If you didn’t know already, I’m a big LOTR fan. I spend weekends watching the extended editions of the LOTR trilogy, back to back marathon style. When The Hobbit came out last year I thought it was brilliant and naturally I couldn’t wait for the second Hobbit movie to come out. When it finally did, watching it on the second day of its release instead of the first was quite a stretch for my patience, but I finally settled down on my seat, butterflies buzzing in my stomach in anticipation.  Read more »

I just finished watching the Avengers movie for the 100th time. When the credits rolled I sighed in happiness and told myself that Hollywood doesn’t make good movies like these anymore. Then I remembered the Hobbit which is equally good if not better, then I remembered a whole bunch of good movies I’ve seen in 2012! Perhaps Hollywood’s dry spell is being nourished again? Lets see, my 12 favourite, really good you can watch them again and again must buy on DVD movies of 2012 are Read more »

Movie Review: The Hobbit

The thing I love about Peter Jackson’s adaptations of LOTR is that its consistency with the actual book. You see it as you’ve read it with very minor changes here and there. In my humble opinion the LOTR movie trilogy was one of the most successful book-movie adaptations ever therefore when I saw that The Hobbit was going to be shown at Grand Cinema on 13 December, I knew exactly where I would be spending my Thursday evening.

I loved every single one of the three LOTR movies. I’ve seen the extended version of each over and over again. When The Hobbit began, with the same soundtrack as the three LOTR, I almost cried. Watching Frodo, Gandalf, Elrond, and Smeagol again on screen again felt really good. I enjoyed every scene and as expected from Peter Jackson The Hobbit didn’t disappoint at all. It was quite funny actually if you compare it to the other LOTR movies.

The movie is long but I wish it was longer. I hope there is another extended version that I can buy on DVD. The good news is that The Hobbit will be a movie trilogy as well with the next film coming out on 2013 so we won’t have to wait long. If you are a fan of LOTR you will love The Hobbit. If you aren’t a fan then it might bore you so don’t waste your time.
