  8. 'The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies' is overkillRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 18, 2014 | Philly.com

    By the beard of Gandalf the Grey, I swear I was conscious for the entirety of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies , that not a minute of its seemingly endless titular tiff - the rain of flying arrows, the marauding Orcs, the screeching bats, the Elven king Thranduil and his antlered steed, the galloping Wargs and the prosthetic noses of a baker's dozen dwarves, the clang and thwack of computer-generated combatants of every Middle-earthian stripe - escaped my attention. The third and final installment in Peter Jackson's bloated adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's wondrous 1937 children's book takes the climactic conflagration and turns it into a giant-screen videogame of clashing CGI legions, of dialogue as hoary as it is hilarious.

    Dec 11, 2014 | Forbes.com

    What else more can be said about this franchise? The three films cost New Line Cinema and MGM around $765 million to produce, which sounds like a lot until you remember that the first two made $1.01 billion and $958m worldwide respectively over the last two Decembers.
