The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Extended Editi&hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Martin Freeman

I'm not going to review the film itself as there are plenty of excellent ones out there, but for what it is worth, I love the film and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy so I couldn't wait for the Extended edition to arrive on Blu-ray. And I'm pleased to say it is worth the wait.

It is a plastic 'clamshell' design which helps save on space and means you can close it mid-game and continue later if you wish.
