LoR books. I was expecting The Hobbit film to be more like the LoR film trilogy, so was surprised by the differences.

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I can't wait to see it!
