Steve's Review of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
I am a huge LOTR fan and of course loved this film. However, that would not make me a good reviewer because of my bias. But, all I can say is that my wife is not a LOTR fan. She went with me to the first one and would not go again. How I got her to see the Hobbit with me is beyond understanding. She loved it, She wants to see the next one, and she did not notice the time passing. The other quotes I have seen about the slowness of the movie puzzles me. it seemed like we had no sooner escaped one life-threatening adventure than we were thrust into another. "Out of the frying pan and into the fire," say Thorin after escaping the Goblin King only to be attacked by the Wargs and Orcs. Naysayers, I feel so sorry for you. Been a Tolkien fan since 1978, this movie is awesome, so glad PJ saw fit to make these Gems a reality. Would you seriously wish they had never been made? If so, then I really feel sorry for you. I am having a blast. Can't wait for the next one and the 4 hour director's cut of this one.
