Hello there, welcome to my review of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. This movie is awful. I've seen other reviews forgiving this movie for its wrongs. Nope, this movie was just plain bad. Hollywood nowadays, I feel, just has a notepad filled with stupid, overused cliches. This movie used 'em all. From cliched characters, to slapstick comedy, to stupid oneliners, to a overused speech about heros and crap, to a corny villain that didn't even appear in the book. It is okay to stray from the book a little, but not to fill the holes with overused shit. The story itself was pretty true to the book, about the band of dwarves on a quest to take back there riches. Now, they didn't have much to work with, but this would have been a fine kids movie. If you made it one movie, not 3 hours long, taken out the awful comedy it would have been a good kids movie. But no, not serious enough, let's add something that wasn't in the book for comic relief. Radagast the Brown played a small role in the first LOTR book, he was never in the hobbit. I am just angered by this monstrosity. It itself wasn't that bad, but to take a crap on something I enjoy (the LOTR books and movies) is just awful. You have FAILED Peter Jackson. You have officially made The Phantom Menace of Middle Earth. 2/10!
