Review: The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies

When Peter Jackson announced that he'd be stretching The Hobbit into three movies I was a bit wary, but excited. While the book itself could have easily been put into one, maybe two, films there's enough lore in the world to fluff our ...

Stephen Colbert is just the best person

I mean, who else would dress up as Hobbit characters to promote The Battle of the Five Armies or defend funky lightsabers? Truly a king among us.  [via EW]

Here's the plot of The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies

You might think you know what The Battle of Five Armies is about, but do you really? The Hobbit is only a short children's book after all and yet there's another 2-plus hour long epic coming that takes its plot and stretches it th...

Review: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey blew me away when I caught it in theaters and I gave it an appropriately high score because of that. It was truly stunning and another epic coming from Peter Jackson, but upon re-watching it the compla...

See The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug early and free

After The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey turned out to be fun, but chock full of needless padding it became clear that it might not have been the best idea to stretch the book out into three films. However, it's still easy to get excite...

Yup, that's right. The artery clogging, bad cholesterol inducing Hobbit Menu at Denny's has returned for a sequel. To celebrate upcoming release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Denny's is doing a second run of their menu with all ne...

Third trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

This newest trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is a bit different from the previous one. The footage is mostly the same (maybe two or three different scenes), but the dialogue is cut much differently. There are new speeches to...

The Simpsons also did a Hobbit couch gag

Now that I'm News Editor of this fair site, expect a lot more plugs for The Simpsons than usual (although it still won't be for just anything). For instance the last time a cough gag was featured here, it was directed by Guillermo Del Toro...

Desolation of Smaug trailer reveals Smaug's voice

I actually came out of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey really enjoying it, but I do admit it had its flaws. One of which was that it felt really stretched over a thin plot. I don't think the second film, The Desolation of Smaug, is ...

Trailer: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Peter Jackson's Hobbit back in production for pick ups

It's been a little while since we last heard about the next two Hobbit movies, The Desolation of Smaug and There and Back Again. Even though I had some issues with The Hobbit: An unexpected Journey (Matt, like the majority of people, really...

The Hobbit has now made one BILLION dollars worldwide

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has done pretty well for itself given its mixed reviews. Looks like the decision to turn a singular book into a trilogy has paid off since The Hobbit became the 15th film in history (for reference, Lord of ...

These Hobbit PSAs advocate equal treatment for Balrogs

Dorkly has mocked up a few PSA posters for the folks of Middle Earth and the results are pretty funny. My favorite is in the header, but a close second has to be the "No Elevensies" poster (a reference to that heart stammering menu at Denny...

Flix for Short: The Office: An Unexpected Journey

Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey continues to thrive at the box office. While I had a lot of problems with the film's flabby storytelling, there was one thing about the movie that was perfect: Martin Freeman as Bilbo. Free...

Crazy man eats entire Denny's Hobbit Menu in one sitting

Some crazy man named Jamie "The Bear" McDonald has eaten the entire Denny's Hobbit Menu in one sitting. An absurd amount of food that two giant manly men could only eat about a third of without slowly dying.  Seriously, pray for this ...

Review: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is in a really tough spot. The film is the follow up to what is pretty much the most epic trilogy in film history. Plus, being based on a children's book and having a smaller story than its predec...

New Hobbit TV spot has brief glimpses of Smaug

The latest TV spot for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey features a few scant shots of Smaug. And I mean very scant. He just swoops in and destroys stuff, sort of like what he did in the Star Trek Into Darkness poster this morning (aka The...
