The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Hey, remember that time Tolkien wrote about the Eagles intervening in the Battle of the Five Armies and how they airdropped a bear into the battle?

Because I sure fucking don't.

I have no idea what I just watched. On the one hand, it's one of the worst blockbusters I've ever seen. On the other hand, it's one of the most brilliant self-parodies I have ever seen.

Imagine everything that worked in Return of the King. Now imagine Peter Jackson saying "fuck it." I think the man is so sick of making these movies that he just decided to shit on the whole franchise in this final installment.

As a LOTR movie, it's an absolute disgrace. As a comedy, it's the best I've seen in years.
