The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
I'm pretty sure that J.R.R. Tolkien would be spinning in his grave in protest against an elven/dwarven dalliance of the love kind. That sort of thing just isn't done. Elves and dwarves do not fall in love. They are not capable of true attraction to each other. They just don't do that. Hey, Hollywood, you fecked that up rather badly. Fortunately, the love affair between the elven maiden dressed in green [with red hair] and the dwarven male was short-lived.
Other than the stupidest idea going regarding inserting romance into an otherwise pretty cool movie, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies was worth viewing. I like special effects and there were lots of those in this movie. Smaug is totally awesome and his flying around and voice were both spectacular. I think Orlando Bloom is one of the hottest looking actors going these days-- total eye candy-- and his presence heated up the screen.
sapphoq reviews says: If you like the other hobbit movies, then you will like this one too. Highly recommended except for the elf/dwarf love thing.
