The Hobbit, a Magnificent Start to a Trilogy


Middle-earth returns to theaters with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and it’s a welcome home to J.R.R. Tolkien’s storytelling.  I didn’t realize how much I missed Lord of the Rings on the big screen until seeing this beginning of another Peter Jackson trilogy.  If you are a ‘Rings’ lover, then it’s time to put on that special pair of Hobbit feet you bought a few years back and sit yourself in a theater seat for nearly a three hour treat.

Its 60 years in the future when we see Bilbo Baggins (Ian Holm) writing the story of his past called “The Hobbit”.  The time is somewhere between his return from his adventure to the introduction of Frodo as his nephew tying in the Lord of the Rings saga with his past.  As he digresses the first of a new trilogy begins.
