“The Hobbit” – although it comes with a different name and story, is a sequel of what previously happened in the lord of the rings. It has an IMDb rating of 7.4. After “The Lord of the Rings” concluded in 2003 – I bet we all really missed the magical mystery, the elves, the quest for power, the battles with mighty swords, and whatnot (that’s you will have in The Hobbit). Thanks to the director Peter Jackson who gave it a thought – and gave us another series of something that closely resembled the lord of the rings.
The Hobbit: Cast of the Movie
The movie’s cast revolves around the protagonist – an older version of Bilbo Baggins played by Martin Freeman. None of us have forgotten Gandalf (Ian McKellen), Thorin (Richard Armitage), or the heartthrob of the show. The other supporting characters include Bifur (William Kircher), Bofur (James Nesbitt), Bombur (Stephen Hunter), Fili (Dean O’Gorman), Kili (Aidan Turner), Oin (John Callen), Gloin (Peter Hambleton), Nori (Jed Brophy), Dori (Mark Hadlow), Ori (Adam Brown), and others.
Show Starter Sequences of the Movie
For the show starters – Peter Jackson resuscitated all the thrill and drama, and of course, the dangers and threats of the show. It showed Erebor’s underground city and how an affliction demolished the whole city, compelling the dwarfs to exile. The scenes began with the extremely violent fire-expelling dragons attacking the beautiful city.
The Hobbit: Plotting and the Story
The destruction of Erebor sets up an opportunity for Bilbo Baggins to return what he has first done – and lived reminiscing it for a lifetime. From being just a kid – to a point where he is an older man, he has been the show’s real hero. The wizard Gandalf asks him to join the fellowship of dwarves to help them regain their lands and wealth from the Smaug – a dragon residing under the Lonely Mountain.
Bilbo, who has been spending a tranquil and peaceful life in his cozy home somewhere in the Shires, brings back memories from the past. His time in the house is all about writing memories, puffing his pipe, and blowing out the smoke from it. The most he did was to eat regular meals. Well, that what it is. But all of a sudden, a call for an adventure – yet a life-threatening adventure rather surprises and excites him.
The First Challenge of Bilbo Baggins
Speaking of the first challenge – you might be thinking about something like a fierce battle or a dragon. But to your surprise, it is something rather funnier, if not grave. The first challenge of Bilbo Baggins to identify the bald and bearded dwarves – and they are not one or two or three in number; they are an actual count of thirteen.
The Thirteen Dwarves in the movie
The dwarves – leaving one aside (who happens to be their leader) are six pairs of rascals having rhyming names. All they do and care about is eating and singing. However, the thirteenth is different. He’s rather handsome and serious – Thorin Oakenshield. Soon after the knockabout scenes end, the real adventure and the journey begins.
The Journey to the Lonely Mountain
Okay, so coming on the journey to the famous “Lonely Mountain” begins. The thirteen dwarves, Gandalf, and the reluctant Bilbo Baggins embark on their venturesome journey. The journey – as you might be sure would not be something easy-peasy. It includes everything from orcs, trolls, elves, goblins, and the other mythical elements.
The Mythical Elements in The Hobbit
What made the lord of the rings so mystery-packed is the fact that it has something that we cannot apprehend as real – but leaves us wondering what if it existed somewhere back in our past. It has all the swords, magical rings, giant eagles, the mysterious and knotty maps, and the really bad riddles of Gollum that no one could possibly solve, but Bilbo (the decision to bring him was somewhat justified).
The Verdict on The Hobbit
As the movie progresses, the mountainous terrain becomes darker and menacing. It must have been very mettlesome for the cinematographer Andrew Lesnie who did fantastic work in capturing the landscape. The relationship between Bilbo, Gandalf, and Thorin was delicate to handle, but admirations for Jackson, who did it very brilliantly.
Since the very beginning, we have known that after fighting all the battles and exhibiting the heroic qualities, he would just return to his usual self somewhere in the comfy corner of his home. And this is what Bilbo exactly did. To watch the movie, get spectrum internet – or call at +1-800-370-0251 for any assistance.
