An Unexpected Journey

The Hobbit

Or perhaps I should say "an unexpected pleasure" - because that's what it was.

After hearing various reviewers saying how long and slow and drawn out and boring it was, one review talking about how the hobbit spent at least fifteen minutes of screen time deciding what to pack for his journey (I'm not kidding - I actually read that somewhere), I was expecting to fall asleep through it.

But as it turned out, I really liked it.  I thought the pacing was actually pretty good, and while maybe *some* scenes dragged out a little, it really wasn't as bad as I'd been expecting.

So yeah, definitely enjoyed, but probably more so because of lowered expectations to begin with.

Although it's still hard for me to get past Bilbo being the "porn star" from Love Actually :)
