What did Glenn think of The Hobbit?


Last night, Glenn attended a press screening of the new movie from Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, "The Hobbit". Much of the buzz around the film has focused on a new film filming technique where the film actually has a higher frame rate. Some have panned the move for giving the film a hyper-realistic feel and claiming it looks like a daytime soap opera, but others have claimed its an innovative new technology that totally changes film. What did Glenn think?

"I was really concerned when they were going to do the high frame rate because that wrecks this movies. However, this is a partnership with Red cameras, and Red makes all of the best cameras now for movies," Glenn said.

Glenn explained that he is currently trying to use new cameras in technology to have television with a lower frame rate in order to make it look more like a movie, and jokingly said Peter Jackson was trying to do the opposite by making movie frame rates more like television.

"I'm currently trying to get a slower frame rate for television which you can't do. I'm trying to pioneer some technology to make television look like movies. And here comes Peter Jackson trying to make movies look like TV."

"They have reinvented 3D. This 3D looks unlike anything I have ever seen. It is crystal clear, and the guys jump out at you. And the backgrounds are crystal clear. There's no fuzziness to them at all. And it's magic," he said.  "I think it's a total reinvention of 3D.  It is spectacular."

But beyond just the technology behind the movie, Glenn was interested in the film because he was a huge fan of The Hobbit books. Thankfully, he thought the film lived up to the standards set by the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

"Really good.  Really, really good.  As good as 'Lord of the Rings'.  Peter Jackson is phenomenal," Glenn said.

Glenn did warn that parents of young kids shouldn't bring their children to the movie as there are some pretty terrifying and violent parts with orcs and other monsters. But otherwise he thought the film was great and even surpassed the book.

"You remember when you used to say that the movie is not as good as the book? I don't think you say with Peter Jackson movies," Glenn said.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
