So, you plan on seeing The Hobbit over the coming holidays, eh?
Eager? Excited? Enthusiastic? All of these things and more? Well, the long awaited release date is finally here, so get your ticket and get in line like the rest of us!
The only question that remains unanswered is: which line will you be in?
That’s right. Beginning Friday, December 14, you’ll be able to experience The Hobbit in a plethora of theatres that house an enormous difference in cinematic technology – both is sight and in sound. Did you know that this film is the first to be released in as many as seven different formats? HFR 3D, IMAX 3D, standard 2D Ultra AVX theatres…the list goes on. But the newest and <a-hem> most precious of the non-visual technologies The Hobbit employs has got to be Dolby’s recently developed ATMOS surround sound experience.
Find out what it is and where you can experience it after the jump!
The latest episode of South Park helps to explain a phenomenon I’ve never personally understood: the ongoing obsession with musical theatre. I’d say Trey Parker’s well qualified to enlighten us… he’s won 9 Tonys. But more importantly, I learned why so many men put up with taking their women to musicals; the magic of subtext!
Starring my favourite adult South Park character Randy Marsh, Broadway Bro Down pits him against some of the most hardcore musical composers in the industry; and also reveals that despite recent events, Randy and Sharon’s marriage is stronger than ever… thanks to blow jobs. Oh, and vegans suck.
