I just watched it because I watched the trilogy at the cinema.
But I wasn't going to pay for 3D anyway.

So in Portugal there's assigned seating at movies?

I'm seeing it tonight.
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

What kind of nerd sits near the front? Having to crane your neck up for 3 hours and not even seeing the whole screen.

Well, I'm back.

It was good enough, I feel like CGI was overused compared to LotR though. Also,    I really disliked Azog being alive and being this villain chasing them around. Even if it was his son following them I would have been more ok with it, but it just felt weird.    I also still didn't like how some of the dwarves looked so un-dwarfy. Namely, Fili, Kili, and Ori, although Kili is the absolute worst offender. I can kinda live with the other two, I would have preferred Thorin to have a more impressive beard, though.

That being said, I thought Martin Freeman did a good job, and I thought    the scene with the trolls was really well done. I also like Radagast's exploration of Dol Guldur.    A lot of the time I had to remind myself that this is essentials a children's story, so not to take things too seriously.

Also, when I saw The Avengers my friend kept telling me that seats would be assigned. (I saw it in Madrid) First time I ever heard of that.

Assigned seats suck big ass donkey balls. Who is the dumbshit that thought of this idea, and why isn't he dead yet?

We've had assigned seats around here ever since I can remember. It's basically first come fist served, the earlier you get the tickets the earlier you can choose places, and there's more to choose from. It punishes faggots who wait until the last moment to get in for the movie.
Although to be fair, most of the times if the theatre is not crowded, people will sit wherever they want either way. Of course, if a person comes and asks you to empty the space for them and they have a valid booking of those places you're sitting on, then it's common decency to move. Other than that, once you're in there any "unbooked" seats are a free for all.
So unless you push your ass into a première or something, odds are the booking of the spot will not make a difference to you.

I just noticed these two comments.

Front row seats are awful, you have to spend the whole movie looking up and I don't feel like having my neck hurt.

The room was full, is all. They try to tell us about the best seats that are still available when you go there.

Now that you mention it... why wouldn't you want the back row, Liz? That's one of the best rows to get. Especially the middle seats.
