And that is true. But sometimes we find out the story without begininig. This kind of thing happenened when “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy came out (movie trilogy), we saw the story without its beginning. Those who had read the books knew the beginning, those who hadn’t – didn’t. But finally, we all know it since “The Hobbit” trilogy is turned into movies. Plus, with the “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” you are returned to the very first “The Lord of the Rings” films, so you can remember how everything started in the movie.
What can I say about “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”? Well, it’s a majestic story. Beautiful in all senses story. Story about life, fight and betrayal, plus, it all goes in hand with the beautiful world J.R.R. Tolkien created and the film crew brought to life.
For me it’s still strange and at the same time interesting how and why the Hobbit story came second as a movie. And it is also strange why did it take so long to be filmed. I mean, how long was it since “The Lord of the Rings” hit the cinemas? About 10 years divides first “The Lord of the Rings” and first Hobbit movies, am I right? But it was worth of waiting.
First of all, we were introduced with this great actor Martin Freeman who played Bilbo just perfectly. I’ve never seen this actor before (my bad), but he was a really good choice. He did a great job portraying a Hobbit Bilbo who just got himself in an adventure he never thought he could ever get in.
Second of all, we had one more opportunity to see Gandalf. I mean, who doesn’t like Gandalf? He is awesome. He even knew how to make elfs and dwarfs come together 🙂
Thirdly, I mean it is so amazing that these kinds of movies are still made. I mean, it’s like a fairy tale come true to see all these places. I mean who wouldn’t love to stay at least for a little while in Bilbo’s house? I strongly believe in need of this kind of movies. It’s like when I wrote about “The Artist” movie – it’s black and white, it’s silent, but isn’t it a fresh breath of what cinema can give us? We get so many movies to see, not all of them are great or worth of watching, but those that are… My God they are great.
What else I found memorable after watching this film? Well, of course the dwarf gathering – meeting scene. That was a hilarious one. Of course, very impresive were fighting scenes. And moreover, fighting is the key point of this particular story. It’s about fighting with yourself, you fears, overcoming them, leaving your comfort zone and facing adventures. It’s all about the fight between good and evil. It’s a fight of yours to stop judging people from the first meeting, because at the end, the one who you thought was weak might save your life.
