The Verge reviews The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and finds some unexpected issues.The Verge reviews The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and finds some unexpected issues.

Rather than the majestic grandeur presented in the first films, the new entry looks more like a Renaissance Faire recreation shot on your brother's mini-DV camera. It's most jarring in the movie's opening, where we briefly visit Frodo and Bilbo in the moments leading up to Fellowship; we know what these characters in that world should look like, and it simply feels wrong.

Make sure that you are not drinking any sort of mead or eating Elven bread whilst watching this quick video. It may travel as far Rohan before settlling near the white tree of Gondor before being expunged from your nose. Interesting to note that Saruman can add trolls to the list of creatures once bred at Isengard.
