Like The Lord of the Rings films, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is a melting pot of gracious, self-sacrificing talent both in front and behind the camera. Rounding out the third of this film's main characters, and an addition to this world, is Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, the leader of the motley crew of dwarves. Home Entertainment has officially announced and detailed both the standard Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack releases of director Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. As with The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Jackson, Walsh and Boyens focus first and foremost on character and story, placing the utmost value on casting, performances and the ensuing adaptation above all else. McKellen is also responsible for yet another subtly emotional series exchange, this time with Blanchett, in a tender, easily overlooked moment of intimacy that never fails to send chills racing up my arms, even after this, my fifth viewing. Detail is nothing short of extraordinary too. Sir Ian McKellen returns as Gandalf here playing his more impish grey incarnation, rather than the frankly humorless white version and the heralded thespian manages to imbue his character with both immense power and gravitas, while still throwing in little flourishes that sell Gandalf as an imperfect man, rather than just an all-knowing power.
It isn't a sacred adaptation of Tolkien's text, or even one that rivals any of The Lord of the Rings films. Which brings up the most contentious point of this whole Hobbit affair: the fact that it's a three-part epic. This is one of the best movie based on Adventure, Family, Fantasy. Ultimately, Jackson's 3D may not raze your home theater to the ground, but it invites you along on Bilbo's journey, through winding hills, towering forests, massive caverns and beyond. No, The Hobbit isn't perfect.
It's these moments, these small amendments not present in the original novel but used to terrific effect in the film, that highlight the balance between performance power and adaptative craft the filmmakers make a habit of employing again and again and again.

But, excellent, informative and entertaining as they are, the blogs are bound by rules full-fledged production documentaries have the freedom to discard at the outset. Jackson may not have filled the ranks with more familiar Hollywood faces, but what he nets in return is on-screen comradery, obvious even between Journey's mortal enemies. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Much like Tolkien's tome, the Lord of the Rings films came to utterly define high fantasy in film, with even competing fantasy adaptations like The Chronicles of Narnia and Alice in Wonderland cribbing from Peter Jackon's critically-acclaimed, audience-adored multipart epic.
Tolkien, ever the completist, wrote volumes of backstories for this world, and Jackson decided to pull from them to bulk out these films. Moreover, the lush, lovely Shire greens, summer-kissed browns and oranges, moonlit blues pierced by blazing flame, relatively lifelike fleshtones and cavernous blacks that grant its 2D counterpart soul and spirit are intact and unhindered. Unlike the 2D release, which includes two Blu-ray discs one for the film, one of the bonus material , the 3D version includes four Blu-ray discs: the 3D presentation of The Hobbit is spread across Discs One and Two, Disc Three houses the 2D presentation of the film, and Disc Four is devoted to the high definition extras. But The Hobbit is lighter, freer, funnier, and doesn't have the weight of the world on its shoulders. Allow me to begin with a small word of warning, though. Bilbo also meets the Gollum and finds his lost magic ring.
This pace will likely have a dire impact on the film's rewatchability, but sitting in the theater for a midnight showing? A reluctant Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, sets out to the Lonely Mountain with a spirited group of dwarves to reclaim their mountain home and the gold within it from the dragon Smaug. Did you find this review helpful? 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. Criticism continues to run the gamut. He also repeats those several minutes of platform game inside caves that we saw in Moria and in his version of King Kong.

Arriving before the film debuted, the blogs' chief goal was secrecy, making them more of an extended two-hour promo for the film than anything more extensive. One day, the young Hobbit Bilbo Baggins is unexpectedly visited by the wizard Gandalf the Grey and twelve homeless dwarfs led by their former king Thorin and decided to vanquish Smaug and recover Erebor and their treasure. The rest of the dwarvish actors, particularly McTavish and Nesbitt, fill out the company nicely and, more importantly, serve Thorin and Bilbo's arcs selflessly. Drawing from the original book, Tolkien's Appendices and co-writers Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and Guillermo del Toro's ever-evolving screenplay, Jackson's Unexpected Journey presents Bilbo as an adventurer-in-the-making in a coming-of-late-age tale, dwarf prince-turned-king Thorin Oakenshield Richard Armitage as a fallen hero, the unruly dwarves as nomads longing for a rightful place to lay their heads rather than mere treasure , their quest a more honorable journey, and Gandalf's frequent absences a means to a far greater end: a response to the rise of a sinister Necromancer Benedict Cumberbatch in the stronghold of Dul Guldur. It's a gorgeous, gripping, at-times enthralling return to Middle-Earth, though, with far more to offer the Peter Jackson and J. 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. With Freeman, Bilbo is a fully realized anchor point and unmistakably human for a hobbit.
Inward 3D is more immersive and enveloping, and I find myself less conscious of the particulars of the 3D imagery and more taken by it. Some fans will no doubt wait for the Extended Edition release. Dialogue remains crystal clear and intelligible throughout without a lost or muffled line to be found , Howard Shore's score is sweeping and full, and prioritization is flawless.

Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. And what is his secret business to the south? Could use serious trimming or stands soundly as is.
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. If you loved the previous movies from Jackson, you will love this too. Jackson returned as director, co-writing with Fran Walsh and Phillipa Boyens though del Toro retains a screenwriting credit , Andrew Lesnie as cinematographer, and Howard Shore as composer, along with all of the other stalwarts of the original trilogy. Impeccable contrast leveling and exceedingly natural shadow delineation certainly help, and the filmmakers' at-times stylized color grading is presented without apparent flaw. The long and short of it? The resulting soundfield is wholly immersive too, dropping the listener into the heart of Erebor, the cozy hobbit holes of Hobbiton, the vast expanse of the wild, the midst of a thunderous rock giant battle, the chaos of an underground Goblin city and the center of a cave where a certain magic ring slips from its master's pocket and bounces along the ground.
