Recently I watched The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies DVD – I didn’t get around to seeing it at the cinema, so had to wait until the DVD release. Overall I enjoyed the movie. It had action along with emotional moments, and was a typical all-round good movie, which I have kind of come to expect from Peter Jackson.
Richard Armitage played crazed Thorin really well – seriously, I wanted to shake him and yell, “Get a grip!” I loved getting to see Legolas again; I just love to watch him move – what is it with Elves? It’s almost like they’re dancing when they fight. I find it kind of hypnotic – am I strange? Please say no. And, I do like the relationship between Tauriel and Kili. Although, I was a little lets say baffled? by one scene. Tauriel is an excellent fighter – the woman can kick some major arse – but there’s one scene where I felt like she had to lose, just so a certain someone could come in and try to save her. I know the opponent was really strong, but Tauriel is highly skilled and always manages to win in the end, but in this instance I feel like it was set up for her to lose – well, it’s in the script, so it was set up like that. 😉
I enjoyed watching it. I teared-up at times. Oh, and I want an eagle. Just thought I’d tell you that. I want to soar through the air atop an eagle. Imagine the Harry Potter Soaring Through the Sky Atop a Hippogriff scene…

Thor. Need I say more? I do? Okay, I probably do need to say more… I know it’s called Avengers, but I just love that guy. When is there going to be another Thor movie? He’s probably one of the few guys who can make long hair look good on a man, and he has a sense of humor. That’s important! I should probably move on, right? Well, he’s not the only one who made me laugh; I like how amongst all the action, there is also humor spread throughout. Even the villain made me laugh.
It was nice to see more elements of some of the Avengers life’s. I came to like Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow. I don’t remember really feeling anything for her previously, but came to like her in this movie.
Overall it was a good action packed movie, which will make you laugh.

What about you? Have you seen these movies? Anyone else want a giant eagle? If you could have one of the Avengers abilities/skills, which would you choose? I like the idea of Black Widows’ fighting skills and Hawkeyes’ archery skills, but if I had to choose…I think I would have to go with Thors’ abilities – I know, big surprise, right? But, I wouldn’t be able to pass up that controlling lightning ability.
