1591 words - 6 pages

I am going to review The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkein, (1892 - 1973) who, as most people know wrote the 'Lord Of The Rings' trilogy but also many others such as 'A Question of Time' and 'The Peoples Of Middle Earth'.I feel that The Hobbit is a good book to do a review on because it is perfectly enjoyable for anyone from the age of 12 to adult. I have read it many times and especially enjoy reading the Fellowship Of The Ring afterwards.The Hobbit is a story about Bilbo Baggins, a small elf-like creature, often referred as a hobbit, who is abruptly taken away from his home and reluctantly drawn into a quest full of evil orcs, savage wolves, giant spiders, and other great dangers. Gandalf, the town wizard and sorcerer, takes Bilbo along with other homeless dwarves and goes on a never-to-be-forgotten adventure. Their goal is to find the treasure stolen by an evil dragon called Smaug and give it back to who it was stolen from.Bilbo Baggins is the main character in the story, son of the great Belladonna Took, one of the three remarkable daughters of the Old Took, head of the hobbits. He lives in The Shire in Middle Earth. The Shire is a peaceful place where nothing special happens. Everyday life is enjoyable for the inhabitants of the Shire but some might find it boring.Gandalf The Grey is the town wizard, he travels all over Middle Earth finding out new and exciting races of creatures and discovering new ideas for spells. Everyone in the Shire loves Gandalf as he has always helped them in time of need. It is Gandalf who helps Bilbo start his quest.Thorin and co, are the dwarves that arrive at Bilbo's home and ask him to help them on a quest. Thorin Oakenshield, son of Tharin, king under the mountain. Thorin is one of the highest respected dwarves of all time after his father. The other dwarves that accompany Thorin are; Balin, Dwalin, Dori, Nori, Ori, Oin, Gloin, Fili, Kili, Bifur, Bofur and Bombur.The story is written in the third person with the narrator following the Hobbit along the way, if they ever split up, the story follows Bilbo. The main characters are Bilbo, Thorin and the dwarves and Gandalf.The Hobbit is set in a place called 'Middle-Earth' but being a big place, the story starts in The Shire (home of Bilbo Baggins), and progresses through many places including Rivendell, Forests of The Northern and Mirkwood, finally ending up at the Lonely Mountain where Smaug the dragon lives.The story starts in The Shire, in Bilbo's house when suddenly and unexpectedly he gets many visitors, 13 to be precise. They are Dwarves. They are small-ish creatures who have immensely long beards, wear leather boots up to their knees and leather coats with hoods which only just covers their hair. The Dwarves speak of a Dragon who stole treasure from their fathers many years before and how they want to get it back. Bilbo does not know why they came to his house but he finds out it was Gandalf who told the Dwarves about him. They sing many songs in Bilbo's house before...

Do you feel that Computer generated imagery (CGI) should be the way forward for the film industry? Base your argument on at least two theoretical frameworks

3137 words - 13 pages . Rudolph Arnheim states that 'if cinema were the mere mechanical reproduction of real life it could not be an art at all'. He sees the very unreality of cinema as its greatest asset and the plasticity of its image as its major claim to art.

Independent Reading Book Report #3

698 words - 3 pages spread throughout the book, first at seemingly random periodical moments, but eventually so that they parallel the story. The author writes out Thomas Sr.’s daybooks of phrases in much the same way, a sentence such as, “I don’t speak, I’m sorry” taking up an entire page (262). I chose this book because my mom had read it and enjoyed it and I thought the story sounded very compelling. Just by looking at it you can see that it is done in an interesting way with visuals and extra ornamentation besides the text itself. I think this book would be good for anyone because it is very easy to relate with while still having somewhat intense, intertwining plotlines.
