By Gollum

I. Can't. Wait.

And Momma says it's not fair for me to Time Travel ahead and watch it without her.


The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever ... Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities ... A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

A "purist" friend of Momma's said after watching the preview,  "We hates it, we hates it, we hates it forever!"

I wonder if she knows that J.R.R. Tolkien himself rewrote part of The Hobbit after writing the Lord of the Rings trilogy. In the first edition of The Hobbit, Gollum willingly bets his Precious on the outcome of the riddle-game, and he and Bilbo part amicably.
