For those who are unfamiliar, “The Hobbit” is a book written by J.R.R. Tolkien to complement his “Lord of the Rings” series. It is the tale of a younger Bilbo Baggins and his adventures with the One Ring and was originally aimed for children. There was a popular animated version of this story made into a movie so being a huge fan of the book, that film, and the “Lord of the Rings” movies, I was anxiously awaiting the release of this movie. Was it as good as I hoped?
