The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies ★★★★½

In my view, it's the best of the three, despite some flaws, and despite the intrusive introduction of 'gaming elements' from the Lord of the Rings MMO (goat mounts, anyone?)

Beyond those annoyances, it's the first of the three I immediately wanted to watch again.

And we finally get to see an army of dwarves, although it's a small army and they're not on-screen for long, I waited 30 odd years for it to happen.
