The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey(2012)

I enjoyed the Hobbit, but it misfires far more often than the lord of the rings did and while I understand they were going to change things to increase the action in the film some of the changes are baffling as they serve little to no narrative purpose. There are still plenty of things that they got right (the dwarfs cleaning up and the riddle game with Gollum being the highlights) but with some humor misfires and several action scenes that are way to over the top and preposterous this film falls well short of the previous trips to middle earth via Peter Jackson.
