Le Hobbit

January 16, 2014

For the most part, it’s been pretty gray and rainy here in Paris. I’ve seen the sun for less than a day twice so far. So I decided to spend one of these rainy afternoons at the movies as I love to experience movie theaters in other countries. There’s a fairly new complex where I’m staying. In fact, it’s two complexes facing each other across the banks of the Canal St. Martin, called MK2 Quai de Loire / Quai de Seine. “Un billet pour Le Hobbie, s’il vous plait,” I said in my proud French. He looked at me and said, “For what movie?” Damn, was my “Le Hobbit” that bad, I thought as I was knocked down a peg or two. The theatre, despite its newness was no match for the Arclight, but it was pretty decent.

Le-HobbitAnd the movie itself was better than the first one, but not even close to the LOTR trilogy. I found myself looking at the French subtitles to see how much I could translate. Which was a good thing because the Orcs and the Elves languages were translated into French subtitles.  I got the gist of what they were saying, but who knew it would be a learning experience.
