The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies first half was amazing. Then, about half-way through, the plot seemed to drag. Throw in some fight scenes, and it still didn’t improve. The ending was satisfying as the ending to this movie trilogy.
I think the reason was because I was waiting for the Dwarf King to have a more climatic resolution before he joins the army. It’s like watching the movie, I know this is going to happen and it’s suspenseful. But then it takes so long, that when it does happen, I’ve been tired of waiting.
My rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars
The actors do an amazing job and the setting/special effects are wonderful. However, there were a few plot holes – literally – like the huge earthworms that appear a few times and then…nothing.
Overall though, a good movie and a solid ending.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
