First off, I'd like to apologize for not have written a new movie review in a very long time; I can honestly say it's been awhile since I've seen a new movie [that I've actually enjoyed enough] and at times, I didn't know which new ones I should watch; [Be aware, this is a hint for you readers to send me suggestions*] However, the other day, [2 days ago to be precise] I didn't have work, and neither did Stephanie; so we took it upon ourselves to finally go see 'The Hobbit; An Unexpected Adventure'
Oh, The Hobbit.. I've been waiting for a film adaptation of you since 2006, when The Return Of The King had just made it to theaters, [holy fuck, that would have been when I was 14- *sudden realization] I was fucking stoked to see you on the big screen, so much infact, that I actually dug out my [now lost- making me sad face] old copy of The Hobbit, and re-read the whole damn book in less that 2 weeks to prepare myself for your release in the next year or two.. except you didn't release in the next year or two; it took you 7 years [I forgive this now, because I read somewhere they had been working on it for 4 years.] to finally come out to the silver screens.. However-
Holy fuck, were you ever worth the wait! The scenery, the small hints back to the book, the dancing, the laughs, the tears, & back home to the Middle Earth we all love so very much..
Seriously though, everything about this film made me happier than I ever expected, Martin Freeman plays an amazing Young Bilbo and Andy Serkis as Gollum was impressive as always. I only have one complaint however; Although understandable, Peter Jackson intends on making this into a trilogy; just like his previous masterpieces that are The Lord Of The Rings.. my complaint is as follows- I don't want to have to wait another half a year to see 'The Desolation Of Smaug'. [which is to be released into theaters in November 2013] Even after that one comes out; we get to wait another year for 'There & Back Again' I'm just hoping I fall in love with the next two movie chapters, as much as I did this first part- because it came off strong- in a good way, of course..
What did you guys think? Did you find yourself to enjoy The Hobbit as much as I did? Let me know in the comments, Facebook, or anywhere I'm online found below!
