I saw The Hobbit a couple weeks ago. It was great. When they started singing the Misty Mountains song, I got chills. Fantastic movie!

Yeah, definitely a fulfilling scene for most any fan.

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey"......The movie is amazing. The vividness of the colors and light and movement is something to behold. The scenery is, of course, gorgeous. The acting is light, fun, playful, dramatic, and moving while also managing to stay true to the original story. Martin Freeman is great as the younger version of "Bilbo" and is very believable. The merry band of dwarfs are well played and you somehow get to know each of them by the end of the film. Too many to mention but of course the handsome Richard Armitage(Thorin) and sexy Aidan Turner(Kili) are major standouts. Ian McKellen is luminous as "Gandalf" and Hugo Weaving as "Elrond" is splendid once again. It is great to once again see the characters of Elrond, older Bilbo, Sarumon, Galadriel, and Frodo. The esquisite Cate Blanchett back in the role of "Galadriel" is a delight. She portrays that character full of grace, beauty, and mystery!! The scenes with Galadriel and Gandalf are fantastic and I loved seeing actors Blanchett and McKellen in scenes together. The special effects, art direction, music score, cinematography, and makeup effects are all absolutely great. As for the main story, well, apart from doing a prelude that reprises the role of Frodo and older Bilbo Baggins, it pretty much stays true to the text. Also featured are some great action/battle scenes, fun and campy moments, and some nicely done emotional scenes. This first installment of "The Hobbit" is a gem!! Nominated for 3 Academy Awards(visual effects, production design,and makeup), I think this film deserved at least another 4 nominations!!

10/10

I agree. Colorful, gorgeous, epic, exciting storytelling, and just a ton of fun.

That scene gave me chills as well.

9/10 .. Loved it! It's different then the LOTR trilogy .. But very similar at the same time. I'm interested in seeing how Smaug looks.

I love the soundtrack.

To me, this fits in with the Middle Earth films perfectly. I'm happy this turned out to be fantastic.

Not only that - I hope we will see some epic battles as well, though I think this will happen in the third part.

Blu-ray and DVD release date announced. Mark March 19th.


The extended cut will be expected in the last quarter of this year and might cross the release of the second installment, The Desolation Of Smaug.

I will wait til December for the extended cut.

There will be at least epic battle.

The Battle of Five Armies.

It will probably be along the scale of Helm's Deep, not Minas Tirith.
