So last night, my parents and I watched the last Hobbit at the cinema for our Christmas film and let’s just say it was outstanding. I was blown away with gorgeous cinematography, tense battle scenes and an ending that I found myself crying through, yes, crying. Mainly because I didn’t expect any of the dwarves to die (if you haven’t seen it yet, I hope that doesn’t give too much away) and I personally thought none of the dwarfs should have but I guess it would have happened as it’s the last film.
And that’s another thing that is truly sad, there won’t be anymore Hobbit films! However, I did think that some characters were left open, such as Legolas where Thranduil sends him off to find Strider at the end of the film. For the past six years, my family have been to the cinema at Christmas to watch The Lord of The Rings and then the Hobbit but they’re all finished. Now I don’t really know what to do with myself. What in the name of cats pyjamas are we going to do next year?
I did think that The Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit were equally as good but in their own right and there is no way I could choose between them. I’ve decided I’m going to read Tolkien’s books now, on The Hobbit and I’ll get back to you on how I found those at a later date.
