Review: The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies  (2014)  

The final film in The Hobbit trilogy picks up directly where The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug left off with the dragon hammering down on Lake Town where Luke Evans takes down the beast. But his victory comes too late, and the townsfolk follow him to the foot of The Lonely Mountain where Thorin suffers from “dragon sickness” guarding his treasure. Before it all ends, there are orcs, goblins, a dwarf prince  on a giant pig, elves, bats, mountain worms and – to The Black Saint’s surprise and elation  – large eagles dropping bears into the battle.

Thomas is thrilled to review the latest holiday special to the highly regarded UK “Twilight Zone” anthology series, The Black Mirror Christmas Special.  Jon Hamm leads the cast in a show that explores the  sinister side of technology in fascinating and inventive ways. Check it out with Thomas’ highest recommendation.
