Maria's Review of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Saw it in 3D and what they can do now with special effects had me wishing that the original LOR Trilogy was created now because the action scenes in this were less cluttered, clearly detailed and therefore a better enjoyable ride as far as the action goes. As far as the story goes, well I was expecting more of an "after-math" effect (having been a die-hard fan of LOR) and was surprised at how magnificent this movie was. I am not from the same planet as those people who can actually go so far as to rate this rotten. IMO, no stories, movies I've seen in the many years I've lived come close to Tolkien's tales which Peter Jackson has magnificently mastered on film.
