The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Remember: both these films are excellent pieces of cinema, and many of the issues raised here with these Middle-earth adventures are founded on preference (be it an endorsement or critique). Hence, it you have a stronger liking for what Fellowship of the Ring strives to be, its flaws are bound to seem more trivial that An Unexpected Journey (and vice versa). However, at the end of the day, this writer feels that the latter accomplishes more of its goals than the former.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is now playing in theaters.
