Adventure Films: Reviews, Trailers, Information and More

Prepare your snacks and get ready to embark on an epic adventure. Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" prequel, "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," is a lovely epitomic example of this genre, as you feel like you are right there with Frodo as he takes on trolls and dragons. Another one not-to-miss is the first of the blockbuster "The Hunger Games" series. A great adventure can begin in your living room ... and best of all you don't have to bring any of that awful Elvish bread.
