Interesting but......
Nicholas D. Blogna | Canton, Ohio United States | 03/02/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD should be called "The Life an Times of J.R.R. Tolkien"
It is interesting enough, however..... The description leads you to beleive that this DVD will offer you an in depth study of the story and characters in the Hobbit when in fact it does not. It tells you alot of interesting facts about Tolkien and gives a few opinions about his inspirations for writing the Hobbit, but nothing that you wouldn't be able to arrive at through your own thoughts. I was disappointed because I was under the impression that there would be "secrets" revealed about the events and characters in "The Hobbit" and there were none. If you are interested in Tolkien's life then this is for you, however I'm sure that there autobiographies out there that would prove to be more useful."
Where's Bilbo?
Paul Purman | Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA | 03/23/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I'm not sure I remember Bilbo's name being mentioned in this hour long + dvd. Suppose he must have been mentioned in there somewhere....

Good stuff: entertaining and informative interviews with Tolkien himself, John and Priscilla Tolkien, Rayner Unwin, Tom Shippey, and Humphrey Carpenter.

Not so good stuff: way too much of an inane narrator of the Tolkien bio, way too much of the Hildebrandts talking. No noticeable focus on The Hobbit as opposed to LOTR. And a strange segment on the music of Middle Earth.

Borrow this one."
Really Cool

"I found this DVD to to be helpful and interesting. I am a huge tolkien fan and I love The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. This DVD had some interesting facts bt it was mostly about Tolkien which I am a huge fan of. Bravo."
