The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)

Starring: Martin Freeman, Ian McKellar, Richard Artimage, James Nesbitt, Aiden Turner, Graham McTavish, Ken Stott
Director: Peter Jackson

A young hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, is persuaded by a wizard, Gandolf, to accompany a band of dwarves to Smaug, the dwarves former home which a dragon has since took over.

My Take:
Honestly, I was a disappointed with the movie. It look greats and every thing, especially the action sequences, but it's feels like too stretched out and long. The first forty minutes is the relucant Baggins preparing for a journey he doesn't want to go on (which is a tad boring) and then next two hours is the group falling into one hardship into another (which is tad much). It never lets up as the group battles giants to trolls to goblins to orcs. It's worth watching and maybe you will enjoy it more than me.

Rating:In the middle
