A day later and she was still dilated to just a 1. We're back home, hopefully baby will come on her own, otherwise we're going to explore other options.

uhm .. I have to ask those of you who've seen the Hobbit, did it seem, uhm .. rushed? (no spoilers btw)
Don't get me wrong I liked it, I liked the story, the actors and the mood it set. Almost everything felt in place.
Except everything related to fighting. it felt painful to watch, it felt rushed, I could not focus on anything or see anything, I didn't understand anything and it felt frustrating.
Is it just me? was it the 3D? I could not enjoy the movie because of it and I'm wondering if anyone felt the same.

Do you mean like fight choreography, or? I didn't notice it, at least. Found the movie all in all quite enjoyable, although I do despise 3D - just not enough to go see it in 2D on the smaller screens. :roll:
Most arguments seem to be about the lore changes (which would be spoilerous to discuss in detail), but although it's been a while since I last read the book, I didn't really mind any of the differences. It's quite another thing to tell a story in movie-format after all; I think he did a good job of it.

Opinion & advice time!: As I'm preparing to welcome my son, I've been reminded that I have a family on my father's side.

To be short, my parents separated when I was 11, and my dad died wen I was 16, leaving a 4-year old half-brother behind. I didn't have much contact with my dad's family since the separation, with the exception of my godmother.

The kid has grown up pretty fine, considering he was given to my uncle's custody and eventually adopted when his mother was found unfit (susbtance abuse). The thing is, every time I'm reminded that I should get back in touch with him, I just can't bite the bullet. We had him over at our house for a weekend, and despite everything going decent, I just couldn't keep in touch with, despite being convinced it being the right thing.

I can't help but feel it has something to do with unfinished business with my father, but I'm at a complete loss to find where to begin.

Neither of us are doing much. A couple cards a year, a couple phone calls. Otoh, he's barely 18 last year.

Are you two level on that? I mean, does he know your reasons to find it so difficult? I'd start there.

Nope, never came clean on that, because I never truly dwelled much on it.
Our lives never intersected, and I still have near-zero contact with my father's family.

Do you actually want to spend time with him? (Or even like him as a person for that matter.) Or do you just feel obligated because you happen to share some DNA cells?

I'm not sure, and that's a big part of the problem - the more I think about it, the more I realised I pushed everything about them away as a way to cope with my parent's separation and later, my father's death - but it's 15 years later and I'm still not done coping, from the looks of it.

So yeah, I want to spend time with him, because I want to give him a chance to be more than someone with similar DNA. But I can't get around to do it, precisely because we have similar DNA, and I can't deal with the baggage.

RE: Hobbit; I found the fight choreography a bit rushed an dizzying - I think it has to do with the 3D and both eye snot being on exactly the same page (even with the High Frame Rate) - that he moves were simply too fast for the brain to process as correct.
If talking storywise, I think it was a pretty good pacing, apart from [spoiler]under the mountain, I found the Gollum arc a bit rushed compared to what I remember from the book[/spoiler]

Didn't have any problem like yours with the 3d view. I found that sequence rushed too, and I liked the lore changes so far.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And I kinda made a fool of myself there. Concurrently to the day in general I find I'm in a bad position in an important, career-defining competition here, which kinda set me down way harder than it should, and she spent a good deal of the day cheering me instead. My only relief is that it seemed to lighten her heart as well.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On a third parallel topic, I discovered that my reasons to joke that she's batman only rise. When she was 16 she fled to india, adopted hinduism and stuff. Forward 8 years or so and she's elected/prophecized/chosen/whatever to be a new Sannyasa. She refused, but still today(14 years later) some devout groups pay reverence to her.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On a fourth, her brother and she were chatting and he inquired into our relationship. Eventually she got fed up and said "if you want to know whether Mario saved the princess and advanced a level, yes he did.". What's not to love?

@Sagara: Are there any 'extra' barriers to you spending time with your half brother other than the baggage? Does he live far away, or is there resentment coming from your dad's side of the family too?

@hobbit discussion: I saw it in 2D on the opening night, I might go back and see it in HFR 3D just for the experience, but I'm not the biggest fan of 3D. At first I was somewhat taken aback, because I expected Peter Jackson to try to find some sort of happy medium between the style and tone of his LotR films, and the more whimsical nature of the Hobbit, when he actually stayed pretty true to the book's tone.

I'd say my biggest complaint was that the movie seemed be more about Thorin and the extra back-story that Peter Jackson threw in, while Bilbo was almost more of an accessory to the plot. Any character development that he showed seemed very forced, in my opinion.

But, overall, I did enjoy the movie, not as much as LotR, perhaps, but it was well done.

re: the Hobbit.
What I meant by rushed was too much shit happening in an almost unbelievable short amount of time. My eyes felt pounded by the amount of scattered stuff allover and my mind was racing trying to acquire info that was coming in too fast.
take the first showing of the Erebor. it starts out fine with slow takes of wide scenery and then starts degrading into smaller and smaller frames where in the end stuff happens so fast, if you blink you missed the entire scene. I understand them trying to keep it a mystery and not showing everything .. but really, picking only garbled pieces of stuff because I couldn't focus on anything felt like the image was crap. too much to see and not enough time to see it.

not everything was like that, some scenes had a smaller background, making them easier to digest but .. almost everything that had action and a wider frame like the stuff under the mountain was very hard to watch.

RE:The Hobbit

Are we seriously going to worry about spoilers for a story that was first published in 1937? I find it hard to believe that anyone, especially on this forum, doesn't already know the story. Either by reading the books or by watching the LotR movies.

I mean, really now. We all know that Snape kills Gandalf and Bilbo ends up defeating Arthas and marrying Hermione.

To be fair, there's a LOT of stuff that wasn't ever in the book.
