Anthony Stark Reviews: THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES The sixth and supposed "last" film in the Lord of the Rings universe has just made it's way to the big screen, so I took a bunch of friends and fellow nerds to check it out and see if it was worth the watch. Scroll down below to check out my spoiler-free thoughts on the plot, the characters, action and more!

So with a final battle around 45 minutes long, you already know that the plot is pretty weak compared to the previous films.

‘Into the Woods’ Review: Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt Shine in Sondheim’s Storybook Musical The stage musical “Into the Woods” delightfully reminded audiences that while happy endings are possible, you should always be careful about what you’ve wished for.

Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy & More Up for Role in 'Doctor Strange' Now that Marvel Studios has officially confirmed "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch as the title mystical hero in Doctor Strange, the focus has shifted to the supporting roles. So far nobody else has been cast in the film that will be directed by Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us from Evil) and written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), though there have been rumblings (and potentially confused details) about Daniel Bruhl's character from Captain America: Civil War potentially crossing over into Doctor Strange.

King Kong Runs Away From Doctor Strange And Trolls The planned reboot of the King Kong franchise, Skull Island, has gotten a minor title change and new release date. Originally scheduled for November 4th, 2016, Universal’s now titled Kong: Skull Island will hit theaters on March 10, 2017. The film stars Tom Hiddleston and will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and written by John Gatins and Max Borenstein.
