The Hobbit movie that comes out tomorrow will be the last chance we will have to see a Tolkien book made into a movie. That is of course, unless they make the The Silmarillion into a movie, which let’s be honest, would have to be something more like a PBS special.

I was able to see an advanced screening of the Hobbit movie and it doesn’t disappoint. I encourage everyone to watch the two previous movies before the new one. It does add to the experience. Aside from that though, the movie did a good job of wrapping up everyone’s story while fleshing out the battle more than the book. My only complaint, no spoilers, is that the music score seemed to mock the action more than complement it at points in the movie.
