Looking Forward To...


The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
December 14, 2012
Distributor: Warner Brothers
Director: Peter Jackson
Starring: Martin Freeman, Richard Armitrage, Andy Serkis, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Lee Pace, Benedict Cumberbatch, Billy Connolly, Elijah Wood, Christopher Lee, Aidan Turner, Ian Holm, James Nesbitt, Dean O'Gorman, and Ian McKellen

So of course I'm super excited for this film mostly because I was such a huge fan of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy which I consider to be three of the best films of last decade. I cheered when they swept the Academy Awards for the final film and more recently I spent 4 hours (or was it 5? 6?) watching the extended edition of Return of the King and remembered why I loved it in the first place. So when it was announced that Peter Jackson was coming back and directing the prequel with some of the original cast members? Well, I was off-the-moon happy. Then of course one film became two films... and two films became three films... and well some of my excitement has been noticeably diluted. Still, I'll be right there on opening weekend. I miss Middle Earth that much. Also look how pretty...

  1. Well of course you are. And that's the point of all the Hobbit hype now isn't it?
