Thanks to nostalgia I was predisposed to love this movie. The Hobbit was an integral part of family bonding since my father read it to us at the dinner table, and my siblings and I enjoyed repeated viewings of the cartoon.
This version of The Hobbit met my childhood expectations. Just like the LOTR trilogy I was pleased by dialogue lifted straight from the book. During the opening sequence I was hoping I would never see a full view of Smaug and I got my wish.
Though the real emotional impact of this movie was thanks to Howard Shore's score. The musical interludes transported me back to the Middle Earth Jackson created over 10 years ago, but there was enough variety to underscore the fact that this was a whole new story.
A+ job. I cannot wait for the next two movies.
