It's Smauglock Time

We are going to watch the Hobbit's third and last instalment finally.  I have been kind of reluctant to watch it to be quite honest.  As a big fan of J.R.R. Tolkien, I definitely am into the franchise, but a few things about the Hobbit trilogy tick me off:

1.  It's a trilogy.  Why was a very small book made into a trilogy?  So that more money could be made.

2.  They took out some characters and added in a girl elf; apparently because the Hobbit needed a romantic subplot. It didn't.

3.  Very distracting make-up mistakes.  Just watch the dwarves' hands...

I'll stop there.  So why would I even want to see it? Mainly because I saw the other two and want to wrap it up (and possibly complain more).  The other reason is my love of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.  I love them in Sherlock and can't get enough of Cumberbatch's velvety deep voice.

Now, I will watch an episode of Sherlock with hubby (he hasn't seen season 3 yet) while continuing my DIY and tomorrow we will go and see the Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.  I probably will like it more than I hate it (both feelings will be present, that's for sure).  Either way: Hurray for Smauglock!
