The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

So what do we have here, Peter Jackson directing another epic story from J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit. I for one never read the book, but read all Lord of the Rings story and I find it fascinating. However Peter Jackson is familiarized with the story as he is former director of Peter Jackson and he also keeps Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen and  Ian Holm (sorry if I missed somebody) from the former trilogy of Lord of the Rings. From this collaboration only a movie as good or even better than Lord of the Rings can get.
The Trailer indicates that beside fun the characters are creating a lot of mysterious and thrilling moments. From what I could peek out is that the story is told to Frodo by Bilbo in great detail so it's like a framed movie. As I know(could be wrong though), The Hobbit was written before Lord of the Rings so is not a framed story, however I think that the whole movie is set to be linked with Lord of the Rings even if the action within has it's action before the great Frodo's adventure.
I just can't wait for the new adventure to begin, enjoy the trailer.


Puss in Boots

Trough the whole movie I was caught by the story. The writing crew did a great job. But the main image that got stuck on my mind was the image of the boots... oh... the boots were just great. I could wear those boots for ever and ever again.
What surprised me was the appearance of "Kitty Soft paws", a sexy kitten with a black mind and without claws. I don't remember seeing her in any of the trailers I watched, so I was pleasantly surprised.
I'm not good with voices, sincerely I can see a men act and speak but when it's the voice of Antonio Banderas it's hard to rate the voice interpretation.
I think that both voices, Antonio Banderas' and Salma Hayek's were suited for their characters, and they got the applause they deserved.
Anyhow, Antonio Banderas is already a classic for the Puss in Boots voice as he stared for his voice in Shrek, on the other hand, Salma Hayek is at her debut with voice acting in the movie Puss in Boots.
The greatest influence in this movie was brought by the experienced director Chris Miller. I think that a guy with such an experience is entitled to direct this animation. What I really expect is to see the sequel.
