"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" movie quotes follow along as the fantasy adventure novel "The Hobbit" by J. R. R. Tolkien comes to life in film form. As the first of three in the film adaptation of the novel, "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" premiered in Wellington, New Zealand, on November 28, 2012, prior to its December 14, 2012, wide release.
In "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) enlists the help of Hobbit Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), a young yet curious fellow, as he and his troupe of dwarves journey eastward on a mission to reclaim their homeland. This adventure however is highly dangerous both in the journey to Lonely Mountain and once they get there and face Smaug, the dragon that guards the stolen treasure.
Bilbo reluctantly agrees to join in on the adventure and journeys along with the company, and leader Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) from Shire to Rivendell, into the Misty Mountains then to Mirkwood. Along the way, Bilbo meets Stoor Hobbit Gollum, someone that will change his life forever, and acquires a golden ring that carries some very helpful special powers.If these epic fantasy-style movies are not quite your thing, plenty of other worthwhile movies were released around the same time including "Killing Them Softly," "Hitchcock," "Skyfall," "Lincoln," "Flight," "Playing for Keeps," "Silver Linings Playbook," "Anna Karenina," "This Must Be the Place," "Cloud Atlas," "Wreck-It Ralph," "Nobody Walks," "The Sessions," "Red Dawn," "Chasing Mavericks," "Rise of the Guardians," "Argo," and "Looper."
Everything There is to Know About My Adventures
Old Bilbo Baggins: "My dear, Frodo, you asked me once if I had told you everything there is to know about my adventures. While I honestly say I have told you the truth, I may not have told you all of it."Reflecting on the adventure, an older Bilbo Baggins tells his beloved friend Frodo the parts of his journey that he previously left out. Spoiler: The parts he left out are the good ones.
Someone to Share in an Adventure
Bilbo Baggins: "Can I help you?"
Gandalf: "Bilbo Baggins, I am looking for someone to share in an adventure."
Loyalty, Honor, a Willing Heart
Thorin Oakenshield: "We will reclaim our homeland. I will take each and every one of these dwarves over the mightiest army. Loyalty, honor, a willing heart, I can ask no more than that."Thorin knows that he might not have the fiercest group of men in his troupe but he surely has men who bring loyalty, honor and heart, three things that are immeasurable.
A Tale or Two to Tell
Gandalf: "You'll have a tale or two to tell when you come back."
Bilbo Baggins: "Can you promise that I will come back?"
Gandalf: "No, and if you do, you will not be the same."
