    Synopsis


    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
    Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) joins Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and a band of dwarves led by the brave Thorin (Richard Armitage) on a treacherous quest to reclaim their mountain home from the fierce dragon Smaug in this epic fantasy adventure adapted from J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved novel by the creative forces behind the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Long before Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood) made his arduous journey to Mordor, his brave uncle Bilbo embarked on an adventure for the ages. Bilbo's story gets under way when the great wizard Gandalf appears at his front gate with a most unusual offer. Displaced from their massive fortress in the Lonely Mountain by Smaug - a greedy dragon who coveted their gold - a community of noble dwarves were decimated by a surprise attack by monstrous orcs, whose dreaded leader the Pale Orc slew their king in a gruesome battle. Now, Thorin, the descendent of the king, is determined to reclaim his mountain kingdom for his people. Together with a fearless team of dwarves, Thorin and Gandalf recruit Bilbo to aid them in their quest since Hobbits have the unique ability to go undetected when they wish to. Before Bilbo, Gandalf, and the dwarves can reach The Lonely Mountain and defeat Smaug, however, they'll have to contend with trolls, goblins, stone giants, Gollum (Andy Serkis), and even the dreaded Pale Orc himself. Peter Jackson directs a screenplay he co-penned with Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, and Guillermo del Toro. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
    Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), his mighty band of dwarves, Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), and wise wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) embark on a crusade to reclaim Erebor from the vicious dragon Smaug (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) in this sweeping fantasy adventure that picks up where the events of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey left off. Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) once again directs from a screenplay by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, and Guillermo del Toro. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
    Peter Jackson takes cues from the appendices of The Lord of the Rings to expand New Line Cinema's Hobbit adaptation with this third film completing the epic tale of Bilbo Baggins, as played by Martin Freeman. The story opens to find the vengeful dragon Smaug (voice of Benedict Cumberbatch) decimating the peaceful hamlet of Laketown as Bilbo, Thorin (Richard Armitage) and the rest of the dwarves lay claim to the Lonely Mountain. But their celebration is short-lived as Thorin grows obsessed with finding the Arkenstone. Meanwhile, Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) Elrond (Hugo Weaving) and Saruman (Christopher Lee) battle the Nazgul in an attempt to free Gandalf (Ian McKellen), and get some unexpected help from eccentric wizard Radagast (Sylvester McCoy). Unfortunately for all involved the struggle has only just begun, because as armies of dwarves, elves, orcs, humans and goblins converge at the base of the Lonely Mountain, the fight for the future of Middle Earth begins. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

      I did NOT see any of the 3 movies in the theaters. I did NOT rent any of the movies when they were available. I did NOT buy any of the theatrical release versions on Blu-Ray when they were available. I did NOT read reviews about the story. I waited and waited and waited for the EXTENDED version Blu-Ray, just like I did for The Lord of The Rings Extended edition and when The Hobbit Extended edition came out on release day November, 17, 2015 I was at Best Buy ready to buy. I got my copy and watched ALL THREE over 2 days and it was totally worth the wait. The Extended edition was worth it and the price of $60 while a bit high was worth it too. My discs played perfectly on my PS3 on a 48" LED Samsung with 5.1 and it was fantastic without any issues. The only thing I can say is that The Lord of The Rings was better overall, but The Battle of The Five Armies was incredible. The previous 2 movies in the Hobbit were ok, a little slow but a nice stage set for the 3rd movie. Good things come to those who wait.

      Product wise, this is a fantastic price point for all three extended editions of the Hobbit movies. If you already know you enjoy them, definitely pick this up. The quality of the Blu-Rays are amazing. As for the movies themselves, I'm torn. They raise a lot more questions than they answer with how they adjusted the story to include the Silmarillion. But the most glaring flaw is how much is constantly happening, even in the extended editions. Unlike the original trilogy of movies, which the action held weight and the extended edition was very slowly paced, the Hobbit movies are ALL info-dump and action ALL the time. There are no breaks in-between important scenes, which in my personal opinion made me care hardly at all about anything important that happened because I never had a chance to let anything set in for the 4 hour runtime per movie. Overall, I would recommend watching them, but I don't know if I would recommend the extended editions. I am curious what they could have possibly cut out of the theatrical version since the entire trilogy is endless "high-stakes". If you want the extended editions, definitely get this pack. If you want to just see the movies to say you saw them, I have to say go with the theatrical versions.

      I'm a big fan of the Peter Jackson Middle Earth adaptations but the original releases of the Hobbit movies felt flat to me which was really disappointing as the actual book is one of my favorite adventure stories of all time. I felt the "extra" took away from the experience. That being said, the extra "extra" in the directors editions seems to have added some cohesion and made it more fulfilling rather than the awkwardness I felt with the shorter versions. It's still kind of goofy compared to the serious nature of LOTR but that's natural to the story itself. Picture and sound is fantastic and I love Martin Freeman as Bilbo! Great casting.

      Tons of extra features and footage. Definitely a must buy for Hobbit fans. Oh, and plenty of catchy poems: Chip the glasses and crack the plates! Blunt the knives and bend the forks! That's what Bilbo Baggins hates— Smash the bottles and burn the corks! Cut the cloth and tread on the fat! Pour the milk on the pantry floor! Leave the bones on the bedroom mat! Splash the wine on every door! Dump the crocks in a boiling bowl; Pound them up with a thumping pole; And when you’ve finished if any are whole, Send them down the hall to roll! That's what Bilbo Baggins hates! So, carefully! carefully with the plates!

      Be pleased to know you will not be disappointed to purchase the extended edtions of the Hobbit Trilogy. Even if you already own the originals you will enjoy these versions. The original Hobbit movie releases are long compared to most theatrical releases and were kept at these lengths for the average movie going market. These types of extended versions are rarely released for theaters and it is great for the fans who can watch them in the comfort of their homes. Fans will enjoy the extra character interaction and development. Since you can always stop and watch at any time, you will not need to take up an afternoon or evening to watch these versions. If you wish to take up the time you can still go for it anyway! Of course, the Blu-ray versions are wonderful to view as well.

      Having enjoyed Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings Trilogy Extended Edition on DVD, the quality of the Hobbit Extended on Blu Ray is spectacular. The films themselves are enjoyable, action-packed, and are successful, despite some new material generated to enhance the plot for a film (does differ from the excellent Hobbit children's book from my youth, but still worth watching). However, the last film did have a lot of violence and gore that was unnecessary (even detracting from the film), which was never necessary in the original films. The extended scenes were very good additions to the films though, watching those extra minutes in a full-length marathon. Now onto the director's commentary version!

      Second Verse, Almost Same as the First

      Ok, so technically this story is the first because it is a prequel but "The Hobbit" is exactly what every LOTR fan was expecting. This is a very good set with all the extras the fanboys and fangirls need. I have been a fan of Martin Freeman since the original version of "The Office" and I have always wanted to see him in a lead role. He does a great job grasping the role but making it his own. I don't and will not convince you to buy this set because if you are looking at this set you will buy it no matter what I write. "I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it's very difficult to find anyone."

      The extras were as good as the movies

      All the negative reviews surprise me because these movies are pretty entertaining. I think Lord of the Rings had everybody's expectations up way too high, but even so I really enjoyed these movies. True, there are a few slow spots especially at the very beginning, but that is expected when you are setting up 8ish hours of movies. Now for the extras. I've only gone through one of the six extra disks and I am so impressed. The first two extras disks are a combined 10 hours of extra content. I'm a documentary fan, so I'm actually enjoying the extras more than the actual movies at this point. This was a great purchase.
