This weekend was great but not. On the one hand depression struck again like she hasn't in a long while; I always felt on the verge of tears.

On the other hand (and I think this saved me, thank God I had this planned for a while) I and K had a glorious Hobbit-weekend. Watching parts one and two on DVD and then off to the cinema for part three. It was awesome and like I said most likely the only thing that kept me from turning into a desperate ball under a blanket.



I liked The Battle of the Five Armies. Yes, Peter Jackson changed stuff. Some major stuff. And put stuff in the story that isn't in the book.

But I think a lot of the added elements do fit in the storyline/universe, connect the Hobbit and LotR, or fleshen out the story.

The White Council, for example, is not mentioned in The Hobbit - but there was a meeting, and Saruman dissuaded the others from acting; and later Sauron was driven from Dol Guldur by the White Council.

I liked the addition of a female character, maybe the love interest wasn't really necessary but I didn't really mind. (I also liked how Éowyn and Arwen got more lines in the adaptation)

The history of the Dwarves was changed for the film, different events were combined and characters were left out - but honestly, the whole story, Thror and Nár in Moria, the killing of Azog and the death of Thrain is a little convoluted for a by-the-fireside-episode.

And Galadriel - she really, really kicks ass. <3
