"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey"
Genre: Fantasy/Action /Adventure
Cast: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage
Director: Peter Jackson
Comment: Disappointing. More of the same look and feel as Lord of the Rings trilogy, obviously, but it gets old and the movie is way too long. "Hobbit Heads" will enjoy it, though.
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas, Connor Cruise, Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Director: Dan Bradley
Comment: A solid contemporary remake of a patriotic grassroots "Liberty or Death" saving of America from foreign invaders.
