"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."
