Format: Blu-ray
When The Lord of the Rings extended editions came out, the added minutes were most welcome. Besides, Tolkien wrote the books with these details in mind. And that's the problem with The Hobbit: Most of the details are merely glimpsed at. It was Jackson and company who ultimately decided on the dialogs (when none was available), gave character designs and such. The main problem is that it makes The Hobbit feel like a rehash of The Lord of the Rings (Fellowship) on many occasions, but with far less charm than what was intended. Peter Jackson's direction seems to be on automatic pilot and it does feel like Guillermo Del Toro would have been a better choice of a director.

It's nevertheless fun to be back to Middle-Earth and enjoy seeing a younger Bilbo Baggins and seeing such fresh new designs on dwarves when Gimli seemed to have firmly established the look and talk. Special effects are aplenty here so eye candy is there at all turns. But the main feast remains (to me at least) the "Riddles in the Dark" section where Bilbo meets Gollum, whose antics and reactions are as simple, complex, enjoyable and hateful at the same time. Another great painstaking work has been done to put much plot devices to hint at things to come in Lord of the Rings, and so characters and dialogs that didn't happen in the original novel are here to convey it all. Christopher Lee (92 years of age at time of writing this) is still giving his all to the portrayal of Saruman.

As this is a Peter Jackson special edition, much has been given to the buyer. Over 9 hours of un-rehashed special features await and no one is coy about what happened when Del Toro decided to quit, how long it took, the struggles during production.

I want to keep this brief...

I saw the movie with my wife, we both liked it, and like many others we did think it went a little on the long side.

That being said, you should be aware before ordering this movie that there is an extended version of the movie planned for release in late 2013 on time to promote the theatrical release of the 2nd Hobbit movie.

Will an extended version of a movie many thought was too long be an improvement? I don't have an answer to that question, but I personally plan to hold out and wait for the extended edition to see for myself.

Update, August 3, 2013: The extended version is now available for pre-order!

Format: Blu-ray
VIDEO (2D):

This Extended Edition of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey finally arrives on blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. Filmed entirely on a Red Epic camera system, this transfer is pristine and images are razor-sharp, like every leaf in treetops, every blade of grass and every pebble on the road with resounding clarity. The costumes of each character shows every thread and stitching with extraordinary definition, and individual hairs in the beards are very distinct. Close-ups reveal pores, wrinkles and negligible blemishes with lifelike textures. This transfer also displays a dazzlingly bold and colourful palette, even if the cinematography seems to favour the teal & orange aesthetic. Primaries are richly saturated and animated while a healthy assortment of secondary hues fills the screen with warmth and energy. A crisp, brilliant contrast allows for extraordinary visibility in the distance, exposing the tiniest objects in the background and the fine lines of various rock formations scattered throughout the New Zealand landscape. Black levels are true and inky, penetrating deep into the screen with luxurious gradations, while shadow details remain plain and sharply delineated. (5/5)

AUDIO:

Peter Jackson's return to Middle-earth comes with a DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio soundtrack. This lossless mix is reference quality with a mid-range that is amazingly extensive and broad, exhibiting the smallest detail with superb, crystal-clear clarity. The tiny pops and sizzles of crackling fire are perfectly audible, and distant, individual droplets of water while in Gollum's cave crash unto rocks with accurate, realistic definition.

Format: DVD
"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" is a unique film that appears to obviously stir the concept of benevolent forces colliding with malevolent elements. "Ian Mckellen" returns in the pivotal role of Gandalf the Grey. He persuasively plays the wizard who strives to foster unity among Bilbo Baggins and the company of dwarves. Cate Blanchett (Elizabeth, Ponyo,Hanna) and Hugo Weaving (the Matrix films, Captain America, Cloud Atlas) also play important roles with the characters of Galadriel and Elrond. The artistic detail of the orcs and goblins are done in a one of a kind fashion, but I admit that they also remind me a little of some of the villain characters from my husband's World of Warcraft computer game. Many of the characters played an integral part to the plot of this film. However, two of my personal favorite characters were that of Bilbo Baggins (played by Martin Freeman) and Thorin Oakenshield (played by Richard Armitage). They both seem to be two sides of the same spiritual coin and challenge each other in way that brings out their spiritual growth. "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" is great for those who enjoyed any of the Lord Rings trilogies or like fantasy movies.
