My wife and I have, through the graces of our Netflix disc membership, watched the entire trilogy of “The Hobbit” movies just in the last 2 weeks. We deliberately waited until the last movie was available before requesting them, so we could watch the whole run back-to-back. It was worth the wait.
Personally, I liked the way Peter Jackson (the director) tied this in with the Lord of the Rings trilogy with just a few moments at the end. That was a nice touch.
If you are a Tolkien fan, or just liked the Lord of the Rings movies, I think you’ll like the Hobbit trilogy.
