  • The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies 2014

    ★★½ Watched 17 Dec, 2014

    It's truly a shame that this trilogy was such a slog. I am a lover of the work of Tolkien. Hell, I have elvish tattooed on my forearm. I love this shit. But, what New Line Cinema and Peter Jackson did to The Hobbit is unforgivable. They turned a beautiful and short book into an overlong and removed franchise.

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 16 Jan, 2014 3

    Today, I embarked on a journey. A joint journey in which Gustav letterboxd.com/gustavr/ and I are very excited about. Over the next few weeks we will be going back and re-watching some of our all time favorite films. Today we began with the love of my life, Children of Men.

    When I was in the eighth grade, my love for films truly began. I was on my way to Florida on a family vacation and had rented some movies off…
