So I went to see the Hobbit today with my family. It was a wonderful movie. Peter Jackson is back and drew from the the success and the characters of Lord Of The Rings making The Hobbit a shoe in for success. So far it didn’t have quite the same impact that Lord of The Rings had, but I think that is simply because Lord of The Rings was the first of its kind. Somehow there are going to be three movies for the Hobbit just like there were for Lord of The Rings – I can’t help feel that there is a little bit of padding going on there, given that it is a much smaller book. Even so, I still loved the movie today and it made the drop off from the Christmas build-up bearable.
