The Hobbit starts out with a 90 at BFCA.

Oh no, McTreebeard! Shield your eyes!
"Keep yoah paint outta my pahhking spot aaaahhhht depaaahhhhhtment!!!"
A Turkish film critic who's living in the USA said on Twitter, press screenings were held in NY and LA for The Hobbit and he says de doesn't hear good things. Now I'm worried.
The Hobbit will be my fanboy movie of the year and I admit it.
It will be that movie where I wil say "eff you critics" and not read a single review until I see it. I will love it like I did the LOTR films and of course my judgement of the Hobbit will be clouded by my love for them. And you know what? I'm fine with that.
I will not check metacritic scores, RT scores, BFCA scores, Cinemascores, ebert, scott, no one. I will see this movie, adore the scene (hopefully "scenes") where Cate Blanchett appears, love jackson, Freeman, McKellen, Weaving, Bloom, Cumberbatch and all the others for their work and put it on my top 10 list.
But I am honest as well. I know I'm a fanboy and I will proudly write a disclaimer saying that on my review...
Oh, I almost forgot...
eff you, critics.
I heard in the wind that someone dreamed a man laughed that a mouse saw a word about the buzz on the penguin film critic pre-buzz blog feed with predictions of the reaction to the hashtags for the reviews of the reviews of the buzz tweets from critics who laughed more than critics who didn't and they thought The Hobbit might get some tweets that felt it was worth tweeting about.
But don't freak out!

THE HOBBIT'in NY ve LA basın gösterimleri dün yapıldı. Pazartesine kadar eleştiri ambargosu var. Ama pek de iyi şeyler duymuyorum.

Translation would be like this: "The Hobbit's press screenings were held in LA and NY yesterday. There's an ambargo till Monday. But, i don't hear good things."
this is his account's link
Damn. I hope he just happened to have heared the negative voices but the majority likes it.

So apparently he just responded to someone with:
"Seven de var. Büyütmeye gerek yok. Pazartesinden itibaren ak koyun, kara koyun belli olacak zaten. Teşekkürler."
"Some loved it too. Nothing to make fuss about. After Monday everything will be clear anyway. Thanks."
Ugh, why am I engaging in this? I need to find something to do until Monday.
What a bunch of assholes.

I wonder if the press screenings for this will be at 48 frames per second? I assume they will be.
But You're right, I love that the critics loved ROTK and I should praise them for that. Well done, critics!!!
Will there be a Premiere here in the US also, I know that they have a screening but, what about a actual premiere

Just saw a review of the Hobbit in German tv.
The reviewer mentioned that it is overlong and overpacked with action, just like other blockbusters...
Not a very deep review but i wanted to mention it.
Got these tweets from another board:
First reactions from the screening in LA today.

Hobbit screening - visually stunning. The beginning of it all. Peter Jackson Q & A - what a mind!Matthew P. Spill @matthewspill
Hobbit was great! 48fps is weird. Neat but not necessary. Can't wait for next December!Jason T. Clark @Jason_T_Clark
#Hobbit was fantastic!!! So happy to be back in Middle-Earth. This is a must see. 48Fps is interesting, but overall I didn't care for it.
Also, 3D was some of the best I've seen. Looking forward to seeing it again in IMAX 3DNicholas DeNitto @NicksMovies
Just saw The Hobbit and was STUNNED. See this movie in 3D at 48 FPS! It looks incredible!Scott Squires @scott_squires
#hobbit 3D 48fps works. Won't be confused with cheap video. Less stereo artifacts. Only a few shots with odd motion. (speed changes?)Marques T. Owens @mothemogul
@JonasRJakobsen It was good. Great beginning to a new trilogy. A bit goofy at times....Brian Duffield @BrianDuffield
I dug the hell out of The Hobbit. It's sillier but super fun.
EASILY best blockbuster of 2012.Antoi Antzoulides @AntoiAntz
Wow. Just saw The Hobbit and I'm exhausted. They journey to middle earth has wiped me out!Jade Moser @jademoser
'The Hobbit' was amazing! Visually stunning, mesmerizing, superb acting.. If you're in the guild circuit, rsvp for the next screening asap!VeronicaCorningstone @corganight
The Hobbit was AWESOME! !!

Sounds like it would've made a great three hour single film.
Elessar, what board was this?
