Movie Review #4 – The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneyAs I write this I’ve gained some knowledge in the art of writing stories. I haven’t yet read the Hobbit by J R R Tolkien. But I’m going to and soon.

But mostly I want to trouble you and tell you how good this movie was.

The Hobbit is the prequel to The Lord of the Rings. And you must not miss it. I’m amazed and wonder why I waited so long.

Mostly I’m more amazed how a 310 page book, could be divided into two parts. The first part is the one I just watched. I realize maybe it is for the best. See, when you turn a novel into a movie, it loses a lot of content and power and this one just kept me occupied because as I guess, almost none of it was cut out.

Bilbo Baggins played by Martin Freeman is my favorite character, mostly because he is perfectly fit for playing Bilbo Baggins and maybe also because I love to watch his exploits as the modern day Dr. Watson, in the BBC TV show Sherlock.

It greatly intrigues me and makes me question, on how great a story teller Tolkien was. More of all, Peter Jackson, the director, just made it happen, the movie, he did it. The same way he did with The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. He is an amazing director and for what he has achieved with his films, is something to be never forgotten.

Mostly I want to praise the epicness of this movie. ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ will delight you, shock you, astound you and take your breath away with every second that passes watching the movie.

For an almost 3 hour movie in today’s world, it wins. Hands down. Hats off.

Eagerly waiting for the next movie ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’, which is going to be released at the end of this year.

A note for Sherlock fans: Benedict Cumberbatch is going to be in it, which is perfect because he acts as the modern day Sherlock just as Dr.Watson. Two great actors of a popular TV show, together. Coincidence? I think not.
