Fantasy February continues on Sci-Fi Malady as we review The Hobbit. Prepare yourself for endless exposition, narration, voiceovers and well, occasionally, the advancement of the plot and action scenes. If you have ever wanted to spend nearly two entire movies traveling to a mountain to fight a dragon, and watching a wizard do no wizarding for nearly two movies, well, this is your trilogy.
Jokes aside, The Hobbit is a classic and J.R.R. Tolkien wrote a powerhouse work of fantasy that will be read as long as books and civilization exists. With the films there are great messages, such as what keeps evil at bay is everyday average people choosing to be good. While overly long The Hobbit, both film and novel, remains a must read and must view for any fan of fantasy.
