Quickie: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies


  1. This series was originally going to be two films, with the first ending after the barrel chase, which is why DoS opens with a climactic action scene and the opening of BoFA has no build-up. Also in the book the battle with Smaug is the climax, and Bilbo is knocked out at the beginning of the battle of five armies and the book skips over the entire thing.

  2. "Maybe I need to read the book."

    No, mate, you don't. 90% of the stuff people are confused about is stuff Jackson added. I haven't seen it so I have no idea what these "giant worms" are.

  3. Connolly had to be CGI'd because he was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease and it got so bad that he was unable to remember or recite his lines. Luckily they had enough audio and video of him doing it before that they were able to Phillip Seymour Hoffman/Young Jeff Bridges from Tron him into a "viable" character who has able to deliver the lines coherently.

    Sad stuff.
