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.
