The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Grading & Discussion (Spoilers)



The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever... Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ...a simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
The time is almost upon us. One week from today, the first part of Peter Jackson's prequel trilogy (yes, it's a trilogy now, get over it ) will be released in the United Kingdom, with the rest of the world soon to follow. Reviews from the recent world premiere in Wellington have been coming in over the past couple of days, so I decided it's time to get the grading thread up.

Enjoy the movie, everyone!
