Movie Review: "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey"

The first reason I was reluctant to watch The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was when I learned that a book less than the size of ONE of The Lord of the Rings Trilogy books, was being stretched to fill THREE movies.

The second was that poster.

I mean, seriously?

(Editor's Note: I missed the first 2-5 minutes I think, since Carib shockingly started pretty much on time.)

The movie is GOOD. It was the very last movie I watched in an epic movie year of 2012, and it did not disappoint.

Dwarves are awesome! The lead Dwarf, Thorin Oakenshield (played by Richard Armitage) is a mega star!

I forgot that young Bilbo Baggins (played by Martin Freeman) is soooo much more interesting than Frodo!

Gandalf (played by Ian McKellen) is more instrumental in this!

And of course: Gollum (played by Andy Serkis) is quite unnerving.

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
