First I’d like to point out the golden globes last weekend. Second I’d also like to point out that, sadly, I haven’t seen any of those wonderful films yet. Coming back to The Hobbit, I liked the film very much. I felt they did a very good job at it. The dwarves, along with Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf the Grey, continue their quest to reclaim Erebor, their homeland, from Smaug. As we recall from the last film, Bilbo Baggins is in possession of a mysterious and magical ring which begins to take hold of him in ways he doesn’t quite understand. It does an amazing job at continuing the franchise, and building the next franchise, but may get annoying to some people who don’t like famous quotes from the LOTR series being reused here. With an incredible journey behind, and ahead of them, they still have much to do (Speaking in code for the sake of those who haven’t seen it yet). With a few guests, and familiar faces like Legolas, Radagast, and Sherlock Holmes… I mean Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug, you might as well be saying “Live from Middle Earth, it’s Saturday NIIIIIIIGGGGHHHHHHTTTTT!!!!!” It’s a horrible joke, but you get it. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is probably playing in a theater near you. Rated PG-13 for intense action sequences, and some scary images.
