The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)
While it was a disappointment after the majesty of The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit still delivers a great performance from Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins. Six years before the events of The Lord of the Rings, Gandalf (Ian McKellen) persuaded Bilbo to accompany 13 dwarves on a mission to recover the Lonely Mountain from the dragon Smaug (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch).
This is one of those titles that really does what it says on the box. Is there love? Yes. Are there monsters? you betcha. Love and Monsters was an underrated release featuring Dylan O’Brien as a young man trying to reconnect with his high school girlfriend… after the apocalypse, with a bunch of monsters among them.
