Music in film: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

18 December 2012 3:38 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Ivan Radford Dec 19, 2012

As The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey dominates the box office, Ivan has a listen to Howard Shore's superb score...

Like a pair of old jeans that you hope still fit, returning to Middle-Earth after nine years was always going to be a daunting prospect. Thanks to its strange new 48fps appearance and a padded script that tried to turn it into a Lord Of The Rings prequel, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey didn't fit quite as comfortably as everyone hoped.

Not so for composer Howard Shore. Howard slips into those trousers with all the silky charm of Ian McKellen’s eyebrows, recapturing the mood of his original scores while also developing new themes; the characters are all new, but the backdrop feels the same.

And backdrops don't get much better than this. If Peter Jackson was bonkers to try and film Tolkien’s fantasy epic »
