Good and Evil in "The Hobbit" (2012)

  • Jan 1, 2013 · 11:15 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Tuesday January 1st, 11:55 AM movie showing time now committed. Meeting early at 11:15 AM to get good seats.

Let's watch a 3-D movie and have a philosophical discussion afterward during a late lunch (or coffee/tea) at Panera. It is the Peter Jackson's movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012). This movie offers several levels of analysis. For anyone who has read the book of a similar name by J. R. R. Tolkien, this movie can be analyzed for fidelity in interpreting the book, or at least the part being serialized; and it can be analyzed secondly for the author's own philosophical framework in staging the story. The book aside, the movie can also be analyzed as a stand-alone film or in comparison to Jackson's other Tolkien-inspired movies The Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001, 2002, 2003). (-Tom)

The movie time is at 11:55 AM on New Year's Day, Tuesday, Jan 1, 2013. Let's meet early, about 11:15 AM, to get good seats. Edwards Mira Mesa Stadium is one block west of the I-15, Mira Mesa Blvd exit. After exiting the I-15 freeway at Mira Mesa Blvd., go west to Westview Parkway, turn left, and it is on your left.

Unless you are one of those who asked me to buy their tickets on Sunday evening (Camilia and Tom), you might want to purchase your tickets here so you don't have to worry about purchasing them after you get there. (-Mike)
