    Fellowship of the Ring is also my #1 film on Flickchart.

    I may be among the few that found The Hobbit to be a vast improvement on the original three films. While the epic scale of the original three, combined with great acting (rivaling, but not beating or losing against that of The Hobbit), and a wonderfully rich story (one of the few aspects where the originals top The Hobbit) give the original films a few bonuses, I found them to be somewhat lacking. I found myself more bored than excited a lot of the time, though the third film was much more fast paced. The Hobbit, I found, rarely felt dull. I actually thought the pacing was great, and the humor kept things lively and engaging. I can’t see myself re-seeing the original three anytime soon, but I’d be more than happy to return to The Hobbit.

    Fellowship is the better film, no argument there. But The Hobbit was more fun to watch. It did drag on in some spots for me, but not enough knock the film for it.
