The End of an Era

The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies

Tomorrow I am going to see the final installment of the LOTR/Hobbit movies. I will be entertained, and it may be a bittersweet experience leaving the theatre knowing nothing of that calibre will ever grace my retinas again — because all other fantasy films in general bore me, — and I know it will be a good send off.


The one thing that would ruin it for me however is if Tauriel, the Woodland Elf played by Canadian actress Evangeline Lilly, dies. I know she wasn’t part of J.R.R. Tolkien’s original book, so in that sense her character is sort of expendable and not bound to the same literary authenticity as the others, but I liked the inclusion of her character in the movie and the little love triangle thing going on. Plus I’m sick of seeing Orlando Bloom/Legolas defy every notion of gravity and propulsion. “Auta miqula orqu”, show off. Evangeline Lilly needs more big-screen time.
