Mr. Moviefone: Hobbit 'long slog' for non-fans

  • 'The Hobbit' in theaters now
  • Mr. Moviefone says high frame-rate looks 'amazing,' but movie can be 'long and tedious'
  • "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey"
  • Rated PG-13
  • Starring Sir Ian McKellen and Martin Freeman

HLN's Natasha Curry is a fan of the 'Lord of the Rings' movies.  She even calls herself a "hobbiter."

"Mr. Moviefone" Russ Leatherman says she will like "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."

But what about people who don't know Middle-earth from Timbuktu? For them, Leatherman says "it's a long slog." Almost three hours long, in fact.
