The Hobbit : An Unexpected Journey (2012)

Fyi, me haven't watched or read any single of Tolkien's work. I know LOTR was popular at that time, but I didn't interested at all. So, last Friday, I tried to watch prequel of LOTR which is The Hobbit. Who knows I will be interested in Tolkien's work after that.


In the opening, Old Bilbo narrates the story of Erebor, land of peaceful dwarves with Thrain as a King. The land was in peaceful until Dragon Smaug destroyed Erebor. Until this story finished, I was so amazed with how imaginery Erebor and dwarves are.

Then Old Bilbo and Frodo appeared in their holes at Bag End. How cute was Hobbit's hole. I like how the story turns from Old Bilbo into Young Bilbo by a smoke.

Bilbo Baggins : Good Morning 
Gandalf : What do you mean? Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on? 
Bilbo Baggins : All of them at once.
At first, I thought Gandalf The Grey looks alike Dumbledore. Hoohoo. Ok, Ian McKellen of Gandalf is far far different from Michael Gambon of Dumbledore. Switch to next topic. Martin Freeman is the right person of Bilbo Baggins. Yeah, everyone says the same thing of him.

My first favourite scene is of course when the dwarves are coming to Bilbo's house. They really are making a mess in Bilbo's house. Fili & Kili are somehow 'model' look alike. They're quite handsome in their races. But afterthat, the dwarves are cleaning all up into the first position. Moreover, when dwarves are singing along a song, that's really beautiful. I like that song. It's really like a choir. The title is Misty Mountains Cloud. After this, the journey is begin.

The dwarves, gandalf, and also Bilbo begin an adventure to Erebor. Of course, the journey isn't that easy. They all battled with Troll, Orc, Gollum, and other creatures. What I can say is, this is a long long long journey to Erebor. 3 hours long that made me a little bit bored but amazed instead. Fortunately, after seeing Middle Earth and Bilbo-Gollum's riddles, I up to watch again the movie. 

Gollum's Riddle : What has roots as nobody sees,
Is taller than trees,
Up, up it goes,
And yet never grows?

3 hours looonnnggg. It's worth for Tolkien's fans who love fantasy and adventure. If not, I'm sure you will get bored. But it's a great movie. It makes me want to read The Hobbit's novel and then watch LOTR series. Hehhee. This movie is the first installment, fyi. Wait for The Hobbit : The Desolation of Smaug next year.
