The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
The set pieces that occur after the group embark on their way toward Lonely Mountain (spoiler alert: they don't get there in this movie), are all fairly amazing. There are mind-blowing action sequences involving goblins, mountain giants, orcs on wargs. Peter Jackson manages to utilize state-of-the-art special effects and still make the film seem from another, more old fashioned time.
