This is, indeed, a time for comparisons...
Am watching The Fellowship of the Ring on the TV at the moment and, again and again, I am struck by the quality of the photography and the images. There is nothing at all in The Hobbit: an Unexpected Journey to compare, with, say, the image of Saruman calling down the storm on the Fellowship or the Fords of Bruinen... and the fight in the 'Orc City' is as nothing compared with the extraordinary Moria sequence, mainly because the former is so bloody repetitive.

Haven't seen The Hobbit yet, but I suspect I'll feel the same. I did keep having Alan Lee flashbacks when watching LotR, but that's no bad thing; his pictures were the defining images of the books for me back in the 70s and 80s.
