Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Armies both good and evil battle to claim the dwarven treasure. Starring Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ian McKellen, Christopher Lee, and Cate Blanchett.
The finale to the stuffed Hobbit trilogy, director Peter Jackson does provide on the epic battle front. Things hurry along a bit too much towards the ending, and the fate of a few characters are ignored outright in the theatrical cut. The extended cut gives things room to breathe a little more but something is missing here.
