The original book was episodic with periods of action and struggle set off with times of rest and recovery. The movie, by contrast, is a roller coaster, without let up once Bilbo Baggins makes his decision and runs out the door. When the movie finishes you cannot wait for the next installment. We see the film in the theater and immediately want to buy the DVD so as to see the elements we missed. LOTR set a very high standard for special features beyond the film, and maybe, for "The Hobbit", this will come later, along with "Director's Cut" versions, etc. Still, I expect I will watch the DVD every couple of months. The video blogs that are the principle constituent of the special features are fun, but we want more. Eventually, we'll get it.

        Comments about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Special Edition DVD:

        When a movie follows a book so closely, it is not hard to see how 3 movies can come from one small book. After viewing Part 1, I feel I need to re-read the Hobbit to double check all the details, and can hardly wait to watch the Desolation of Smaug. As a long time fan of these books, I really enjoyed the detail paid to this story, which could hardly be possible with the LOTR.

              Not being a fan of the novel my wife had forgotten where Hobbit 1, Unexpected Journey left off and wanted to review so we bought it and it held up just fine and she enjoyed part 2 since she knew where she was. I watched the last 45 minutes of Unexpected Journey 9 times in June when I substitute taught the last day of school. I still enjoyed the whole movie again. Liked 2 and wish we didn't have to wait for 3.

                This was a Christmas present to my fiance who hadn't seen the movie yet. It was the perfect fit. We watched it twice the first week we had it.

                    The high standards maintained in this film are just what we have come to expect from Fran Walsh, Peter Jackson and Warner Bros.
