Hobbit II: With a vengeance, this time it's personal & etc.

by John MacBeath Watkins

I went to what was advertised as a hobbit movie last night. It appeared in fact to be Bilbo Baggins and the Temple of Doom, or some such bilge, an action-adventure thriller with lots of chase scenes, forbidden love, and martial arts featuring improbable physics, all built on a rather overloaded armature of Tolkien's original plot.
