The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Review: Is It a Trip Worth Taking?

The Lord of the Rings film trilogy is an iconic series in cinema that proved fantasy is capable of being a box office smash and critically acclaimed.  Peter Jackson can't be blamed for wanting to weave that magic again with the latest epic fantasy trilogy.  The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has already broken records at the box office and proven people were ready to return to Middle-earth.  But is this a journey that is really worth taking?  Is there enough story to justify another trilogy with 3 hour length films?  I answer all those questions in my latest film review for Collective Publishing.
