Get Ready for “An Unexpected Journey”

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, is the first of a trilogy of movies that Peter Jackson directed, co-wrote and produced to bring to life J.R.R. Tolkien’s 1937 fantasy novel, The Hobbit, and it opens today!

It’s the prequel, of course, to Jackson’s cinematic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

I’m delirious with anticipation, although I must admit I can’t imagine this movie series will match the power and grandeur of LOTR, if only because the The Hobbit in book form couldn’t compare to the the trilogy of LOTR books, in my opinion.

In the LOTR, Tolkien brought forth a much broader tale with quite advanced spiritual themes, and his characters were much more complex than those in The Hobbit, although both stories represent themes of personal growth, forms of heroism and the development of wisdom.

The Hobbit was a wonderful tale, but a children’s tale at heart. LOTR was for the more mature mind and soul.

No matter, in the end, I still want to see this movie because at heart, I’m a nerd.

From a review at

“It’s a world with barely any women, no romance, and where small men with big hairy feet thrive. No, it’s not Comic-Con — it’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”


Will you be going to see it?
