We are going to watch the Hobbit's third and last instalment finally. I have been kind of reluctant to watch it to be quite honest. As a big fan of J.R.R. Tolkien, I definitely am into the franchise, but a few things about the Hobbit trilogy tick me off:
1. It's a trilogy. Why was a very small book made into a trilogy? So that more money could be made.
2. They took out some characters and added in a girl elf; apparently because the Hobbit needed a romantic subplot. It didn't.
3. Very distracting make-up mistakes. Just watch the dwarves' hands...
I'll stop there. So why would I even want to see it? Mainly because I saw the other two and want to wrap it up (and possibly complain more). The other reason is my love of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. I love them in Sherlock and can't get enough of Cumberbatch's velvety deep voice.
Now, I will watch an episode of Sherlock with hubby (he hasn't seen season 3 yet) while continuing my DIY and tomorrow we will go and see the Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. I probably will like it more than I hate it (both feelings will be present, that's for sure). Either way: Hurray for Smauglock!
