At times we are so comfortable in our life that we assume that this is the only better way to live. The Hobbit changes that perception. Relating to the common audience, Bilbo Baggins (the Hobbit) proves that even when he is leading a happy and content life but still there is a possibility to explore. There is more to life then just being able to provide food and shelter to ourselves. Life is a journey and not a destination. We should not stop at any point otherwise we will be just the audience and not the actor in the movie of our lives.
Time is the best example of how we should live as the clock keeps ticking no matter what. The same is for our body, we keep breathing as long as we are alive and the heart keep pumping. All the things that are alive become a witness for life, witness of the change in the world. Then why do we stop. The nature of world is change and we can only survive when we change as well.
The movie is about the adventure that begins when Bilbo decides to join the quest of Thorin (grandson of the king – Dwarf Thrór) to reclaim the lonely mountain after being chosen by Gandalf the Grey.
Gollum - Andy Serkis is again at his best, playing Gollum. When Bilbo is confronted by Gollum, they play a riddle game which is more over a game of survival where Gollum shows the various faces of the same characters. And when Gollum losses his ring, then he is devastated and even ready to attack Bilbo due to anger.
I loved the movie as not only it is well written but the creative is at par as well. It is close to the real nature of human. It shows how the good leads us to have courage whereas the evil only rules because of the fear in us. Its not about living every days life but it is about how we make a difference from our presence. It shows the true nature of human – compassion, caring, courage, ability to overcome fear, respect for others, love and much more. Since I started on this self discovery path my perception of life is changing. Movie shows white as a symbol of good and black a representation of evil.
When asked where did he go, as Gandalf says ‘I was looking ahead’ and why did he come back – ‘I was looking behind’. I think we should live life in the same manner. Rather than living in future and past we need to be visionary and still be able to take care of whats left behind. As it helps in predicting the future and still we are close to our roots.
The movie is also about the trust, when Thorin realizes that his impression about Bilbo as home bound and weak Hobbit who should not have come with them in this quest, was wrong when Bilbo saves him from the Orcs.
Towards the end it leaves you with an open end and mystery when the dwarfs are approaching the lonely mountain but the dragon is waking up in it.
