Consumed Podcast 14: The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey

It's a particularly polarizing episode of Consumed this week as all three of us congregate over The Hobbit. There's high praise and analysis for its visual style, Howard Shore's score and many points in the acting, but also heavy questions of pacing and how the surprising number of fight scenes are handled. I seem to have stunned Max with one claim about "amateurish" elements toward the middle of the podcast. We get deep into it, so if you want a fix for Peter Jackson's latest, then this is the podcast for you.

  1. I haven't seen the film yet so I'm going to wait to listen to this one.


    1. The first twenty minutes are spoiler-free, and we make it very explicit when we travel into giving things away. There's a hard break in case anyone hasn't seen the movie yet. But still, I recommend checking the movie out, and the podcast will be waiting for you when you're ready!

    1. That's true, but not quite the same as imagining a giant African American, is it? It's still a mystery to me.
