Product Description

Hobbit, The: An Unexpected Journey (Bilingual/Blu-ray+DVD+Digital Copy/Combo Pack)

Amazon.ca

A fellow named Bilbo Baggins lives in the Shire--but perhaps you've made his acquaintance already? If you're familiar with J.R.R. Tolkien's epic Lord of the Rings trilogy, and the films that Peter Jackson wrought from them, of course you have. And here is Bilbo, played again by Ian Holm, shuffling about his hobbit hole and recalling a grand adventure from his past, when he left the Shire with a wizard and some dwarves and found a certain ring and a very peculiar creature named Gollum. This is The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which Jackson and his LOTR crew have expanded on from Tolkien's 1937 novel. And boy, have they expanded: this 169-minute escapade is merely the first of three separate movies made from that one book, and it gets the young Bilbo (played by Martin Freeman) only a little ways into his grand trek. Many loud, garish battles and chases fill the time, along with some (it pains one to say it) fairly tedious adolescent-level humor. Jackson tends to dally with scenes that might have been more effective in half the time, and the bumptious dwarves are some of the least charming characters in the Tolkieniad. Thank goodness, there's Gollum (played, as before, by the digitally transformed Andy Serkis), who shares a riddle-trading scene with Bilbo that sends genuine shivers up the spine. Ian McKellen returns as Gandalf, and a few other LOTR folk make cameos, but the more An Unexpected Journey goes on, the less you sense the magic afoot. Despite the fun moments, this feels like a prologue for the actual movie, which is still to come. (Originally released on many screens in 3-D, the film was also showcased in some theaters in a pioneering format that increased the clarity of the image--or made it look like a soap opera, depending on your receptiveness to the flat, frictionless technology.) --Robert Horton

4.0 out of 5 stars Extended version highly recommended
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 14, 2019
We very much enjoyed The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey after seeing it again, now with our young daughter.
The extended version of these movies are highly recommended as it allows you to immerse yourself deeper into beautiful Middle Earth and its lore. And even though some of the critics labelled An Unexpected Journey too long we loved the extended version and some of the extra material. We would have gladly taken more of the added scenes. If anything, the last 45 minutes of this movies is a brilliant rollercoaster.

Yes, the 13 minutes of added scenes add to an pacing issue that the movie already had in its original form, essentially a stretched-out version of Tolkien’s children’s book. The issue might be that the story that was meant as a children book perhaps doesn’t lend itself as much as a 9 hour experience. To deal with this many characters like the dwarves get backstories. And new interesting characters are introduced. I still think that the overall story line doesn’t compare well with the gravitas of the Lord of the Ring story line. The Hobbit movies lean more on action and slapstick. Yet we were thrilled to see the movie again and the extended version particular.

So watching the Unexpected Journey on our fairly high-end Oled screen with proper surround sound was a delight; the picture is fantastic and of high quality with the colours looking vibrant and bright. The blu ray does do a lot of justice to all the detail of the movie. The audio is equally great with the dialogue, score, and sound effects very well balanced. Such audio visuals combined into an experience that could hardly be better. The Hobbit visuals are much better than the 1st LOTR The Fellowship of the Ring that we now started to watched again in blu ray. LOTR looks more blurry and dated, with some scenes clearly relying on 1990’s movie technology. Some of the old LOTR trilogy effects, apart from the Gollum scenes, start to look noticeably off - comparable to the issues that Star Wars A New Hope had vs its later trilogy movies.

Where possible we buy the 3D version of movies, I even prefer it over the cinema 3D experience. The Unexpected Journey looks very crisp and immersing in 3D.

An unexpected Journey tells the story of dwarf prince Thorin Oakenshield’s quest to drive the dragon Smaug from his ancient dwellings in the Lonely Mountain (Erebor). For the main character it’s a story about accepting new challenges and finding new friendships. The confrontation between Bilbo and Andy Serkis’ Gollum are particularly notable. And the scenes with the dwarves are quite pleasing. But you only get glimpses of Smaug, most as he flies over burning battlements and city ruins.

The extra 13 minutes are scattered throughout the movie. You’ll get a few more dwarf songs, naked dwarfs in an Elf fountain (!) more elaborate gatherings and an extended Goblin-king scene. And perhaps most importantly you finally begin to understand why these particular Dwarves and Elves do not see eye-to-eye, and why Thranduil coldly refused to help the Erebor exiles after Smaug’s attack.

The 3 discs contains about 9 (!) hours of extra’s and the list of included extra material is impressive (if you are into it);
- The Filmmakers Commentary,
- New Zealand: Home of Middle-Earth - about the location with cast interviews.
- The Chronicles of The Hobbit – Part 1 – a very extensive documentary about the film production.
- The Appendices, Part 8: Return to Middle-Earth – another extensive documentary about character and set design

So it’s a lengthy movie and we watched it in 3 parts, we treated the remainder of the trilogy in the same manner and it got us into a similar mode as with a streaming tv series.

The set also includes a digital copy. Nice in a sense. But I get very frustrated by the fact that I now have to run 4 different apps from movie studios each filled with their own digital copy format; iTunes, Flixster/Ultraviolet, Googleplay ect. And so far there is no proper way to integrate my collections of digital copies. Moreover, most will require wifi, which is not always available when travelling. Until this is being addressed these digital copies remain a half-baked freebie in support of self-copies.
