In the interest of full disclosure, I didn't notice anything amiss earlier this year when reviewing the theatrical cut, although I also should probably admit the issue didn't bother me even once I verified its presence with subsequent viewings. In the book, we experience everything through Bilbo's eyes, which creates a strong connection between the reader and the main part. That said, it is far from childish, and although it is a lighter, more fun affair, there are still many parts within the story that an adult audience can relate to. But since I didn't like the additions, I'm doubting whether a third film is necessary after all but I suspend my judgment until 2014. Fine textures are refined and exceptionally well-resolved.
I blame the film for this because the scenes involved in the exposition were way too see-through. There's just one -- I'd say minor, some would say major -- difference. That's for the reasonable job with the comedy, design, and things not related to story and pacing with the exception of Gollum and the cave scene. Armitage is excellent too, even though Thorin's disdain for Bilbo is given the spotlight one time too many. With his days of adventure and excitement nearly forgotten, the now 111-year-old Bilbo Baggins, has finally settled down for a more conventional, comfortable--and above all--safe way of living in his beloved green Shire.
Approached out of the blue by the Wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of 13 Dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. There is absolutely no reason for Frodo Elijah Wood , Saruman Christopher Lee , and Galadriel Cate Blanchett to appear in this story, yet here they are, taking us away from a perfectly good narrative about a quest to fight a dragon. Now it's simply a matter of patiently waiting for The Desolation of Smaug to descend on theaters this December. The latter seemed like a very inappropriate way to illustrate Bilbo's courage. I wouldn't have a problem with this if all these extra scenes actually advanced the plot. McKellen is Gandalf the Grey, and makes a number of interesting choices, from his perfectly rounded affection for Bilbo to his slight irritation at the hobbit's hesitance to strike out with the dwarves.
With an iron gaze and a coalfire in his chest, he helps Jackson accomplish a dramatic trifecta: infusing the film with an undercurrent of tragedy, giving Bilbo a reason to sacrifice his all for the dwarves and providing the first film with a captivating conflict all its own. Jackson and Boyens offer up an excellent commentary, and nine hours of Appendices material explores every last aspect of the production. Sadly, Jackson's new film doesn't come close to silencing the skeptics like his Lord of the Rings films did, and is actually more ill-conceived than expected. All the while, the rear speakers bustle and bristle with engaging, wonderfully effective activity seasoned with convincing directional effects and transparent cross-channel pans. The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey 2012 The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey : Bilbo Baggins is swept into a quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug.
This pressure, this obligation to stretch everything to the limits of endurance and beyond, is felt from the film's early minutes. Lush, lovely Shire greens, summer-kissed browns and oranges, moonlit blues pierced by blazing flame, relatively lifelike fleshtones and cavernous blacks grant the image soul and spirit, while impeccable contrast leveling and exceedingly natural shadow delineation give the image depth and strength. I went to watch an engaging movie and I got a cartoon. Then, some years later, a second trilogy began, a prequel to the original, and the first installment of this second trilogy turned out to be awful. Peter Jackson's return to the world of Tolkien is rather weak. Thorin is your typical warrior like character; I didn't care for him too much.
So right there is the problem with The Hobbit. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, however, is an entirely different movie. All the other dwarfs are just there and if you were to ask me to name them and describe something about their character, I couldn't do it. It's moments like these -- small amendments to the original novel that are used to terrific effect in the film -- that highlight the balance between performance power and adaptative craft the filmmakers have made a habit of employing time after time. Iconic scenes, such as the arrival of the dwarfs at Bag End or the encounter with the trolls are handled pretty well, despite being padded out to unnecessary lengths with lame gags and pointless alteration of the original events in the book. But other enemies await Thorin, Bilbo and the dwarven company before the first film draws to a close. A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to.
Witness the development, creation and implementation of Hobbiton, Rhosgobel, Rivendell, the Misty Mountains and Goblin Town. Bottom line: if you have any affection for The Hobbit whatsoever you owe it to yourself to find out firsthand. And while I can honestly say I've told you the truth, I may not have told you all of it. This movie is awesome, we recommend watching it. But he fails big time. The camera is flying and whirling so limitlessly that it just doesn't feel like an authentic movie anymore. .
Better still, macroblocking, banding and other issues are absent, and only the slightest hint of noise and negligible crush will give eagle-eyed videophiles pause. A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know. Well, it's hard not to considering Jackson has tried so hard to recreate the style of the original films because that's what the audience wants. The entire film is slow! Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. But there is only one hobbit in the entire movie, and only one brief sequence involving elves. However, while I understand why they included them, they all feel out of place. Not by my estimation, although for the most faithful among you it may be exactly that.

As the Lonely Mountain was taken over by the gargantuan gold-loving dragon, Smaug, this unlikely company would face challenge upon challenge that would later seal the fate of the entire Middle-earth. And with the release of Jackson's extended cut, only one thing is certain: the debate will not only continue, it will intensify. If anything, Thorin may turn out to be the true hero of the piece. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield.
