With "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" in theaters now, fans and moviegoers are now saying goodbye to one of the most lauded fantasy series of the 21st century.  Peter Jackson has brought each book, and in the case of "The Hobbit" trilogy every detail, of the beloved series to life with much approval and love from fans, movie-lovers, and critics alike.  Personally speaking, I still believe "An Unexpected Journey" is the best of the entire "Lord of the Rings" series, as it told a coherent story while developing great characters and delivering on great visuals and thrills.  "The Desolation of Smaug" was a fun movie overall, but it had too much going on during it and didn't have the same consistent tone as the first one.  With "The Battle of the Five Armies," not only does the film have a main focus once again, but overall it tells an epic story that delivers on being a satisfying conclusion to an iconic series of modern fantasy flicks.  The film might not be for everyone, but it surely was for me.  Aside from the opening 10 minutes feeling absolutely out of place from the rest of the film, I had absolutely nothing wrong with this.  In my eyes, "The Hobbit" trilogy, and more importantly the "Lord of the Rings" series, has ended on a very high note, and this final installment is definitely something I recommend people going to check out.

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
