Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, Alex Miller and special guest Jonathan Dunn (host of the Our Three Cents podcast) discuss The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Bilbo is convinced to burgle by a cadre of dwarves and a wizard. Starring Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Christopher Lee, Ian McKellen, and Cate Blanchett. 

The first in a trilogy (!!!) of movies based off The Hobbit, Peter Jackson returns to the directing chair as he tries to pad out and insert forced links to his beloved live-action Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey manages to be closest to the book while being the most elegant in popping in Lord of the Rings cameos. Its Extended Cut features more songs and character bits, including a nice young Bilbo sequence inspired by a discussion between Ian McKellen and Peter Jackson. Rather pokey at times, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is a gentle start to the real meat of the story we'll see over the next two films.
