The [Unnecessary] Defining Chapter | Review of The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies


A movie that is LOOSELY based on the novel “The Hobbit” by J. R. R. Tolkein. This overzealous and unnecessary film will disappoint fans of the original Lord of the Rings trilogy. Peter Jackson, the who was so determined to stay true to the Lord of the Rings series has faltered and has rewritten the Hobbit novel, turning a small adventurous comedic children’s book into a prolonged and redundant trilogy.

By: Sean O’Connell From what we’re hearing, Warner might plan to have a trailer for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug attached to Man of Steel when the Superman story opens in theaters on June 14. Makes sense, right? Use one massive blockbuster to help tease your next massive blockbuster, even thought the second Hobbit movie doesn’t reach theaters until December. If you need more clues that Warner has Hobbit news up its sleeve, the studio released an official Smaug photo to EW.com, but who is that beautiful archer? That would []

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Pt. 1)


There and back again…oh my lord this was a great movie. Peter Jackson has once again done it again. He has taken a great work of fiction and turned it into a visual masterpiece. The cinematography was, needless to say, brilliant and mesmerizing. I mean this really was a great adaptation, I felt like I was reading the book. There was, however, addition of scenes that were not in the book, like the scene with Cate Blanchet, which was not in the []

Wellington, New Zealand To Rename Itself The Middle Of Middle-Earth For The Hobbit Premiere


By: Eric Eisenberg If it weren’t for New Zealand the Lord of the Rings trilogy would have been much worse off. Not only is it the home country of director Peter Jackson, it was the majestic nature of the country’s topography that brought the world of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth to life.

While both Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby had been scheduled to open on the historically crowded December 25 holiday, Gatsby has blinked, and Warner Bros. has delayed the period film’s release to next summer. That’s probably a good thing for all parties involved, since the competition in that holiday window is looking []

By: Katey Rich After weeks of rumors that Peter Jackson and his collaborators would take on the massive challenge of yet another movie set in Middle Earth, the man himself has confirmed it in his typical low-key, democratic way: via Facebook post.

Your Summer Reading Guide: 16 Great Books About To Become Movies


By: CB Staff “Yeah, but it wasn’t as good as the book.” You hear that about movies all the time pretty much no matter what, whether it’s a spin on a huge best-selling series like Harry Potter or an intimate adaptation of a highbrow novel like Jane Eyre. We love movies here are much as anybody, but we also know there’s nothing quite like the experience of reading book, feeling like you’re living with these characters in your head for weeks and []
