The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Great special effects, and cinematography. Make-up is superb, looks real on actors. Costumes are very creative, and pertinent to the time period in Middle Earth. I would guess that this movie will be up for Academy Awards in each of those four categories. Movie makers used much poetic license making this movie. I didn't remember the book being so detailed. I wonder if Tolkein would have liked this version of his book? I would recommend you see this movie! However, it is a tad long. The second movie in the trilogy is coming out this year, the third one in 2014. As far as I can tell, the main actors will be the same. What is amazing is that three separate parts of the movie had to be made to look larger and smaller. In other words, the part of Gandolf had to look bigger than the Dwarfs who needed to be smaller with the Hobbit as the smallest. As a result, the actors had to play to people wearing blue screen outfits, instead of the whole cast in real time. Looking forward to seeing more!
