Film Feature: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Recently, John and I saw the latest Hobbit movie: The Battle of the Five Armies. In full disclosure, I have not read The Hobbit. I have tried to read it several times, but I never made it through. I got confused with all the names and there's a lot of singing. 

However, I have enjoyed the movie series. It makes me wish that each Lord of the Rings movie had been broken down into 2 or 3 movies. 

I did enjoy this final installation of The Hobbit. That being said, in all honesty, it wasn't my favorite out of the three movies. I enjoyed the first movie the most. There were many enjoyable parts to this movie, however. I enjoyed the overall arc of the characters, particularly the elves and the dwarfs. I enjoyed learning more about the wizards and some of the precursory story to the Lord of the Rings

What were some of your favorite components of this movie? Is this your favorite out of three? If not, which movie is your favorite?


  1. we saw this movie too and I don't remember reading it . This too wasn't my favorite either...I think because not too many stories were cleared up . I also thought that there was alot of fighting but that happens with 5 armies. I did like that it lead to the other movies. :) I also enjoyed Lee Pace and seeing Orlando .

    1. Yes...lot's of fighting for sure. Overall, a great movie series! :)
