The Hobbit (Part 1): kumusta naman?

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

IN A WORD: Panalo!

IN SEVERAL WORDS: More than I expected!

IN A SENTENCE: The movie was a creative, and very effective, re-arrangement of the plot sequence as presented in J. R. R. Tolkien’s original work.

IN A PARAGRAPH: I’m impressed. As usual, Peter Jackson has shown his mastery of the relatively new art (and science) of transposing Tolkien’s books into film. His interpretation of the personalities of the characters presented in this film (there were the familiar, albeit relatively younger, characters from the LOTR trilogy in several scenes, of course: Gollum, (the older) Bilbo, Gandalf, Lord Elrond, (a surprisingly nicer) Saruman, and Lady Galadriel, to name those I remember) were funny, ‘human’ (even if they were not human), and quite sympathetic. The presence of returning characters notwithstanding, it was the new characters who really grabbed my attention. The 13 Dwarves, for example, — and I’m trying to list down their names from memory — Thorin, Bifur, Bombur, Kili, Fili, Oin Gloin, Ori, Dori, Nori… (my memory fails me at this point and I’m forced to ‘Google’ the rest hehehe)…  Dwalin, Bofur, and Balin, were a merry mix of seriousness, slapstick, royalty, deviousness, anger and compassion. I sometimes caught myself mentally joining in their banter, adding my own suggestions on how to approach an obstacle, or evade the Goblins and Wargs. Adik ba? Hehehehe. But, without a doubt, it was the younger Bilbo who was the star of the movie. As I followed his adventure on the screen, I was constantly trying to relate the situation to events in the LOTR trilogy and, more importantly, to events as presented in the book. Suffice it to say that watching The Hobbit exercised my mind on so many levels, all at the same time. Yup, it was that good. Watch it, read the book, then watch it again.

IN A FULL ARTICLE: Aba’y sobra na yan. Tama na yung sa taas. Wala namang bayad ‘to eh. 🙂
