I know if I were given the […]

THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG – What’s Going to Happen?

Spoilers for An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit book (even if it is seventy-five years old) follow.

HOLY F***BALLS. THE HOBBIT May Very Well Be Better Than THE LORD OF THE RINGS

The second official trailer for Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY has just hit the web and it looks utterly fantastic.
