THE TWELVE CLIPS OF CHRISTMAS: DAY 9: THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED CHRISTMAS

My ten year old is a diehard LOTR junkie, so like many other families we found ourselves going to see Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit during the holiday season. And why not? I mean, what could go together more naturally than Christmas and The Hobbit…

You know, for some reason I have this strange craving for a bubblegum precious…

Anyway, if you’ve now seen the film yourself and want to know what the rest of the Catholic blogosphere thought about it, here’s a round up of a few select reviews. I’ve purposely stayed away from the professional critics who didn’t care for The Hobbit as a film and instead linked to regular bloggers who enjoyed it for what it was. And I’ve done so for the singular reason that… me and my son liked the movie, all 169 bloated minutes of it. And for the most part, so did these folks, who not only appreciated The Hobbit, but found some Catholic goodies hidden in it as well…

So who else out there has seen The Hobbit and what did you think? I’d love to hear some more takes on it.
