The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (on DVD)

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
[DVD Hobbit]

I expected a lot from this movie, but it still exceeded my expectations. Martin Freeman, who plays Bilbo, did a wonderful job, as did the rest of the cast. There are some new characters and some returning from the trilogy. As before the music and scenery really contribute to the feel of the story. They have broken the book's story line into three parts, and will again be making three movies. In this first one, Bilbo sets off on an adventure with Gandalf and bunch of dwarves. The dwarves are resolved on re-claiming their home and gold under the Lonely Mountain which had been claimed by the dragon Smaug a few generations before. On this journey Bilbo meets Gollum and finds the One Ring. I highly recommend this movie to anyone. -- recommended by Kristen A. - Gere Branch Library [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try The Hobbit : An Unexpected Journey : Official Movie Guide. by Sibley, Brian; Tolkien, J.R.R.]
