It's a good movie, but I'm glad I read the books first. The story line got a little messed up, like some stuff that happened in the book wasn't in the movie and vice versa. And how do you make 3 movies out of 1 book? Anyway, I still think that the book is better

I liked it. I'm sorry if you didn't, because I thought this one stayed quite true to the book, (which I have read multiple times.) At the very least, it stayed closer to the book than the next movie. :) The trolls were PERFECT, exactly how I had imagined them. I thought it was interesting the way they explored the Dwarves' hatred of the Elves and the reasons why. Gollum was creepy, but very believable. The weird, sort of twilight world that Bilbo entered when he put on the ring was a little distracting to me, but that is just my opinion. Also, I had never watched LOTR, so I wasn't comparing this to that. Overall, I may complain a bit about how they didn't stay true to the books in the Hobbit or LOTR, but, at the end of the day, I still love watching them and wouldn't change a thing. (Except Tauriel!) Okay, not TOO many things. :)

If you ever watch the appendices you have to see the short clip titled "the dirty bakers dozen". Or just watch it on youtube

Enjoyable but not quite satisfying. If you have read the book, I recommend that you only watch the first movie.

A more accurate subtitle would be "An Unexpectedly Long Journey."

Good movie!! I thoroughly enjoyed it, the characters are memorable and the call to adventure enjoyable. If you are expecting an action-packed adventure like Fellowship of the Ring or the other two movies, you might be disappointed. This movie is very much an introduction and the action doesn't come until later on in the movie but other all, well done and great acting!!

Bilbo: Uh... no, no, not... not that one, he... he's infected!
William Troll: You what?
Bilbo Baggins: Yes, he's got worms in his... tubes.
Tom Troll: Ooh! [Tom throws down Bombur in disgust]
Bilbo Baggins: In-in fact, they all have. They're infested with parasites, it's a terrible business, I wouldn't risk it, I really wouldn't.
Oin: Parasites? Did he say parasites?
Kili: Yeah, we don't have parasites. You have parasites!
[Thorin kicks Kili, and the dwarves realize what Bilbo is doing]
Oin: I've got parasites as big as my arm!
Kili: Mine are the biggest parasites, I've got huge parasites!

Gandalf (gazing upon the horizon): "Erebor... The Lonely Mountain... the last of the great dwarf kingdoms of Middle Earth..." Thorin Oakenshield: "...Our home..." Balin: "A raven! The birds are returning to the mountain!" Gandalf: "That, my dear boy, is a thrush!" Thorin Oakenshield: "Well, we'll take it as a sign. A good omen." Bilbo Baggins: "You're right. I do believe the worst is behind us." (Camera follows the thrush to The Lonely Mountain, where it noisily pecks at a nut... stirring... Smaug...)

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Not as bad as the LOTR, surprisingly, but the orcs are still kind of scary for younger children. Keep in mind it is rated PG-13!
